Málaga CF completed their debut UEFA Champions League group stage campaign unbeaten after a 2-2 home draw with an often excellent RSC Anderlecht side.
Two top-class Duda goals looked to have sealed victory for the already anointed Group C winners but Milan Jovanović and Dieudonné Mbokani replied with second-half strikes which rewarded the Belgian champions' invention and ambition. Yet with goalkeeper Carlos Kameni impressing, the Spanish club kept Anderlecht, who finished fourth in the section and missed out on the UEFA Europa League, at bay.
We have done a great job and we are happy. The final goal was a shame, but the important thing was getting more points. Now we can think about the next league match.
Duda, Málaga midfielder
We have played against a great team. We knew that it would be tough, but we wanted to complete a good UEFA Champions League. Málaga have great players and tonight they showed it.
Lucas Biglia, Anderlecht midfielder
