David Pizarro stole a late deflected equaliser to put Roma back on course for a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League - and hand Manchester United confirmation of their spot.

The Italian side looked to be slipping to a 2-1 loss at the Jose Alvalade Stadium but Pizarro´s long-range strike had a big helping hand on the way through to ensure a draw in the closing seconds.

The late equaliser was also helpful for United who were sent into the next stage by the result.
