Pep: We Were In Control

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola feels that his side controlled the game despite a narrow 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Mario Mandzukic fired Die Roten to victory in their first away game of the new season and Guardiola was pleased with the improvement he has seen.

"Compared to last week, we are now controlling the game much better," Guardiola said.

"Before, against Borussia Monchengladbach, we allowed too many mistakes, but today we were better in that aspect. It's never easy after international matches, we only had three days to prepare.

"Despite that were ready for the occasion. I am happy and 100 per cent content."

Bayern winger Arjen Robben also felt that fitness played a role in the game being so close, due to the international break.

"The games when players come back from international duty are always difficult," the Dutchman told AZ.

"One's travelling from South America, one from Asia, but they can only train on Thursday, then just a bit on Friday.

"The players had a little break, but the ones you notice are the ones who aren't at 100 per cent. But you have to go on, and wanting to win a game is a mental thing.

"At the start, the most important thing is to win games. A 1-0 is always tight. We had enough opportunities to make it 2-0. If you don't, then it stays tight until the end."
