Barcelona - Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was set to remain in a hospital overnight on Tuesday after being knocked unconscious during the 2-2 Champions League draw against Chelsea on Tuesday.

Pique exited the match at the Camp Nou in the 25th minute, nine minutes after colliding with team-mate Victor Valdes as the pair went to clear a long ball from the chasing Didier Drogba.

Pique laid motionless for some time before eventually getting to his feet and playing. Barcelona said the Spain international suffered a light concussion and was being kept overnight as a precaution after undergoing medical tests.

Defending champion Barcelona failed to reach its third final in four seasons after 10-man Chelsea advanced 3-2 on aggregate.
