Soccer-Barella rescues Inter with stoppage-time equaliser against Slavia

MILAN, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Substitute Nicolo Barella scored a stoppage-time equaliser for Inter Milan to rescue a dramatic 1-1 draw at home to Slavia Prague in their opening Champions League group game on Tuesday.

The Czech side, beaten on all six previous visits to Italy, took a shock lead through Peter Olayinka in the 63rd minute to stun the San Siro.

Inter were struggling to find a reply until Stefano Sensi smashed a free kick against the crossbar and Barella fired in the rebound in the second minute of stoppage time.

Despite Inter’s relief, they may still come to regret the loss of two home points in a group which also includes Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona. (Writing by Brian Homewood Editing by Toby Davis)
