Heynckes: Lille`s win might’ve kept us from giving 100%
Bayern Munich manager, Jupp Heynckes admitted that the Lille`s win over BATE earlier in the evening, thus guaranteeing the Bavarians a guaranteed spot in the next round, could have played into the team`s performance in a 1-1 draw with Valencia at La Mestalla on Tuesday evening.

“Valencia defended very well, we could not find space, which gives us homework for the next match. Valencia played at a very high level, but it was a very even match. They showed that they players can play to their fullest.
“Bayern can and will improve. Lille`s win might’ve influenced our performance, which is why, perhaps, we didn`t play at 100%. Valencia is one of the three biggest clubs in Spain and are never easy. They had a very good performance.”
