UCL: He hunted Odegaard like a dog – Muller names player that gave Bayern belief

Bayern Munich superstar, Thomas Muller has revealed the club’s source of confidence going into the second leg of their Champions League game against Real Madrid.

According to him, the performance of Konrad Laimer in their UCL win against Arsenal helped give his side a massive boost of confidence.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were able to stick together as a unit to defeat Arsenal 1-0 in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on April 17, winning 3-2 on aggregate.

Laimer had a phenomenal outing in the Bayern midfield, neutralizing Martin Odegaard’s threat level on the night.

Speaking to CBS Sports following Bayern’s 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in the first leg of the UCL semi-finals, Muller was asked what gave Bayern the belief to reach the semi-final.

“The games and the win over Arsenal gave us a little bit of self-confidence. Not the team spirit where you go out and drink a beer together but it gave us this belief, this kind of… this Konni Laimer feeling when he is hunting Odegaard like a dog, maybe you know this story.

“This winning feeling, it gave us a little bit more belief in ourselves to be a bit more aggressive in the last few weeks. We’re in a good mood, we are not playing perfectly but we are playing better.”

Bayern will face Real Madrid in the second leg of the semi-finals at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, May 8.
