Title holders AC Milan qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League after a 1-1 draw with hosts Benfica, who are now eliminated from contention.

Andrea Pirlo gave Milan a 15th-minute lead but only five minutes later Maxi Pereira levelled the match.

Both sides battled in search of a winner but neither side managed to find one although a draw was all that Carlo Ancelotti´s side needed in the end to secure their place in the next phase as they hunt for an eighth success in the continent´s premier club competition.
