Copenhagen coach: getting into the Champions League playoffs depends only on us

Copenhagen head coach Jakob Neestrup shared his opinion on the team's chances of reaching the Champions League playoffs after the match with Bayern Munich, which ended in a 0-0 draw. Neestrup noted that the team will do everything possible to successfully complete the group stage and advance to the next stage of the tournament.

"We have nothing to be happy about yet. We will do our best to successfully complete what we started in the game with Galatasaray and reach the playoffs. I know that many scenarios are possible, but I think we managed to surprise the fans. We are not just fighting for the playoffs - our fate is in our own hands. It all depends on us," the coach said.

In Group A, Copenhagen is in second place with five points after five matches. The teams in third and fourth place, Galatasaray and Manchester United, have five and four points respectively. In the final round, Copenhagen will play Galatasaray at home, and Bayern Munich will play Manchester United away.

Bayern midfielder Thomas Muller shared his opinion on the draw with Copenhagen (0-0) in the match of the 5th round of the Champions League group stage. He expressed dissatisfaction with the team's performance, especially in terms of failures in attack.

"We are unhappy with the game. Especially as an attacking player, I'm angry that we didn't manage to score a goal. We didn't take enough risks. We could have scored in the first half. We've created some decent situations, but it's not that easy against such a deep block. You never run to the goal alone, because the opponent defends with all his might," said Muller.

He also praised Copenhagen for their organized defense and ability to play against attacking teams. Following the results of five rounds, Bayern Munich occupies the first place in Group A with 13 points, ahead of Copenhagen, Galatasaray and Manchester United.
