thumbnail Hello,

The Swiss side's boss is hoping that they can replicate their winning display in Bavaria in three weeks' time and has spoken of the confidence within his side's camp

Basel coach Heiko Vogel is delighted with his side's second-half performance against Bayern Munich.

The Swiss side netted a late winner against the Bavarians through Valentin Stocker, and despite striking the post twice in the first period, Vogel said he was far from happy with their opening 45 minutes.

"I was not satisfied with the first half. Offensively we didn't put enough effort in. At the break I told the lads that we needed to make more of our possession," he said according to uefa.com.

"We were able to implement that in the second-half, and of course I got a bit lucky with the substitutions."

Despite taking a first-leg advantage, Vogel concedes that the tie is far from over and is targeting another impressive performance in Bavaria in three weeks' time.

"This victory is one thing, the overall result is another. But we are capable of scoring away goals and if we do that in Munich, it will be very difficult for Bayern.

"We are in a great position ahead of the second leg."

Finally, Vogel spoke of the team spirit that embodies the Swiss side, and their hope that the good work pays off.

"My team have unbelievable willpower, a good sense of who they are and healthy self confidence.

"We have a perfect harmony. Every day we enjoy the work we do and that will pay off at some point."

Bayern Munich and Basel meet again at the Allianz Arena on March 13.
