Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler believes their 1-1 draw with Manchester City is a result which suits both parties, such is the strength of Group A.
Making their respective UEFA Champions League debuts, the clubs make up one half of the table widely regarded as the most difficult of the first round.
And Bayern Munich are the early pacesetters having defeated Villarreal on their own turf in the group's other encounter on Wednesday.
Inler was happy with his side's battling performance, though, as they took the lead against the run of play before eventually settling for a point at the Etihad Stadium.
"It was a very important result, City are a very good side," the Switzerland international told Sky Sports, after Aleksandar Kolarov rescued a point for the hosts.
"The first half was tough. In the second we came back in the game and scored one. For both teams it is a good result because for a long time we are not in the Champions League.
"It is a very tough group because all four teams can beat all - it's a great group."
