LONDON—Lionel Messi scored his
first goal against Chelsea in his
ninth attempt to salvage a 1-1 draw
for Barcelona in the Champions
League last-16 yesterday.
The forward’s longest goal
drought against any opponent
ended after 730 minutes when
Chelsea was made to pay for a
rare slip in concentration after
successfully containing the Span-
ish club’s threat.
Andreas Christensen passed
laxly across his own penalty area
and Andres Iniesta beat Cesar Az-
pilicueta to the ball, skipped past
the defender’s attempt to tackle
and squared for the unmarked
Messi to turn into the bottom of
the net in the 75th minute.
It prevented Barcelona from
slipping to only its second loss
in all competitions since August,
and secured a valuable away goal
to take back to the Camp Nou on
Chelsea had taken the lead
13 minutes earlier. Willian, who
drifts in and out of the team, fired
Chelsea in front after hitting the
woodwork twice in the first half.

MUNICH—Thomas Mueller and
Robert Lewandowski both scored
twice as Bayern Munich defeated
10-man Besiktas 5-0 yesterday
to all but secure progress to the
Champions League quarterfinals
for the seventh straight season.
Mueller opened the scoring
from close range in the 43rd min-
ute after Domagoj Vida was sent
off early for bringing down Le-
wandowski as the last defender.
Kingsley Coman doubled the lead
eight minutes after the break and
Mueller grabbed his second mid-
way through the second half.
Lewandowski polished off the
win with two late goals to give
Bayern a seemingly insurmount-
able five-goal cushion ahead of
