Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta insists that Chelsea were 'lucky' to defeat the Spanish club in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final encounter last Wednesday.

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has insisted that Chelsea were 'lucky' to secure a 1-0 win in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final last Wednesday.

The Spanish club dominated possession in last week's encounter, but lost out to a strike from Didier Drogba.

"We were the superior team at Stamford Bridge. I don't think the luck will be with Chelsea in the second leg. I think if you judge the game on its merits, then we deserve to reach the final in Munich," Iniesta told reporters.

Chelsea travel to the Nou Camp in the second leg on Tuesday evening.
