The Chelsea-Barcelona matchup lived up to the pre-match hype. Earlier in the match ,Barcelona made it difficult for Chelsea to escape their own third, in the early minutes of the first half the bridge boys tried to keep a clean slate and Chelsea did break free towards the end and gave Barca some scares with Willian hitting both side of the goalposts.It was pathetic as many Chelsea fans were seriously apprehensive that they may rue the missed chances.Willian finally gave Chelsea the lead when he neatly hit a low shot from outside the box to beat the Barcelona goal tender.

Chelsea had a few chances to double that lead after that but could not capitalise on them. Finally, the lead was negated when Andres Iniesta set up Lionel Messi brilliantly and the Argentine ended his dubious goal duck against Chelsea. Barcelona have the away goal advantage and a very difficult second leg awaits Chelsea at the Nou Camp.
