Carlo Ancelotti refused to blame Bayern Munich backup goalkeeper Sven Ulreich for his glaring blunder which allowed Wolfsburg a lifeline, as the German champions squandered a two-goal advantage in a disappointing 2-2 draw at the Allianz Arena.

Better value, though, could lie in backing Bayern to win by at least three clear goals against Schmidt's side; the selection would have paid dividends in each of Bayern's last four victories in all competitions and bet365's 6/5 (2.20) quote for the trend to continue could offer good value once again here.

Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben had given Bayern a commanding lead at half-time, but Ulreich's error and a late equaliser from Daniel Didavi saw Wolfsburg rescue an unlikely point in Munich. "We were too slow, without intensity and not compact enough".

"The point, the performance, the passion and the mentality, which we showed in the second half, belong to my predecessor, Andries Jonker". "I want to rotate".

"We did not have the game under control as usual, so the game went like this. That was the reason for the result".

"We have played the same system with players with different characteristics".

Before Paris, Bayern are heading for their annual visit to the Oktoberfest on Saturday.

The women's player of the year award is to be contested between Venezuelan striker Deyna Castellanos, US midfielder Carli Lloyd, and Leike Martens, who helped Netherlands to the Euro 2017 title.

"Unfortunately, we let them back in the game". When you let in a goal like that, the game becomes completely open and you can always let in another.

At 2-1, Wolfsburg sensed their opportunity, as Yunnus Malli repeatedly threatened Bayern on the left flank.

Just after the 30-minute mark, Lewandowski cleverly won a penalty for Bayern after a stunning flick over his own head.
