Chelsea seize the advantage

Updated: April 19, 2012

Didier Drogba dealt Barcelona payback for the past as he kept alive Chelsea’s Champions League dream.

The Ivorian struck his 11th goal of the season to surprise the Spanish kings in Wednesday night’s tense semi-final first-leg.

Chelsea’s win came despite being outplayed by long periods, with Barcelona enjoying 72 percent possession throughout the match to their opponents’ 28.

The Spaniards also had 24 attempts on goal while Chelsea’s only shot on target came in the shape of Drogba’s winner.
