Barcelona - Inter Milan battled for more than an hour with 10 men to cling on against Barcelona on Wednesday, eliminating the holders 3-2 on aggregate to advance to next month's Champions League final.

After losing last week's semi-final first leg in Milan 3-1, Barca's hopes of meeting Bayern Munich in Madrid on May 22 were lifted when Inter defender Thiago Motta clashed with Sergio Busquets in the 28th minute and was sent off.

The home fans filled the vast Nou Camp arena with noise and Barca dominated possession but struggled to create clear chances.

A superbly-taken goal from stand-in striker Gerard Pique in the 84th minute gave Barca a 1-0 win on the night but it was not enough to stop Jose Mourinho's men reaching the final.
