Chelsea stand firm against Benfica to set up Barcelona Champions League revenge mission
And now for Barcelona. But only just. The aggregate result appeared relatively comfortable but this was another instalment in the nerve-jangling, controversy-ridden, last-gasp Champions League football that Chelsea appear to have patented over the years.
They won both legs of this quarter-final tie but that only tells half a story. Having deservedly taken the first leg 1-0 away to Benfica last week, they appeared overcome with nerves and expectation at times on Wednesday night.
