chelsea-1-barca-1 Iniesta’s dramatic injury-time leveller sent 10-man Barcelona into the Champions League final after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea. The spainsh wizard struck a stunning goal in the 93rd minute to cancel out Michael Essiens equally impressive ninth-minute strike to send the Catalans through to the May 27 final against Manchester United. Chelsea looked to have kept Barcelona at bay and sealed an all-Premier League clash in Rome on a night of nerve-jangling tension after Michael Essien’s  beauty.Chelsea looked on their way to the final after a superb defensive display that restricted Barcelona all night until Iniesta’s deadly strike.
Drogba wasted a perfect opportunity to secure a second goal for Chelsea early in the second half, only to strike his finish against Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes.
But Chelsea’s real bone of contention came from those penalty appeals, especially a first-half collision between Drogba and Eric Abidal, then a clear handball by Gerard Pique after the break.Shocked Chelsea, who had four penalty appeals turned down, surrounded the referee at the final whistle as their frustrations boiled over.When the final whistle blew, Drogba marched on to direct his tirade at referee Ovrebo – it was an act that only increased the sense of anger and injustice on the air on a night of bitter disappointment for Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola did a remix run of Jose Mourinho touchline sprint when they scored but  knocked poor guus out the way.Didier Drogba swearing at TV cameras showed what he had on his mind. Barcelona now face United in the final – but it was victory at a price with Dani Alves ruled out of the final after a booking and Abidal also missing after he was unluckily sent off for tangling with Nicolas Anelka.Coach Guus Hiddink described the refereeing as the worst he had ever seen after Chelsea were knocked out in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona

“I can fully understand in the emotion of the game, as long as they don’t touch him, I can fully understand this disappointment,” said Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink.Do you think he was right?

In a statement on the Blues’ official website the Ivorian said: “I was very upset at what happened during the game, but having seen the pictures on TV I accept that I overreacted.”

The statement continued: “I also accept that the language I used did not set a good example for those watching at home, especially children.

“I regret that in the heat of the moment I let out my incredible frustration and disappointment in this way, and for that I apologise.”

Drogba, who had been substituted in the second half, was shown a yellow card for coming onto the pitch to vent his fury at Ovrebo after the final whistle.
