Chelsea have lodged an official complaint with UEFA
Chelsea have lodged an official complaint with UEFA after up to 50 fans were barred from entering the ground until 30 minutes after the start of their Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow at the Lokomotiv Stadium. Supporters were prevented from taking their seats even though they had tickets to watch the match. It is understood CSKA fans without tickets were allowed entry instead and took up their positions in the seats which should have been occupied by the barred supporters, Scotsman reported. According to the Bloomberg, Chelsea defeated CSKA Moscow 1-0 to become the first team to reach the single-elimination round of European soccer's Champions League. CSKA got a penalty kick a minute into the second half when England defender Glen Johnson fouled Yuri Zhirkov in the box. Love, who has scored three goals in this year's elite competition, fired his shot over the bar. Chelsea's owner Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire whose oil company OAO Sibneft has its logo on CSKA's jerseys, watched the game from the stands. UEFA, European soccer's governing body, ruled that the situation didn't present a conflict of interest.
