[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]  Inter Milan defeated Chelsea, 2-1, in the first leg of their round-of-16 series in the UEFA Champions League. The win was sweet for Inter coach Jose Mourinho in his first competitive game against Chelsea since leaving the Blues in 2007, but the margin gives the Italian champions little room for comfort going into the second leg March 16 in London.

“I have to control my emotions and be professional, like I was today,” Mourinho said of the trip to Stamford Bridge. “In the tunnel, it was not a normal game for me and nor was it a normal game for them. At Stamford Bridge, I think people will be pleased to have me back because we had such a good time -- but I will go to a different locker room and a different bench.”

A pair of Argentines -- Diego Milito and Esteban Cambiasso -- scored both goals for Inter. Cambiasso's winner came three minutes after Salomon Kalou tied the score.
 
In Wednesday's other Champions League game, underdog CSKA Moscow held Spain's Sevilla to a 1-1 tie at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Chilean Mark Gonzalez scored from 30 yards with a left-footed shot in the 66th minute to earn CSKA the tie.

Alvaro Negredo scored for Sevilla in the 25th minute.
