Barcelona Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Branislav Ivanovic Misses Potential Winner

Chelsea are going to be light on chances in the second half against Barcelona, so they should probably make the most of the ones they have. In the 64th minute, Branislav Ivanovic had one of those chances and managed to do very little with it. He could have been a hero, but now he is not. Oops!

On a corner kick (10-man Chelsea won a corner!), Chelsea put just three men in the box. The ball still somehow fell to the head of Ivanovic, who had a wide-open header, but missed it so badly that he hit his own shoulder. Victor Valdés was way out of position, so anything on target probably would have been a goal.

Sidenote: How bad is Victor Valdés right now? Unbelievable.
