Barcelona striker Luis Suarez on Chelsea draw: Not a bad result. The ref?

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez insists they cannot be disappointed after last night's 1-1 draw at Chelsea.

Barca will host the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 clash in a strong position.

Suarez said: "It's not a bad result, knowing that they have to score at home and look for the goal, it will be beneficial for us because we will have more space, what we have to do is be strong at home, it's important that we score and that's our target."

The striker was denied a penalty - and booked for his protests.

"It upsets me when I try to seek an explanation, but the criteria of the referees is not the same. We have to keep pushing to steal the ball in these occasions and that's where the play has come from. The same for the goal (scored by Lionel Messi)."
