Barcelona is in the Final

Share |

In one of the most expected derbies, FC Barcelona tied 0-0 with AC Milan yesterday to reach the Champions League final 1-0 on aggregate.

Now Ronaldinho and his team will play Arsenal at the Stade de France in Paris May 17 thanks to their 1-0 vicotry in the first leg of the semifinals with Ludovic Giuly's goal at the San Siro last week.

Milan keeper Dida made two saves to deny Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o in the first half, and stopped a header from substitute forward Henrik Larsson after halftime.

It's important to say that Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko had a goal disallowed in the 69th minute for a foul on Barcelona captain and defender Carles Puyol in front of a 95,000 fans crowd in Camp Nou stadium.

Barcelona were playing in their 100th Champions League match, and almost scored two minutes later -- but Dida dived to block a shot from Eto'o.

AC Milan's best opportunity came when Schevchenko hit the side-netting in the 23rd minute.
