"It is a fantastic game. Bayern is a strong team, but we have showed our ability through the game and we have a lot of opportunities to break the deadlock. I am satisfied with our performance," said Luiz Felipe Scolari, Evergrande's manager.

Bayern's coach Pep Guardiola made some changes as Mario Gotze, who scored the only goal in last match against Inter Milan, was given a rare start. Evergrande's newcomer Robinho made his debut after joining the Chinese Super League (CSL) defending champion.
