Carlo Ancelotti warned his Bayern Munich side they will lose to Paris St Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday if they do not up their game.

The Italian criticised his players after they let slip a 2-0 half-time lead to draw 2-2 at home to Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday night.

Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben had the hosts in control, but back-up goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, standing in for the injured Manuel Neuer, made an awful mistake in letting in a Maximilian Arnold free-kick before Daniel Didavi's late winner.

Ancelotti said on the Bayern website: "We didn't play like we wanted to. We were slow, lacking intensity, not compact enough. We didn't have the game under control like we usually do. That is why the game went like this.

"Sven made a mistake, but the result came from the fact we didn't play well as a team.

"In Paris we have to play differently."

Thomas Muller said Wolfsburg did not earn the draw, but rather Bayern "gave them the point gift-wrapped".

He added: "We had two or three super chances in the second half, which we had to score. At the back we twice made it easy for Wolfsburg."
