Valencia coach Mauricio Pellegrino praised his side's intelligent play after seeing them qualify for the next round of the Champions League thanks to a 1-1 draw with last year's runners up Bayern Munich.

How the red card to Barragán changed the game: "There were obviously two games, the one before the red card and the one after. It was a great game for us but at the end we couldn't hold on for the win. They made us suffer because they have a lot of quality but we played intelligently and proved you still have a chance to win even with ten men and made chances and then scored. It's a shame we couldn't hold on."

The noise made by Valencia fans: "We saw that the team gave their all, and the fans responded. That's what we want to see. The fans were grateful that the players gave everything on the pitch."

Flooding the midfield: "They played with three central midfielders and our aim was to prevent them from having the ball as little as possible. Bayern are used to having the ball a lot and we thought if they had the ball a lot they'd cause us damage."

The last game, against Lyon: "The most important thing is we do our job of winning our final game. We almost won the game but we have to win our final match and see how we finish in the group."
