FULL-TIME: Barcelona 2-2 Chelsea (Agg 2-3)

CHELSEA GOAL: Who writes these scripts? Fernando Torres, that supposed £50 million waste of space brought in from Liverpool 15 months ago, races through one-on-one with Victor Valdes, rounds the keeper and slots home to put Chelsea through to the Champions League final. My goodness gracious me.

Carles Puyol heads over for Barcelona from a corner. THREE minutes added on at Camp Nou...

21:32 BST

Just two minutes remaining at Camp Nou, where Lionel Messi has given the ball away for the second time in a matter of minutes - no, really. Raul Meireles then goes into the referee’s book for a silly lunge on Sergio Busquets, which means the midfielder will miss the final if Chelsea reach it. John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Ramires and Meireles could now all be missing from the final... wow.

Ramzi Nasser ‏on Twitter: “Barcelona looks very vulnerable at the back.All what Chelsea needs a good chance and some1 willin to run after the ball to net in”

Mark Fordham reports from Villa Park: “Aston Villa seem to have found their feet again after an incredible couple of minutes of football that saw them take the lead and then go behind. They are doing all the pressing once again and the fans are starting to get anxious.”

Moments after Fernando Torres just about plays Dani Alves offside in the build-up to a Xavi goal that is correctly brought back by the referee, Petr Cech gets a vital touch to Lionel Messi's low, goal-bound effort from 20 yards to palm the ball onto the post. Barcelona are getting closer...

Off goes Didier Drogba, on comes Fernando Torres for Chelsea. The Spaniard scored seven goals in 10 matches against Barcelona during his days at Atletico Madrid - he has 10 minutes to make that eight or, y'know, not be selfish and defend for his life.

21:21 BST

The ball falls kindly to Sergio Busquets 18 yards out after a Dani Alves nod-down, but the scorer of Barcelona’s first goal can only fire his off-balance effort well over the crossbar. A reminder, folks: as things stand, Chelsea are through to the Champions League final.

Seydou Keita replaces Cesc Fabregas for Barcelona. Just 15 minutes remaining at an incredibly tense Camp Nou.

BOLTON GOALS: Less than three minutes after taking the lead Aston Villa somehow find themselves 2-1 down. First Carlos Cuellar scythes down Mark Davies in the box and Martin Petrov slots it home. Just a few moments later Chris Eagles' mazy run in the area finds David Ngog on his own to slot home simply. What a crazy five minutes of football!

21:14 BST

24/04/2012

A change for Barcelona now - Cristian Tello, who, let’s be honest, was absolutely hopeless against Real Madrid at the weekend, is on for Isaac Cuenca.

21:12 BST

You say that, Emeka, but John Terry has told Sky Sports' pitchside reporter that he did not mean to knee Alexis Sanchez in the back and that he moved to put his weight on his back foot so he did not run into the Barcelona forward. Interesting. #johnterryexcuses, anyone?

21:09 BST

Emeka Lawrence on Twitter: “What John Terry did was very childish and unprofessional. In fact he's a total disgrace”

GOAL!! Aston Villa 1 Bolton 2 (Ngog)

24/04/2012

Thanks a bunch, Villa Park, thanks a bunch. You haven’t missed all that much from Camp Nou, I promise, but Salomon Kalou is on in the place of Juan Mata, and Lionel Messi has fired straight at Petr Cech, who has also been booked for ‘time-wasting’, from a tight angle around 10 yards out.

21:05 BST
