Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink was delighted with the way they "neutralised" Lionel Messi during last night's 0-0 draw at Barcelona.
"Messi was rather well neutralised tactically tonight," he said.
"(Jose) Bosingwa did a good job and had some help from (Florent) Malouda on the left side and good support from the centre as well when Messi cut inside.
"It can happen one night that you stop him, but I don't think it will happen twice."
Barca coach Pep Guardiola said of Messi: "He was the victim of extremely tight marking, so it was not easy for him to find space.
"I think he did great given the circumstances."
