Ten-man Chelsea sends Barca out of CL

Chelsea drew 2-2 with Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Tuesday to move to the finals of the Champions League on a 3-2 aggregate.
Sergio Busquets put Barca ahead in the 35th minute of the game with Barca having control of the match. Two minutes later Chelsea captain John Terry was sent off for an un sportsmanship behavior.  
It seemed as if it was over for Chelsea when Andres Iniesta scored the second goal for Barcelona in the 43rd minute but Chelsea got back in the game with a nice finish from Ramires in first half stoppage time.
Barcelona had the chance to score another goal after they were awarded a penalty but Lionel Messi hit the ball against the crossbar.
Torres came from the bench to get the equalizer for the blues at the stoppage time to ensure that they move on to the final.
However, Chelsea will be playing the finals without some of their key players; Terry, Ramires, Ivanovic and Meireles.


  1. who would have believed this when the draw was made. Never write any team off in football.
