VALENCIA, Spain (AFP) - Bayern Munich needed a late Thomas Mueller goal to come from behind and seal a 1-1 draw at ten-man Valencia on Tuesday which put both teams in the Champions League's knock-out phase.

After Lille's 2-0 win at BATE Borisov in Belarus earlier, both teams are now guaranteed passage into the knock-out phase and are level on 10 points at the top of Group F after the draw at Estadi de Mestalla.

With BATE third in the group on six points, neither team can now be denied a place in the last 16.

Midfielder Sofiane Feghouli had put Valencia ahead with time running out, but Bayern held their nerve as Germany midfielder Mueller netted the equaliser.
