Pep Guardiola was far from impressed as his side played out a 3-3 draw against Hoffenheim on Saturday, and believes his side must improve when they face Manchester United next week.
The frustrated manager noted that a massive improvement would be needed if his side are to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday in the Champions League, after his side blew a two-goal lead as they failed to record 20 straight league wins.
After falling behind early on, the newly-crowned Bundesliga champions took a 3-1 lead in the match against Hoffenheim, only to concede late on as the visitors snatched a draw.
"Compliments to Hoffenheim," Guardiola said to the Bavarain's official website after the draw. "They showed good ability to press.
"In the first half we found good solutions. In the second half, though, we were not good.
"We need to control the ball. If this is not the case, then we have a problem.
"We need to analyse this game and then quickly focus on Tuesday. We need to improve."
On Tuesday, the German champions will arrive at Old Trafford for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash, as they continue their bid to retain the European trophy.
Bayern overcame Arsenal in the last round and are firm favourites to reach the last four.
