Bayern München coach Hansi Flick believes his team lacked their usual sharpness in their Champions League quarter-final tie against Paris Saint-Germain.

After losing 2-3 at home in the first leg, Bayern needed to score at least twice in Paris to go through on Tuesday, but Flick's troops only managed to win 1-0 and crashed out on away goals.

"Given the first leg, with all our chances and the ones we gave away; without the third goal, we would be through. You saw how dangerous they are in attack. I have to pay huge compliments to my team, even though Paris progressed. As a fair loser, I would like to congratulate them," said Flick in an interview with Sky Germany (via UEFA.com).

"Normally, my team has so much quality in the final third, but today they were lacking the final punch. We have to accept that, even though we would have liked a different outcome."

Bayern captain Manuel Neuer pointed out that the German champions made life unnecessarily difficult for themselves by losing 2-3 in the first leg in Munich.

"We weren't eliminated tonight, the result in Munich needed to be better. That was frustrating because we missed so many chances. We're on our last legs – it's tough against such a top side, but the players gave everything on the pitch," Neuer told Sky.
