A young PSV Eindhoven team showed great maturity to come from behind and record a well-deserved draw against AC Milan in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off.

The Eredivisie leaders dominated the opening 45 minutes, hitting the woodwork and forcing Christian Abbiati into several crucial saves. Yet the only goal of the half came at the other end courtesy of a well-placed Stephan El Shaarawy header. Tim Matavž restored parity on the hour to leave the contest wide open ahead of the return next Wednesday.

Minute By Minute

    The final whistle is blown.
    An entertaining match comes to a close in Eindhoven. PSV were full of energy in the first half, and tested Milan throughout. Tim Matavž's second half equaliser for PSV cancelled out Stephan El Shaarawy's first half header, but the Italians have the slight advantage going into the second leg due to their away goal.
