Chelsea (in white) is down 2-1 to world class Barcelona. To go forward (over Chelsea) in the Champions League Cup Finals, Barco had to win by two goals. Because of a red card, Chelsea had been playing a man short for the last 53 minutes of regulation time. Chelsea circled their wagons and only attained 18% or so possession. Barco players fit themselves like a glove around Chelsea's goal, firing shot after shot. A couple hit the cross bars. In the last minute, Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole lofted a clearing ball toward the midfield line, which seemed momentarily inconsequential. Until everyone noticed substitute striker Fernando Torres was lurking there. un-marked.
The rest is history. Barcelona goes home. Chelsea goes forward to the finals.
