Iniesta celebrating after scoring in the 93rd minute to send Barcelona to the Champion's League final.

It took 3 minutes of extra time for Barcelona to finally find the key to the lock that was Chelsea’s defense. Iniesta’s beautiful strike at ’90 + 3 booked Barcelona a ticket to Rome for the Champions League final on May 27th.

 

What an incredible game, with an even better finish. Considering the 1st leg went without a goal, it took Barca 183 minutes to finally solve Chelsea. Chelsea struck early at Stanford Bridge, scoring in the 9th minute off the foot of Essien. Chelsea then did what they do best for 84 minutes, defend. It looked like it would be an all England final, till Iniesta broke Chelsea’s hearts in extra time.

It was an absolute bullet of a shot just outside the box on a pass from the great Messi. It was Unexpected, Unconciounable, Unbelievable.

Barca is off to Rome to face Manchester United, in a rematch of last years Champion Leagues semi-final, in which Man U were victorious. Barca should have a much better showing against Man U this year; coming off today’s sublime finish.
