Reigning champions Barcelona confirmed top spot in Champions League Group H with an exciting 3-2 victory over already-qualified AC Milan at the San Siro.

Mark van Bommel's early own goal was cancelled out by Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic before a Lionel Messi penalty put Barca up at the break. Kevin Prince Boateng equalised a second time before Xavi struck a 63rd-minute winner for the visitors.

In the other game in Group H, Viktoria Plzen claimed their first win of the group stages 1-0 over BATE Borisov in Minsk. Marek Bakos netted in the 42nd minute to put the Czech side in pole position to seal a Europa League slot.
