Text size Aa Aa

A ten-man Chelsea knocked out holders Barcelona to reach the final of the Champions league on Tuesday after a two all draw at the Camp Nou in the decisive semi-final second leg put them through 3-2 aggregate winners.

Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta got the hosts off to a blistering start with goals just either side of John Terry’s red card for violent conduct on the 37th minute.

But Cheslea’s Brazilian midfielder Ramieres chipped Victor Valdes on the stroke of half time and Fernando Torres struck in added time to keep the Londoners on track for a first champions league crown.

The final is to be held on 19 May at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena.
