Di Matteo: Football is a game of goals

watch live sport champions leagueChelsea coach Roberto Di Matteo was extremely happy with his team's victory 1-0 against Barcelona in the first semifinal match of the Champions League.

The Italian said that despite this success over the winner of the trophy revenge will be very difficult and Barcelona remain favorites.

“It’s a great result for us," 

“You know when you play Barcelona, you’re going to have to do a lot of defending. I watched them against all the other teams – Milan, Real Madrid – and they’re going to have a lot of possession."

“You just have to try to limit their threat and then just be clinical when you get your chances. It’s still 50-50. There’s still the second leg to play away from home and, as we all know, it’s going to be a difficult one."

The second leg will be contested at Camp Nou on Tuesday 24.04.2012 at 19:45GMT, with Chelsea set to face Arsenal in between, while Barca comes up against fierce rival Real Madrid,  watch all matches live  at Super Sport Live.
