Guangzhou Evergrande boss Scolari revels in shock Bayern Munich result

Guangzhou Evergrande manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has spoken of his delight following his side's penalty shootout win over German champions Bayern Munich.

The two sides played out a goalless 90 minutes at the Tianhe Stadium on Thursday, before Guangzhou goalkeeper Zeng Cheng saved Thomas Muller's spot-kick to hand the Chinese outfit a 5-4 win on penalites.

The fixture saw Guangzhou's new signing Robinho makes his debut for the cashed-up Chinese Super League club.

"It is a fantastic game," former Chelsea and Brazil boss Scolari said.

"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."
