Bayern Munich have a lot of work to do despite PSG victory - Jupp Heynckes

ESPN FC's Craig Burley is at odds with the loads of criticism heading in PSG's direction after a loss to Bayern in the Champions League.

Bayern Munich have not yet peaked and have a lot of hard work ahead despite their 3-1 Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain, coach Jupp Heynckes has said.

The result followed a 3-0 defeat in the reverse fixture in September, which led to the departure of former boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Bayern have since cruised into the knockout stages of the Champions League and opened up a six-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.

But Heynckes, whose side travel to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend, told a news conference: "We have not yet peaked.

"I won't be dazzled by past games. I am pleased how we acted tactics-wise, and we are certainly part of larger group of favourites.

"But we have to be there in February, March, April. We still have a lot of work ahead of us."

Bayern could have finished top of their group with a 5-1 win over PSG, and while defender Mats Hummels later said they should have played for a bigger win, Heynckes said: "I think it's great some players wanted to go for a 4-1, a 5-1.

"But you can do that in the knockout stages, in the last 16. I'd like to think we'll have the fitness that we could go full-risk."

Bayern could all but seal the Bundesliga-Herbstmeisterschaft, the unofficial title for the best club at the end of the year, with three points at Frankfurt.

And Heynckes said: "The league's our core business."

The coach will have all players available for the trip, with Kingsley Coman set to resume full training after picking up a knock against PSG.
