Another EPL side faces a cold winter

Chelsea is the next on the list to take a tumble in Champions League Play as they fall to Napoli 3-1 and now have their work cut out for them when the sides return to Stamford Bridge on March 14th. Unfortunately for the Blues they will have to do it without the services of Captain Fantastic, as John Terry will be sidelined for two months. This will put added pressure on the already tested Chelsea defenders who will need to pitch a shutout due the lone away goal Chelsea was able to put up on the board.

Extra Time proves to be costly for Real –
To say that the home side pushed the favorites to the limit would be an understatement as CSKA Moskva in a frozen Russian Tundra needed all of regular time and then an additional 3 minutes of stoppage to finally equalize with the Spanish side, thus keeping their unbeaten string intact. It may not have been pretty and it certainly will be up for some discussion but now the Spaniards had better bring their A-Game to the second leg and take care of business at home. Moreover, keep the Russians out of the onion bag early, or watch how tight that noose will get if they give up an early goal and must put two on the board.
