Sky Sports football reporter [[Geoff Shreeves]] crushed the dreams of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic by informing him his yellow card in tonight’s game means he’ll miss the UEFA Champions League Final on 19 May 2012.
Chelsea drew 2-2 with Barcelona in tonight’s semi-final game at the Nou Camp, but the Blues first leg goal from Didier Drogba means the English club advance to the final for the second time in the club’s history.
