Barcelona 1-0 Inter (Inter 3-2 on agg)

Barcelona have beaten Inter Milan 1-0 in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final, but Inter advance to the final 3-2 on aggregate.

Gerard Pique's late strike at the Nou Camp proved insufficient for Barcelona as a Jose Mourinho-inspired Inter Milan held out for more than an hour with 10 men to seal their passage to a European Cup final for the first time since 1972.

Mourinho's side, protecting a 3-1 lead from the first leg, were reduced to 10 men following Thiago Motta's 28th-minute dismissal, but the Italians defended heroically - and at times cynically - to deny Pep Guardiola's men.
