The Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has said that he is extremely confident that the club will be able to get a good result against the French club Lille in the Champions League. Bayern Munich have made a great start to the new season by winning all of the matches in the German league. However, they recently suffered a shock defeat in the Champions league after losing 3-1 to minnows BATE Borisov. This surprising defeat now means that Bayern Munich need to get all three points in the match against Lille in order to sustain the position as the favourites to top the group.
Speaking ahead of the match, the German international said that he is extremely confident that the club and the players will not be worried too much about to the previous European result. He believes that the excellent form in the league will provide them with enough confidence when they take on the French champions. He has also said that he needs to improve a lot in order to feature more regularly in the first-team. The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the best players in the Bayern Munich team, but he feels that he can offer even more.
“We will drive to Lille with a lot of confidence and tailwind. We are favourites in the group. Due to our defeat against BATE Borisov, of course we are under a lot of pressure, without a question. I do not want to think about the match [against BATE] anymore. At the moment we feel superb, and that’s all that matters. Certainly, at 22 years of age, there is still a lot of room for improvement,” said the 22-year-old ahead of the Champions league encounter. Bayern Munich currently have a healthy lead over the other clubs in the German league.
