Marco Pinato's 88th-minute intervention earned AC Milan a 1-1 draw at Celtic FC and sent the Rossoneri through to the UEFA Youth League's last 16, as AFC Ajax failed to beat Group H winners FC Barcelona.
The Italian team were moments from leaving Livingston empty-handed. Celtic defender Conor McManus had volleyed spectacularly over Lorenzo Andrenacci from the halfway line six minutes into the second period, after the visiting keeper had cleared an attack.
