Barcelona Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Fernando Torres Scores To Clinch Chelsea Win

UPDATE: Barcelona 2-2 Chelsea, Final Score

Chelsea are going to the Champions League final and it was Fernando Torres (FERNANDO TORRES!) who clinched their spot there. The Spaniard came off of the bench and scored in the 90th minute to put the Blues up 3-2 on aggregate and end Barcelona's Champions League dream. Oh, and Torres' goal came after Chelsea played more than 50 minutes with 10 men. It's been that crazy.

With the tie even on aggregate at 2-2 but Chelsea set to go through on away goals, Barcelona were pressing for a goal. Because all of their men were forward, when the ball was cleared Torres was able to latch onto it with no defenders near him. He rounded Victor Valdés and Chelsea were through.

Of all players, it was Torres. And he did it at the Camp Nou. And it came with Chelsea down to 10 men. Nothing in this match makes any sense, but the Blues don't care. Munich is waiting for them.
