There were precious few scoring opportunities at the Vicente Calderon this evening in a result that leaves everything down to the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

Petr Cech went off with a suspected dislocated shoulder after just 15 minutes, making way for Mark Schwarzer.

The Australian goalkeeper had little to do, but did get down well to turn a Gabi free kick round the base of the post.

Mario Suarez drilled off target from 25 yards and a couple of Diego Costa headers proved dangerous, one charged down in the box and the other whistling wide in stoppages.

John Terry also picked up an ankle injury when teammate David Luiz accidentally stepped on him.

Bookings will rule out Frank Lampard, Gabi and John Obi Mikel from the second leg, but Lampard was fortunate not to receive a second yellow card and a handling offence.
