Bayern Munich’s Thomas Mueller says there is no need to panic as the Bundesliga leaders look to get back to winning ways when they play Eintracht Frankfurt away on Saturday.
Bayern dropped their first league points of the season after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Cologne a fortnight ago, four days after their Champions League defeat at Atletico Madrid.
The Bavarian giants have 16 points a possible 18, but two games without a win equates to something of a mini-crisis for Bayern, who are three points ahead of Hertha Berlin in the table.
However, the slight dip in form is not a concern for Germany forward Mueller.
“With a new coach, we won all of our first eight games, but not our last two and suddenly there’s a fire under the roof again,” he said.
“We’re still top of the table, will certainly qualify for the knock-out stages of the Champions League, so there is no need to paint everything black.”
Frankfurt lost at Freiburg two weeks ago, but are unbeaten at home in their last six matches.
Eintracht have failed to score in their last eight games against Bayern, dating back to 2011, and Munich have won seven of those league encounters with one goalless draw.
