But we have an away goal Hema Kanani gives her view on last night’s Champions League encounter at the San Siro against Inter Milan.What a match, the probably the best one I have seen all season!Chelsea got off to a sluggish start and Inter capitalised within three minutes.Poor, schoolboy defending by Chelsea, inn particular John Terry allowed Milito to move inside and unleash a wicked drive pass Petr Cech beating him at his near post from just inside the Chelsea penalty area.Inter’s attacking trident was a worry for the back line in the early exchanges.Chelsea found it difficult to get into their stride until they got a free kick at the edgeof the home side’s box. Drogba took the free kick, the ball cleared the wall and rattled the crossbar with Julio Cesar clearly beaten. The rest of the first half saw Chelsea and Inter exchanging attacks.Towards the end of the first half and Chelsea were denied a clear penalty when a slick Chelsea move released Salomon Kalou.The Ivory Coast striker zipped past Maicon with a clear run on goal.But the Brazilian full-back player brought him down. Must to the fury of the Chelsea players the referee and linesman ignored their pleas.Had the decision gone Chelsea’s way it would have changed the game.Chelsea started off the second half strongly and Branislav Ivanovic set up Kalou on the edge of the box, he calmly slotted the ball past a sluggish Julio Cesar who is recovering fromhis recent car accident to level the tie.But within five minutes Inter had restored their lead.Wesley Sneijder made it to the byline and crossed the ball back for Cambiasso to let fly at goal. The ball rebounded back to him and he hit a pinpoint perfecto shot into the bottom corner of the net. Petr Cech had no chance of saving that ball.For the remainder of the match the teams were evenly matched.Chelsea almost got level when a slick passing move saw Frank Lampard kick the ball,straight at the Inter keeper. Drogba was frustrated by Lucio for most of the night who had a great game at the heart of the Inter defence. To cap a poor result for the Blues Petr Cech was carried off with a suspected calf injuryChelsea have a precious away goal which may be the deciding factor in their tow-legged tie.The decisive leg at the Bridge in in three weeks time.
