“It wasn’t an optimal performance, but there were one or two moments where we could have equalised, and then it would be a different story. We gave everything, you could see we were trying to strike back, even if it looked a bit chaotic,” Muller said.

“We risked everything. I don’t know any team in sport that has remained undefeated for years. Obviously, it’s not what we wanted and before the game I didn’t think this would happen. But it did. Now we have to deal with it, rest well and turn to the next game on Wednesday. We have a great opportunity to fight back.”
