NOTHING TO FEAR:Chelsea FC 1-0 FC Barcelona
In the second half, Chelsea did everything they could to hold off an attacking Barcelona. They did it well and had great patience. They also tried to counterattack when they could but did not have many quality chances in the second half. In the last minute, Pedro hit the post and Busquets missed what seemed to be a pretty wide open goal shortly after.
The result makes the second game mighty interesting. Even though no one was really unhappy with the result Chelsea was more positive about the result with 38, 039 in attendance at the game at Stamford Bridge.
