Tuchel "frustrated and angry" after Lazio defeat

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel was unsurprisingly not happy after Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Lazio.
Pressure is mounting on Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel after a 3-0 defeat to title rivals Bayer Leverkusen was followed by a 1-0 loss to Lazio in the Champions League on Wednesday.

In a post-match interview, Tuchel said he was "frustrated and angry" at the defeat and that his team "lost their conviction" in the second half.

"We're frustrated and angry about the defeat. I think we lost the game; I'm not sure Lazio won it. I'm not sure why we lost our conviction in the second half, but we did and then we fell behind. I can't explain it because we told the team to maintain their intensity and be even braver going forward, but we seemed to lose face at the start of the half," Tuchel said, according to UEFA.com.

"There are things we can build on. In the first half, we created some good chances, some big chances and one huge one with Jamal [Musiala], but in the end we didn't have a single shot on target, so it's clear you can't win a game like that. But we've got a second leg and, obviously in conjunction with the last result, it doesn't look great, but we'll keep working hard."

Bayern will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to Bochum this weekend.
