Chelsea is out of the Champions League

FC Barcelona qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League yesterday and left Chelsea out of the competition.

Ronaldinho scored in the 78th minute to give host Barcelona a 1-1 tie with Chelsea and put the Spanish league leaders into the final eight 3-2 on aggregate. English midfielder Frank Lampard scored from the penalty spot for Chelsea in injury time.

A pass from Samuel Eto'o started the fantastic 6 second of Ronaldinho, who skipped into the area, barged past Chelsea defender John Terry and drove the ball past diving Petr Cech.

"There's nothing better than winning a game like this one," Ronaldinho would say.

The Barcelona-Chelsea match -- the Spanish champions against the English champions -- was the most awaited match of this season's Champions League. Seldom generous in defeat, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was true to form when asked if the better team had won.

"I don't think so," Mourinho said. "We played against them four matches in two seasons, and 11 against 11 they never beat us. That's the reality."
