Iniesta sneaks Barca win

Published Add your comment

Chelsea suffered Champions League heartbreak after Andres Iniesta's stunning late leveller sent Barcelona through on away goals.

Michael Essien's opener looked like giving Guus Hiddink's men a path to the final in Rome to face Manchester United - and they had chances and huge penalty appeals turned down in search of the second goal that would have settled the last-four clash.

The Spanish giants had Eric Abidal sent off but stayed within touching distance of Chelsea, then Iniesta found the top corner to spark manic celebrations.
