Valencia ensured their place in the last sixteen without having to kick a ball after third placed BATE Borisov lost 0-2 to Lille in a match brought forward to a 6.00 pm (CET) kick-off. That result converted their tie later in the evening against Bayern Munich in to a decider for first place in group F, the Bundesliga side having the edge over the Ches on the head-to-head record after the game ended 1-1. Dante caused some problems for Guaita and his defence with a couple of early headers, and Feghouli tested Neuer for the first time with half an hour gone. A couple of minutes later though Pelegrino's side were left with ten men after Barragán was sent off for a hard tackle on Alaba, and Guaita had to be at his best to keep out Pizarro before the interval. After the restart Javi Martínez shot wide and Mandzukic hit the post, but Valencia replied with a couple of efforts from Soldado, and with a quarter of an hour to go Feghouli picked the ball up outside of the area and ran on to fire in a shot which deflected in to the net off the hand of Dante. The joy was short-lived though as Bayern equalized within five minutes, Müller finding the net after Mario Gómez played on Lahm's cross. The draw leaves both teams level on points, but the Spaniards can still finish top of the group if they can better Bayern's result on the last day in a fortnight's time.
