Barcelona Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Sergio Busquets Scores, Levels Tie

It took over two hours, but Barcelona have finally scored a goal against Chelsea in their UEFA Champions League semifinal tie. It came from an unlikely source, defensive midfielder Sergio Busquets following a corner kick, but they all count the same. The tie is locked up at 1-1, even on away goals, thanks to his 33rd minute strike.

Xavi's corner kick appeared to be a harmless one and was easily cleared away, but Chelsea appeared to think that their job was done when the ball was cleared away. Barcelona kept working and eventually created an easy opportunity. Dani Alves passed out wide to Isaac Cuenca after collecting the clearance, and he put a great low ball into the box. It went through everyone and found Busquets, who had an uncontested tap-in from six yards to put Barca in front on the night.
