Barca into Champions League final

6:08 am on 6 May 2011

Barcelona have reached the Champions League football final for the second time in three years when a 1-1 draw at home to Spanish rivals Real Madrid in their semi-final second leg sent the 2009 winners through 3-1 on aggregate.

Barca led through Pedro's 54th minute strike at a rain-lashed Nou Camp before Marcelo equalised 10 minutes later but Real's challenge petered out.
