All-round satisfaction after Lyon draw

The Bayern camp was generally happy with Tuesday’s 1-1 draw against Olympique Lyon, a result which leaves Munich top of Champions League Group F on four points from two matches. “We have to live with a point although we’d have liked all three, but I think we’ve started well in the Champions League,” summarised coach Jürgen Klinsmann.

“Looking at the standings, today’s draw was as good as a win to us,” said manager Uli Hoeneß in the light of the goalless stalemate between Fiorentina and Steaua Bucharest. “We can live with one-all. Lyon were better and more incisive in the first half, but we took over in the second,” reasoned Miroslav Klose. The Germany striker supplied the assist for Zé Roberto’s 52nd minute equaliser. “Overall, we played well today,” the Brazilian said.
