Lionel Messi, Barcelona Respond To Early Panathinaikos Goal

Barcelona and Greek champions Panathinaikos are drawn at one half-way through the first half at Camp Nou, with Lionel Messi’s 22nd minute goal equalizing an early, surprise tally from Sidney Govou.

The former Lyon attacker blasted a lay-off from Djibril Cisse, giving Pana a 1-0 lead at 20 minutes. Two minutes later, Xavi Hernandez split the Panathinaikos defense, put Messi alone on Alexandros Tzorvas, allowing the Argentine to chip Barcelona even.
