    (Aggregate: Barcelona 2-3 Chelsea) Chelsea book their place in the UEFA Champions League final in Munich on 19 May after a remarkable backs-to-the-wall performance.

  • 77

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Ten-man Chelsea have the slimmest of advantages going into the final quarter of this semi-final clash. It will be a long 45 minutes for the men from London.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    (Aggregate: Barcelona 2-2 Chelsea) Paul Saffer, Camp Nou: What an end to the half - no one saw that superb Chelsea goal coming.

  • Goal
    45+1

    Bosingwa (in) - Cahill (out) (Chelsea)
    The central defender was outstanding last week as Chelsea kept a clean sheet, but a pulled muscle has ended his evening after just 12 minutes. The Portuguese full-back replaces him and Branislav Ivanović will shift into the centre.
