Ze Roberto's second half goal earned Bayern Munich a 1-1 draw against French giants Lyon to keep Jurgen Klinsmann's side top of Group F in the Champions League.
Lyon went ahead when Bayern's Argentina international Martin Demichelis headed in Brazilian playmaker Juninho's long range freekick for a 25th minute own goal.
That was the last thing Klinsmann's team needed after two successive losses in the Bundesliga but their blushes were saved in the 52nd minute.
Miroslav Klose crossed from the right for the Brazilian to head in with Lyon keeper Hugo Lloris unable to keep the ball out despite getting a hand to it.
“I think it's a good result,” reflected Lyon's Juninho on France's TF1 television station.
“Any regrets? Yes and no because we played against a side that put up a super second half performance, while I reckon we were better in the first.”
The stalemate at the Allianz Arena lifted leaders Bayern on to four points after their opening win over Steaua Bucharest, who drew with Fiorentina on Tuesday.
Lyon are lying in third on two points.
