The treble champions equalled Barcelona’s record of wins a row when they saw off Viktoria Plzn 0-1 last night.
After smashing the Czech team 5-0 in the reverse leg last month, the single goal they scored last night was somewhat of an anti-climax.
Star midfielder Toni Kroos admits it was not a “festival of football”, but he says his team ought to be proud of its impressive winning run in Europe.
However, despite their seamless progression to the knockout stage of the Champions League, Bayern’s brains trust was not exactly crowing about their recent form.
Skipper Philipp Lahm, who unlocked Plzen’s defence with a sumptuous pass to create Mario Mandzukic’s winning goal, has demanded his team play with more potency for 90 minutes.
"As quickly as possible, we have to make sure we don't sleep through the early stages like we've been doing recently,” he said.
"We keep letting our opponents believe they can take something from the match. We beat Plzen 5-0 at the Allianz Arena, so it's possible we were a bit more relaxed about tonight's match, but we can't be letting that happen."
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola meanwhile, doffed his cap to his predecessor Jupp Heynckes, who he is says is mainly responsible for the club equalling Barca’s record.
"I'm grateful to Jupp [Heynckes]. He's made a bigger contribution to the record than I have," he said.
