Bayern Munich and Bolton Wanderers drew 2-2 today.

Bolton Wanderers opened the scoring after only eight minutes when Ricardo Gardner scored on a deflected shot. After taking 15 minutes to settle in, Bayern Munich started to attack more frequently and it paid dividends after 30 minutes when Lukas Podolski equalized. Early in the 2nd half Bayern Munich took the lead when Podolski got his 2nd goal of the game. However, with 8 minutes left, Bolton equalized which earned Bolton’s 2nd point in the group stage while Bayern lead Group F with 4 points. If Bayern Munich wins their next UEFA Cup match, they are all but assured their place in the next round.

Post-match Quotes

Ottmar Hitzfeld: “The crowd’s basically been treated to a good and exciting game with plenty of chances from our team. We were unlucky to go a goal behind so early, that was exactly what Bolton wanted, because it let them sit back and defend. But we recovered well and piled on the pressure, thanks to the outstanding Ribery. After we went 2-1 up we seemed poised to get a third, we basically had the match totally under control – apparently so much under control that some of my players thought we could relax. Then we went and conceded a totally unnecessary equaliser after a throw-in. That goes down as two points dropped, but I’m still confident we can win the group.“

Oliver Kahn: “We became very careless in the last 20 minutes. We kept on attacking, but we forgot that teams in Europe are capable of scoring at any time. It was carelessness pure and simple, and a lack of total concentration. You can’t afford that in Europe, you have to concentrate right to the end.“

Christian Lell: “Overall, we lacked a cutting edge today. We had plenty of chances before and after the break, but we simply didn’t make the most of them. Then we went to sleep for a moment. But we’ve got to turn our attention to the future, we’re in action again the day after next. We need to come away with something from Stuttgart.“

Gary Megson (Bolton): “We were missing twelve players tonight, but we still showed Bayern very little respect. But I have to say they’ve got world-class players all over the field, and they’re a really strong side. We didn’t have as many chances as our opponents, but we had a couple of good ones, and our application at the end was terrific. I especially want to single out our captain Kevin Nolan, he kept on driving us forward.“

Quotes

Uli Hoeneß: “It was a real fight out there tonight, especially on the unbelievably difficult pitch. Even the referee said he had trouble staying on his feet, so it was very tough and definitely a lottery. It was good to see the team coming from behind twice, but obviously it was a little bit lucky at the end. We’d have been happy enough with a draw, but now we’re obviously delighted. We’ve put ourselves in a great position. We need to win our home games, and then we’re home and dry.“

Ottmar Hitzfeld: “You could see we were having huge problems with the turf. We did consider lodging an appeal after we trained on the pitch yesterday. I’m just pleased we’ve basically come out of it in good shape. Today was all about desire. It wasn’t a day for the pretty stuff, all that mattered was battling away. By the end, I’d have been happy enough with a point.“

Miroslav Klose: “I want to praise the team for the way we kept coming back at them. We had to go to the limit, especially when you consider the conditions here. The turf wasn’t exactly perfect, and you feel it in your legs. We need to keep believing in ourselves.“

Toni Kroos: “It was vital to start the group with a win. It was hard work, the pitch was a catastrophe, but I think we made the best of the situation and coped well. We fought hard and put up stiff resistance, and I think we deserved to win at the end.“
