UEFA Champions League

Barcelona's Ronaldinho celebrates after scoring against Chelsea during the Champions League second leg knockout match at the Nou Camp in Barcelona, on Tuesday night.

A magical goal from the Brazilian gave Barcelona the lead. The World Footballer of the Year cut through the centre of Chelsea's defence 12 minutes from time, fending off a strong challenge from John Terry, and drove the ball low and hard past Petr Cech.

The English champions saved themselves from defeat on the night when a Frank Lampard penalty with the last kick of the game made the score 1-1 -- but 3-2 for Barcelona on aggregate to advance to the quarter-finals.
