Juventus, Defeated by Chelsea Who Makes it to Champions League Quarter Finals

Chelsea secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League despite a great challenge from Juventus, with a 2-2 score (agg 2-3). The hosts dominated from the start and went ahead when David Trezeguet played in Vincenzo Iaquinta to clip home. Chelsea thought Didier Drogba's free-kick had gone over the line, before Michael Essien bundled in from a yard. Juve had Giorgio Chiellini sent off but Alessandro del Piero scored with a penalty kick after Juliano Belletti was called for a handball before Drogba's strike in the 83rd minute settled it.

Videos of the goals of the football match can be viewed below.

1-0 Vincenzo Iaquinta 19"

1-1 Michael Essien 45"

2-1 Alessandro del Piero 74" (penalty)

2-2 Didier Drogba 83"
