Guardiola Says Bayern Lack 'Killer Instinct'Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, says he is disappointed with his team’s performance, as he struggled to explain the Bundesliga giants’ 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Tuesday night.

The German side, which controlled huge swathes of the Group F game at the Emirates, had 68% of the ball, carved out several great chances, but unusually lacked a killer instinct in front of goal.

Until the disappointing loss, Bayern had won the 12 games they had played in all competitions, setting a Bundesliga record of nine straight victories from the start of the season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, had expressed satisfaction with the Gunners performance at Emirates Stadium.Wenger

He said he was delighted that his team reproduced their recent outstanding premier league form to revive their faltering European fortunes with the 2-0 win over Bayern.

For long periods, it seemed the English side were either going to lose, or at best secure a draw.

A 77th-minute header from substitute Olivier Giroud and a stoppage-time second from Germany international, Mesut Ozil gave them an unexpected but hugely important victory.

The result means Arsenal have revived their chances of qualifying for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League for the 16th successive season, even as they trail Bayern and Olympiakos by three points.
