Barca books place at Wembley

That’s right after a thrilling display at the Nou Camp last night where the game ended in a 1-1 draw, Barcelona FC go through to the UEFA Champions league final to be played at Wembley stadium on May 28th.

The first leg was marred by a series of fouls, histrionics and post-match claim and counter claim from both clubs. The second leg was played in a more sporting fashion and Real briefly had hope when Marcelo cancelled out Pedro’s goal, but it was only good enough for a 1-1 draw as Barcelona secured safe passage to Wembley.

Real made a bright start, with Cristiano Ronaldo – so frustrated in the first leg – producing a couple of dazzling runs. Barca weathered the early storm and Sergio Busquets should really have put his side ahead after finding space at a corner, but he sent his header straight at Iker Casillas.

Real threw men forward in the final 20 minutes but Barcelona locked the door to secure their passage to London and the biggest cheer of the night was reserved for Eric Abidal who has fought his way back to fitness after having surgery to remove a tumour in his liver.

So, who will be Barcelona’s rivals, Manchester United or Schalke 04? At the moment it looks like Man Utd with two precious away goals but who knows what will happen in tonight’s game at Old Trafford. We will see.
