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.

    After his PENALTY miss, MESSI should be admitted to an ASYLUM too. Barcelona finally got "worked out". Their 'pinball machine'style of possession play was shut down by a very resolute 10 Men & Gary Cahill-less Chelsea. Let us not forget how much "NERVE was HELD" by Fernando Torres to score the death nail goal. The world were on the edge of their seats hoping and praying he DOES SCORE... and DID. Well played Chelsea, and well deserved.... Nobody will remember the 70% possession of Barca. What is better than 11 Barcelona Players ? 10 Chelsea Players... I Rest My Case
