Ancelotti rues 'little mistakes'
Carlo Ancelotti admitted Bayern Munich were caught cold in their 2-0 loss at Hoffenheim on Saturday that left them fifth in the Bundesliga, their lowest position since 2014.
Striker Mark Uth scored both Hoffenheim goals as Bayern head coach Ancelotti paid the price for rotating his squad ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match at home to Anderlecht.
"Little details have made the difference and we went behind because we didn't concentrate," fumed Ancelotti. "It was the same for the second goal, which made things difficult.
"We had a lot of opportunities, but we could not make use of them and did not concentrate 100 percent.
"Hoffenheim only got into the box three times and scored from two of them, the other chance was saved by Manuel Neuer."
Bayern fell behind on 27 minutes after the defence was slow to react to a quick throw-in from Andrej Kramaric which led to Uth firing past Neuer.
"We didn't behave well after going 1-0 down," said Neuer. "We had Hoffenheim completely under control, but we didn't take the lead, that is the problem."
Uth drilled home a second on 51 minutes as the hosts registered back-to-back wins over the Bavarian giants.
