The Bavarians were beaten 3-2 by the Partenopei, but the 67-year-old coach saw a competitive game as the perfect preparation for the start of his side's domestic campaignBayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes felt that there were plenty of positives for him to draw upon after Friday night's friendly clash with Napoli - even though the result went against his side.
The Bavarians were beaten 3-2 in Arco in northern Italy, with Lorenzo Insigne netting a late winner for the Partenopei. However, Heynckes was far from downcast after the game, arguing that Bayern's players would be all the better for such a competitive outing.
"I'm happy with the way my team played for long spells," he told his club's official website. "That was a good and valuable test, which tells you a lot more than when you play a team and beat them 11-0."
David Alaba had opened the scoring for Bayern following great work from Arjen Robben, but Napoli levelled through Paolo Cannavaro right on half-time before Goran Pandev edged the Italians ahead mid-way through the second period.
New signing Xherdan Shaqiri looked to have earned Heynckes' troops a draw when he slotted home a free-kick on 73 minutes, but Insigne had the final say for Napoli.
