Inter Milan are through to the Champions League final after beating Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate. Barcelona beat a 10-man Inter team 1-0 tonight, but Inter go through on away goals.
It was an incredible performance by Inter. They set out to defend their two goal lead, and that job became even harder when Thiago Motta was shown a straight red card in the 28th minute. It was a terrible decision by the referee, and gave Barcelona a man advantage for over an hour.
But the Inter team defended magnificently. Playing without a forward, Inter gave Barca the ball and dared them to break them down; they couldn’t.
This was one of the all-time great defensive shows by Inter tonight. The whole team defended brilliantly and over the two legs they deserved to win.
