Chelsea recorded a historic victory Tuesday evening, beating Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate to qualify for the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final. The European media were quick to jump on the story with Marca, the Catalan newspaper, summing up the mood in Barcelona (see above).
Meanwhile, the Madrid newspaper AS coined the feeling of many Real Madrid and Chelsea supporters Tuesday night with two simple words (see above).
In Germany, Bild’s headline exclaimed that Lionel Messi missed a penalty, and Barcelona out.
And last but not least, The Daily Mail captured the joy and elation on the face of Fernando Torres who has faced an incredibly difficult year, but won a place in the hearts of Chelsea (and many England soccer fans) by scoring a last minute equalizer to put the icing on the cake that sent Chelsea into the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final against Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.
