It's been an eventful 15 minutes for Chelsea and Barcelona, and that includes the halftime period. Just before the stroke of halftime, Lionel Messi went down and appeared to be injured, and this was followed by a Didier Drogba goal to close the first half. Over the halftime break, everyone wondered whether or not Messi would return to the pitch after this happened to him.
Messi came out of the tunnel and is playing for Barcelona to start the second half. In this second half, the kind of thing that happened to Messi might happen to more people. As if the gods watch football and felt like making things a bit more dramatic, the rain picked up considerably during the break. It's now pouring at Stamford Bridge.
