Chelsea snatch first-leg win over Barcelona


Didier Drogba gave Chelsea a smash-and-grab 1-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at Stamford Bridge.

The victory goes some way to helping banish the memories of Chelsea’s controversial semi-final exit to the Catalans in 2009, this edition’s referee Felix Brych far more capable in his handling of gamesmanship from both sides than poor Tom Henning Ovrebo, whose reputation took a pounding after failing to award the West London side any of four penalty appeals in that match.
