Rossi scored an equalizing goal from the penalty spot Wednesday to give Villarreal a 1-1 draw with Panathinaikos in the first knockout round of the Champions League.

Robert Pires was taken down by midfielder Jakub Wawrzyniak in the 66th minute and Rossi, an American-born Italian, converted the penalty.

Giorgos Karagounis had given the Greek team the lead in the 59th, sending a shot from 25 meters (yards) that tipped off the hand of Villarreal goalkeeper Diego Lopez before bouncing into the net off the crossbar.

Panathinaikos still leaves Spain with the advantage of an away goal heading into the second leg in Athens on March 10.

“We got what we wanted: An away goal and we didn’t lose,” Panathinaikos coach Henk ten Cate said. “They were tough but we had determination and team spirit that was fantastic and a big compliment to the players.”
