thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com takes a look at what the football world thought of the Blues' semi-final triumph over Pep Guardiola's men as they recorded their feelings throughout the game on Twitter

Chelsea stunned Camp Nou on Tuesday night after proving last week's rearguard display was no fluke as it dumped Barcelona out of the Champions League and booked its place in the final at the Allianz Arena on May 19.

The story of the game was captain John Terry's sending off after just 37 minutes, but the Blues stood tall and fought back from two goals down to draw level through a superb chip by Ramires and a last-gasp Fernando Torres strike to send the team through 3-2 on aggregate.

From Ruud Gullit to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the football world were seemingly glued to action as Roberto Di Matteo's side battled against the odds and Goal.com is on hand to take a look at just who was saying what as Twitter went into overdrive...
