Are both sentences the same? (we didn't know each other before) It's no coincidence that we met here. It's no coincidence that we ran into rach other here.

Yes, except for that typo :) Also there is a subtle difference between them. "meet" implies you two had planned/pre-arranged When meeting someone for the first time, Fate had done the planning. "Run into" means no planning made (you two already know each other); just a coincidence that you two meet.

They are mostly the same. Met is most often used when you see someone for the first time, and ran into is mostly used when you see someone you already know. Both are technically correct in either situation though. :)
