Champions League: 'It Wasn’t Easy' – Lewandowski Reacts As Bayern Defeat Barcelona 2-0
Robert Lewandowski made a quick exit at the Allianz Arena after enduring a difficult night as Bayern Munich sealed a 2-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League
Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, left the Allianz Arena quickly following a 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Lewandowski endured a miserable night on his return to Germany, as Bayern moved to the top of Group C, as goals from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane sealed victory.
The Poland striker only left the Bundesliga champions for a € 50 million(£42.5m) fee to Barcelona this summer.
The 34-year-old has made an impressive start to his time at the Nou Camp with seven goals in nine games so far.
But Lewandowski was unable to make an impact against his former club last night, as a glaring miss in the 18th minute set the tone for a miserable evening.
According to Bild, Lewandowski left the stadium quickly after the game, while his only words to reporters after the game were, “it wasn’t that easy”.
Meanwhile, Xavi said he is ‘angry and proud’ after the loss to Bayern Munich and believes his Barcelona side did not deserve to lose the game.
Xavi stated: "I think we were better in many ways, we matched them physically, we dominated the ball. But you can’t let them off that much. The feeling is that you dominate, but you lose. Learning is hard."
"I’m angry. Angry and proud too. We were better, but this is about winning. They are already built [as a team] and we’re in the process. We have to improve.
"The result is bad. The process is very good. You have to minimize errors. We failed a lot, there was a lack of effectiveness. The game was very good, but I’m upset, it was an opportunity to win in this place once and for all.
