Today marks the first leg of the Champions League semifinals. 

Chelsea and temporary boss Gus Hiddink look to put an end to FC Barcelona's run during this current campaign.  The Spanish giants have been on top form for most of the season and their play in the Champions League has been some of the best they have shown.

That doesn't make things easy for Chelsea—a team that has struggled with consistency but has found better form in the second half of the season. 

I will update here on things I spot during the match once it starts!
