Chelsea through to quarters after draw with Juventus

Chelsea have snuck through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after a 2-2 draw (3-2 on aggregate) result against Juventus.

The Blues took a 1-0 lead into the tie in Turin but it was quickly cut down as Vincenzo Iaquinta got the Old Lady off to a great start in the second leg by netting in the 19th minute.

The return to form of Michael Essien was a great sight for Chelsea fans and he had them in raptures when he scored a crucial away goal on the stroke of half-time to give the visitors the ascendency going into the main break.

The game then seesawed when veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero converted a penalty in the 74th minute to restore hope for Juventus but a late Didier Drogba goal ended the home side's night and gave Guus Hiddink's men another chance in the competition.
