Chelsea secured a superb first-leg goalless draw against free-scoring Barcelona thanks to a dogged defensive display at the Nou Camp.
Barcelona were thwarted time and again by goalkeeper Petr Cech who saved superbly to deny Thierry Henry and Alexander Hleb.
But Chelsea striker Didier Drogba wasted a vital chance in the first half while substitute Bojan Krkic headed over the crossbar from point-blank range for Barca in the final minute.
