CHAMPIONS LEAGUE : Chelsea beat Barcelona 1-0 (video)

Didier Drogba gives Chelsea a hard-fought 1-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

Barcelona dominated possession (70%) as well as creating a succession of chances (25 shots to 4) - but Drogba struck in first-half injury time to give Chelsea an advantage to protect in Barcelona next Tuesday.

Chelsea were forced into heavy defance during the secoind half in the face of Barcelona's famous passing football, but Drogba converted their one clear chance to reward the outstanding defensive work of Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole and captain John Terry in keeping Lionel Messi and co at bay.
