Substitute Mario Mandžukić scored the only goal as FC Bayern München defeated a valiant FC Viktoria Plzeň to move into the knockout stages with a record-equalling ninth successive UEFA Champions League win.

Hitherto irresistible in Group D, their 5-0 victory in the reverse fixture included, the holders had been expected to march triumphantly into the last 16. Instead, Josep Guardiola's men were frustrated by Plzeň's endeavour as much as their own uncharacteristic shortcomings in the final third until Mandžukić headed in after 65 minutes.

Match in 5

  • Bayern into knockout stages
  • Bayern's ninth straight UEFA Champions League win equals record
  • Schweinsteiger strikes the post in goalless first half
  • Kozáčik makes string of excellent saves to keep visitors at bay
  • Mandžukić comes off the bench to break deadlock

Reaction

We learned our lesson from the defeat at Bayern. I am pleased we played such a good game against a team I consider to be one of the best in the world.

It is not very easy to qualify for the knockout round after just four matches. We can be proud of this but we still have some room for improvement.
