Chelsea Holds Barca

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, it's been a hard couple weeks here at school.

As many of you know, Chelsea and Barcelona tied 0-0 in Spain today. 

Barcelona had possession of the ball 70 percent of the game, and other than a Didier Drogba chance in the 1st half, Chelsea made no attempt to attack for the entire game.

When I watched this game, I could tell it was going to end 0-0. Every time Barcelona brought the ball up the field, they had to go through 8 to 9 players from the edge of the box. 

After this game I really feel that Barcelona will win. Chelsea can only play in a defensive shell for so long without Barcelona scoring, and I believe if Chelsea does decide to open up and attack they will leave themselves up for a counter attack.

Update: If you guys haven't heard, Barcelona's Rafael Marquez is out for the rest of the season after injuring his knee in the second half of the game.

What do you think?

Here are highlights of today's game:
