In the away end, the Bayern fans protested the price of Champions League away tickets; tonight's costly trip saw them pay £55 ($71.50). "They outclassed us in every department and it's quite sobering", Lampard said.
"In the second half, they accelerated with counterattacks". They hurt us, they were efficient.
"Three goals should give us a lot of confidence, we need to be prepared for the second leg and we can't take it serious enough".
"I searched up his name, followed him back and he sent me a message saying: 'Welcome to the team, look forward to seeing you soon.' I replied back saying: 'Thank you, I can't wait to come'".
He went on a mazy run before squaring the ball to Robert Lewandowski who slotted home. "It's a competition I'll lose sleep over, but on the other hand I nearly never sleep now", continued the 42-year-old. The level of team they are is why they challenge in the Bundesliga and Europe year in, year out.
Speaking of Giroud ahead of the game, Lampard said, "The way the team worked helped Oli and Oli helped the team". The wing-back slots should once again be occupied by youngster Reece James and Marcos Alonso, who was on the scoresheet in the win against Tottenham at the weekend. "We will have nearly nothing to lose", the ex-Arsenal man explained.
"We are pushing for a strong finish in the Premier League, the Europa League and the FA Cup as we enter the final third of the season". We tried to put together the same energy we produced three days ago, against Tottenham, with the same team. We need to move on and focus on what's next now, even if in the first half we could have done better because we had opportunities to score. "We have to be real and realise when you face someone better than you".
However, Woodward would not be pushed on City's individual case, although he did say that he was satisfied with the way that the Financial Fair Play laws are being administered.
Lampard could not hide his frustration and made it clear few of his players came out of the match with any credit.
"I learned about the players". There are nights like this when it's frustrating for the attackers.
Manchester City's all-time record goalscorer continues to score at a prolific rate, recently becoming the highest scoring foreign player in the history of the Premier League and rising to fourth in the overall rankings. But you don't have to keep your head down and we've got to bounce back as soon as possible.
