Video: CL Highlights: Barcelona/Chelsea

* * *

Against the odds and (mostly) everyone’s expectations, Chelsea survived a trip to Camp Nou and advanced to the UEFA Champions League final past favored Barcelona with a 3-2 semifinal win on aggregate.

Ramires scored a stunning winner in first-half stoppage time to answer a pair of goals by Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta, which had seemed to clinch the series, particularly after Blues defender John Terry earned a silly red card.

Chelsea, as you know, will come to Seattle for a July 18 friendly against Sounders FC at CenturyLink Field. Before then, they’ll face either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the UCL final.

What did you make of the game? Are you more excited for this summer’s friendly?
