The FC Spartak Moskva coach Vladimir Fedotov was pleased with the mettle shown by his side as they fought back to draw 2-2 against Group B leaders FC Bayern München, and stay in the hunt for UEFA Cup qualification. Opposite number Felix Magath lamented two dropped points, but was nonetheless pleased with the German champions' approach.
Vladimir Fedotov, Spartak coach
I am very satisfied with the quality and the commitment shown by my players today. Don't forget that we were playing against one of the best sides in Europe. The Bayern team can be compared to a Mercedes-Benz, they have a fantastic defence, are sharp on the counterattack and have a lot of classy players. We struggled a little in the first half but we improved after the break and were even on top at times during the second half. Taking a point off Bayern is a good performance and we will now have a chance of qualifying for the UEFA Cup. This is Spartak's first [UEFA] Champions League campaign after a four-year absence and we have gained important experience which will serve us well in the future.
Felix Magath, Bayern coach
We may have earned one point tonight but we've also given away two. I liked the way we played, we adapted very quickly to the artificial pitch and I don't have any complaints about the surface. I feel we should have kept our discipline a little better when we were leading 2-1. We continued playing some expansive football, looking for a third goal but we didn't get it. I am familiar with Spartak from my time as coach of Hamburg and I don't think they have changed much in recent years. They still play good, passing football and try to be creative. They're a solid team and they are mentally quite strong, particularly at home.
