Eleven years after the most famous 1-1 draw in these clubs' histories, the 2001 UEFA Champions League final, Valencia CF and FC Bayern München repeated the result to ensure the visitors progressed with their hosts.

Valencia's place in the round of 16 had been sealed before kick-off after FC BATE Borisov lost at home to LOSC Lille. Bayern needed a point to join them and remain top of Group F and, although they fell behind to Sofiane Feghouli's late strike, Thomas Müller swiftly levelled against a side reduced to ten men following Antonio Barragán's first-half red card in an intense and exciting contest.

Reaction

It was a fantastic performance from us. Although we wanted to win for our fans, we will leave here satisfied. We still want to finish first in the group so winning our last match is vital.

We played against ten men for a long time, but often took the wrong decisions. In the end, we were lucky to get a draw.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Howard Webb brings an enthralling match to an end at the Estadi de Mestalla. Sofiane Feghouli looked to have given Valencia a famous victory on home soil, only for Thomas Müller to equalise five minutes later. A draw was a fair result, however, and ensures that both sides reach the last 16.

    T. Müller (Bayern) scores!
    Just five minutes after going behind, Bayern are level. A cross from Philipp Lahm is brilliantly cushioned by Mario Gomez, allowing Thomas Müller to sweep a right-footed shot into the far corner of Vicente Guaita's goal. A well-worked effort from Jupp Heynckes's side.
