Leo Messi Shows His Human Side As Barcelona Exit From Champions League
Have we seen the end of the Barcelona domination? Ten men Chelsea shock the soccer world as they eliminate defending champions, Barcelona and advance to the Champions League finals. With a spirited performance filled of Hollywood like tales, the London side scored at the end of the first half on a cheeky finish by Brazilian, Ramires and late in the second half when the unlikely hero of the game, Fernando Torres rounded the Barcelona keeper and put Roberto Di Matteo’s side through to the Champions League Final.
Goals from Busquets and Iniesta gave the lead early on to the Catalonian giants, but golden boy, Leo Messi’s missed penalty and faillure to convert a 20 yard attempt proved to be too costly for the defending Champions. Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona have now suffered their third consecutive defeats. Those results have now left them out of Spanish title race and the Champions League. Is the Barcelona Tiki-Taka being exposed?…
Chelsea awaits the winner of tomorrow’s much anticipated second leg semi-final between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. Bayern won the first leg in Munich in dramatic fashion 2-1. Mario Gomez’ 90th minute heroic finish at the Allianz Arena gave the German side the advantage in the series and the first lost in the competition for Jose Morinho’s team.
