Chelsea defeated at home by Barcelona

On a remarkable night of Champions League comebacks, Barcelona beat 10-man Chelsea 2-1 in London while Werder Bremen scored twice in the last three minutes to beat Juventus 3-2 in their first knockout round first legs.

It's important to notice that what had been billed as the match of the round at Stamford Bridge looked to have been spoiled by a red card for Chelsea full back Asier Del Horno in the 37th minute for a wild lunge at Argentine teenager Lionel Messi.

In fact, Chelsea battled on though and took the lead with a Thiago Motta own goal after an hour.

Another own goal, by Chelsea captain John Terry, levelled the scores 12 minutes later before Samuel Eto'o headed Barcelona's precious winner 10 minutes from time.
