Speaking to DAZN after the game, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann expressed his disappointment with Pavard, describing the right-back's sliding tackle as unnecessary.
"I hope it will only be two games [of suspension]. I think the sliding tackle wasn't absolutely necessary and that we could have defended the situation better," said Nagelsmann.
"I think it was a red card. It was a tackle on the achilles tendon, which is usually not a good place to tackle."
