The Blaugrana midfielder was none too pleased with the Blues’ attitude at the Camp Nou.

Andres Iniesta and his high-flying Barcelona team-mates were kept at bay by a stubborn and disciplined Chelsea side who walked out of the Camp Nou with a precious 0-0 draw in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals.

The versatile Barca midfielder was frustrated time and again by Guus Hiddink’s water-tight strategy and although it did not impress Iniesta one bit, he remains optimistic of getting a result at Stamford Bridge next week.

“We tried to play our football. All the while, we tried to attack and score a goal, but when the team in front of you do not want to play football, it becomes complicated,” he said in his post-match interview with Cadena COPE.

“The tie will now have to be settled in London. We will go there with a lot of motivation to score and to win. We hope that justice will be done and we can be in the final.”

Barcelona will have another daunting task at the weekend when they travel to the Spanish capital to take on arch rivals Real Madrid in a decisive title battle. Chelsea, meanwhile, will host Fulham before welcoming the Catalans to the Bridge next Wednesday.
