Bayern defender Dante: We must improve
Bayern Munich defender Dante has insisted that the Bundesliga leaders must improve after their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal, despite progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The Brazilian saw Theo Walcott’s low cross go through his legs and set up Oliver Giroud to give Arsenal a shock lead at the Allianz Arena this evening.
Bayern stormed to a 3-1 victory at the Emirates three weeks ago but failed to produce a similar performance, before Laurent Koscielny’s late header set up a tense finale.
Dante said: "We were not as compact as in the last game. Tomorrow we will try to improve our approach to games from this point of view.
"Tonight's defeat was deserved, we must be critical of ourselves. We have been shown that there are teams that can beat us in Munich."
The Bavarians could now meet Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray, Malaga, Juventus or league rivals Borussia Dortmund in the final eight.
"I have no preference for the quarter-final opponents, we have to focus on ourselves," Dante concluded.
