Chelsea draw 2-2 with Juventus

Chelsea twice came from behind at the Olympic Stadium in Turin to draw 2-2 with Juventus and book their place in the quarter-final draw of the Champions League. The Blues went into the second leg 1-0 up on aggregate, but found themselves behind with the tie all square after 20 minutes.

Juventus ripped the Chelsea rearguard to shreds when Italian international Vincenzo Iaquinta played an exquisite one-two with David Trezequet before firing past Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal.

Guus Hiddink's side thought they were back on level terms when Didier Drogba's free-kick appeared to have crossed the line, but there was no doubt about Michael Essien's equaliser. The Ghana midfielder, playing his first game in over six months, hammered home from close range after Buffon had saved well from Lampard.

Veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero gave the Old Lady some hope with a late penalty after Belletti had handled, but Didier Drogba capped off another excellent performance with a goal seven minutes before the end to put the result beyond doubt.
