CL - Last 16: Wednesday Review

Chelsea 1-0 JuventusJuventus will have to stage a second leg comeback after they were narrowly beaten 1-0 at Chelsea in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie.

Didier Drogba's early goal gave Chelsea a first leg advantage as last season's runners-up saw off a concerted Juventus fightback. Claudio Ranieri was given a warm reception by the home supporters on his first return. And it was a close-run thing at Stamford Bridge, with the Turin giants pushing the hosts back in the second half as they sought to cancel out Drogba's slick 12th-minute strike. Yet the Bianconeri were unable to prevent a seventh successive away defeat in the Champions League knockout rounds as Chelsea will take the narrowest of advantages to Italy for the second leg on 10 March.
