UEFA Champions League - Matchday 1

September 19, 2007

Chelsea, Rosenborg draw 1-1

Norwegians Rosenborg Trondheim escaped from Stamford Bridge with an unlikely point after battling to a 1-1 draw against a dominant Chelsea in Group B.

Rosenborg arrived with only one win from 19 Champions League matches but went ahead against the run of play after 24 minutes when Finland defender Miika Koppinen (left) got the final touch to an inswinging free kick.

Chelsea, without the injured Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Ricardo Carvalho, had more than 20 scoring chances but converted only one when Andriy Shevchenko headed home a Florent Malouda centre after 53 minutes.

It was his 60th goal in European club competition, taking him within two of Gerd Mueller's all-time record.
