Didier Drogba is still yelling at the referee, but my attention has already turned to Rome. Buy Champions League Final Tickets
Iniesta’s dramatic strike means that Barcelona are into the Champions League final, where the is whether Barcelona can prevent Manchester United FC becoming the first team in 19 years to retain the trophy?
The Liga leaders never got going in the two legs against Chelsea and they face the European Champions at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico on 27 May.
Both teams will be without key players in the final through suspension. Darren Fletcher will be missing for United, while Eric Abidal also collected a second-leg red card and is banned, as is Barça’s usual right-back, Daniel Alves, following his third yellow card of this season’s competition in London. How will Barca cope without both their starting fullbacks? Also missing for Barca will be center half Rafael Márquez.
Whose absence will be most keenly felt? What must Barcelona do to stop United becoming the first side to successfully defend the European Champion Clubs’ Cup since AC Milan in 1990? Who will shine most on the big stage Messi or Ronaldo?
Who do you think will lift the trophy – and why?
