Ten-man Inter Milan put in an impressive defensive display to knock holders Barcelona out of the Champions League and reach their first-ever final, despite losing 1-0 in the Nou Camp.

Gerard Pique scored with six minutes remaining to give Pep Guardiola's men hope, but Inter held out to progress to the Madrid showpiece 3-2 on aggregate.

Jose Mourinho's men were forced to play with 10 men for more than two thirds of the game when Thiago Motta was dismissed for clashing with Serio Busquets after 28 minutes.
