Manuel Neuer concedes that missed chances cost his side dearly as they suffered a shock 3-1 defeat to BATE Borisov in the Champions League.

Manuel Neuer has admitted that missed chances cost Bayern Munich as they slipped to a first defeat of the season against BATE Borisov.

Bayern were guilty of spurning a series of opportunities in Belarus, and lost 3-1 despite a late consolation from Frank Ribery.

Neuer told reporters that he can still take the positives from the performance despite a shock defeat.

The German said: "We missed the chance to take the lead and I think things would have been different if we had.

"BATE defended well and hit us with counterattacks. Of course it is disappointing to lose 3-1, but you cannot complain about the team's efforts."

Bayern now trail to BATE in a keenly-contested Group F, with Borisov topping the table with maximum points from their first two games.
