AC Milan reached the last 16 despite being held to a 1-1 draw by a spirited BATE Borisov after first half domination evaporated into a struggle to claim a point.

Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic gives Milan the lead in the 22nd minute after taking the ball off a defender, giving it to striker Robinho and then calmly slotting in the return pass with the home defence nowhere nearby.

BATE improved markedly after the break and equalised in the 55th when Brazilian Renan Bressan converted a penalty after defender Ignazio Abate barges down Artyom Kontsevoi. Milan, now second in the group with eight points, cannot be caught by the bottom-placed Czech side or BATE. They have a better head-to-head record over the Belarussians who are in third place on two points with two games to play.
