FC BATE Borisov held on for their first UEFA Champions League group stage home victory as FC Bayern München's dream of a club-record tenth successive win at the start of a season foundered in Group F.
Aleksandr Pavlov struck against the run of play midway through the first half, and while Viktor Goncharenko's side spent plenty of time manning the barricades thereafter, Vitali Rodionov doubled the lead on 78 minutes as the Belarusian team unexpectedly built on their 3-1 win at LOSC Lille on matchday one.
You have to take the lead in games like this. I don't know how much possession we had but their best player was the goalkeeper, which tells you everything.
Jupp Heynckes, Bayern coach
It's a great victory, but we shouldn't get carried away. We know we have to win every match. It's the Champions League and we shouldn't forget it.
Viktor Goncharenko, BATE coach
