UEFA Champions League - Matchday 2

September 28, 2006

FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi (in the picture) on his way to leveling the score against Werder Bremen during their Group A Champions League match in Bremen on Wednesday.

It was not a happy night for Barca, who trailed to a 56th minute own goal by captain Carles Puyol and then lost Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o to a knee injury in a game where Werder had the upper hand.

Argentina teenager Messi spared the European champions' blushes a minute from time, working a one-two with Deco before threading the ball past goalkeeper Tim Wiese.

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard said: "We fought hard and right up to the end and managed to come away with a good was deserved."
