Latest update : 2011-09-13

A dominant Barcelona FC appeared to be cruising towards victory when AC Milan defender Thiago Silva managed a 92nd-minute header, bringing the result of the group H opener match between the two heavyweights to a 2-2 draw.

REUTERS - Thiago Silva powered home a header in the second minute of stoppage time to snatch a 2-2 draw for AC Milan at holders Barcelona in the heavyweight pair's Group H opener on Tuesday.

A sultry Nou Camp was stunned into near-silence after only 24 seconds when Alexandre Pato left the Barca defence for dead and beat goalkeeper Victor Valdes, the fifth-fastest goal in Europe's elite club competition, according to Opta.

However, World Player of the Year Lionel Messi, Champions League top scorer the past three seasons, created an equaliser for Pedro in the 36th minute with a brilliant weaving run and cross and David Villa netted a superb long-range freekick five minutes after the break.

A dominant Barca were apparently cruising towards victory when Brazil defender Silva leaped above the home defence and crashed a 92nd-minute header past Valdes.
