2. After Newcastle versus Portsmouth and now this, I think I have forgotten what a goal looks like. Let’s hope Manchester United and/or Arsenal are in clinical mood tomorrow.
3. Guus Hiddink’s mystery daydream goalscoring hero must have been Juliano Belletti. That is the only reason I can think of for his appearance in place of Frank Lampard.
4. Chelsea would definitely have taken that before kick-off. They have a very long way to go, and Barca are more than capable of scoring at Stamford Bridge, but they have given themselves a very clear target: win the second leg.
5. That second half string of injuries got a bit tiresome. Although I actually thought Thierry Henry was in serious trouble for a while what with the physio checking his pulse and all! Turned out he got off lightly compared to Rafa Marquez.
