The former Bayern Munich manager Ottmar Hitzfeld has said that the German team will be able to dominate against the French champions Lille when the two come up against each other in the Champions League. The Switzerland national team manager Ottmar Hitzfeld had a successful spell with the German club on many occasions.

He has seen the team lift the European cups and domestic titles with great success in recent seasons. He has said that they will once again be able to produce a magnificent performance against the French champions Lille. He has said that the shock loss at the hands of BATE is nothing more than an unusual occurrence.

Ottmar Hitzfeld claims that the Bayern Munich players were distracted ahead of this match, which led to the shock defeat at the hands of the minnows. Bayern Munich have had a lot of pain in this competition in recent seasons after being in two finals in the last three seasons without much success. In the away match against Lille, Bayern Munich struggled to assert their superiority in the match. They defended for the majority of the match and had to settle for a narrow win over the French champions. This time around, they will be much more confident when it comes to attacking according to the Switzerland manager.

"Bayern were under pressure in Lille after the defeat to BATE Borisov. You could see that in the players. Therefore, more emphasis was placed on defending rather than going all-out attack. It was a hard-fought win and was all about the result. That was important. Munich will dazzle once again at the Allianz Arena, of that I'm sure. There’ll be no slip-up against Lille. Nothing much needs to be said about Bayern," said Hitzfeld ahead of Bayern's Champions league match with Lille.
