Bayern Munich came from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Lyon in Group F of the Champions League, while Fiorentina were frustrated by Steaua Bucharest in a goalless draw in Florence.

Bayern Munich 1-1 Lyon

The visitors took a fortuitous lead on 25 minutes when a long-range Juninho free-kick was inadvertently flicked past Bayern keeper Michael Rensing by team-mate Martin Demichelis.

Seven minutes into the second half Bayern equalised through an unlikely source - a header by diminutive Brazilian midfielder Ze Roberto.

Massimo Oddo cleverly found Miroslav Klose on the right wing and Klose crossed first-time for the veteran playmaker to head home past Hugo LLoris.

The German champions controlled the match but a combination of poor finishing by Luca Toni and good saves by Lloris from Ribery and the misfiring Toni kept Lyon in the game.

Frank Ribery also had several good chances, while Oddo turned in a man-of-the-match performance at right back.

Lyon's chances were few and far between, although Rensing saved well from Fred and Anthony Reveillere.

The result puts Bayern top of the group with four points in two matches, while Lyon share second with Fiorentina after a second draw in as many games.

Fiorentina 0-0 Steaua Bucharest

Steaua Bucharest defended strongly to secure a 0-0 draw at Fiorentina for their first point in the Champions League.

The result leaves the Italian team level on two points with Lyon, with the Romanian side bottom after two games.

It was a poor match with many mistakes in midfield and both teams failing to build dangerous attacks, even if Fiorentina dominated for longer periods.

Fiorentina's Romanian striker Adrian Mutu, who was kept on a tight rein for the most part, blazed the first opening over the bar and then a close-range shot from Alberto Gilardino was blocked by Steaua's Colombian goalkeeper Robinson Zapata.

Steaua replied with a quick counter-attack putting striker Antonio Semedo through in a one-on-one situation with keeper Sebastian Frey but the Portuguese missed the target by inches.

Mutu's freekick from distance flew narrowly wide after the break and the striker missed again from a narrow angle minutes later when his header went into the side netting.
