[VIDEO PICK]Didier Drogba's goal two minutes into first-half stoppage time was the difference as Chelsea edged Barcelona in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League series. The goal came shortly after Lionel Messi was hurt. On the play leading to the goal, Messi was stripped of the goal, setting off a Chelsea counterattack that ended with Drogba's goal. Alexis Sanchez and Pedro both hit the woodwork for Barcelona.
Trivia.Messi has yet to score in seven games against Chelsea.
Chelsea Reaction."I am very pleased with this result but it is only halftime. Nothing has been decided yet and we need to play another game like this one if we are going to get through. You know what to expect when you play in the Nou Camp. It is going to be very difficult and we still have to believe we might get a goal out there." -- Coach Roberto di Matteo.
Barcelona Reaction. "I would say the favorites are now Chelsea because winning 1-0 at home is a very good result for them." -- Coach Pep Guardiola.
The second leg.Tuesday April 24 in Barcelona.
