  348. He was not alone. Around him, the <a href="http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/sports/soccer/premier-league/chelsea_football_club/index.html?inline=nyt-org" title="More articles about Chelsea (Soccer Team)." class="meta-org">Chelsea</a> players threw their arms over one another, hugging in equal parts glee and exhaustion. The Barcelona players only stared, as if overwhelmed by a pair of sobering truths: On this day, Messi, the greatest player in the world, could not score. And Barcelona, considered the greatest team in the world, could not win.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  349.     Instead, it was Chelsea that advanced to the <span itemprop="association" itemscope="itemscope"
  350.         itemtype="http://schema.org/SportsAssociation/Soccer">
  351.         <link itemprop="url" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Champions_League"/>Champions League</span> final despite playing a man short for nearly an hour in front of a frenzied crowd at Camp Nou stadium. With Chelsea winning by 1-0 in the first leg of this semifinal, its 2-2 draw Tuesday was more than enough to carry it through on aggregate. The Blues will face Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the final May 19.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  352.             &ldquo;It&rsquo;s one of the finest moments in a Chelsea shirt,&rdquo; the veteran midfielder <span itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/SportsAthlete/Soccer"><link itemprop="url" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Lampard" /><link itemprop="memberOf" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelsea_F.C." /><link itemprop="position" href="http://schema.org/SportsAthlete/Soccer/midfielder" />Frank Lampard</span> said afterward. &ldquo;To perform like that &mdash; what spirit. It was unbelievable.&rdquo;        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  353.                 Unbelievable for Chelsea, maybe; for Barcelona, the result was shocking. Questions had lingered over the Catalans after they lost their last two matches, including a dispiriting defeat here against Real Madrid over the weekend that virtually assured that Real Madrid will win the Spanish league title. Now, after his team crashed out of the Champions League in startling fashion, Coach <span itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/SportsAssociate/Soccer"><link itemprop="url" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josep_Guardiola" /><link itemprop="memberOf" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Barcelona" /><link itemprop="jobTitle" href="http://schema.org/SportsAssociate/Coach" />Pep Guardiola</span>, who has won 13 trophies since taking over in 2008, will face only more scrutiny.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  354. In his postgame news conference, Guardiola seemed sullen. At one point, he was asked what he would tell his son, who might have cried for the first time after seeing Barcelona stumble. Guardiola snorted.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  355. &ldquo;Welcome to the club, that&rsquo;s what I can tell him,&rdquo; Guardiola said.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  356. Guardiola will not be the only person scrutinized; Messi, too, will face questions about a scoring drought that has come on at the worst time. Messi, a dazzling Argentine known for his prodigious scoring, was held without a goal for a third straight game, missing chances of every kind, including one from the penalty spot: a mistake roughly equivalent to LeBron James missing a breakaway dunk.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  357. That kick, which clanged off the crossbar, will be the moment Barcelona&rsquo;s fans will rue. Trailing on aggregate after Ramires&rsquo;s chip in first-half injury time, Barcelona would have been back in control with a goal. Instead, it was forced to continue pressing, trying to capitalize on the man advantage after John Terry was sent off in the 37th minute.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  358. It came close more than once: Barcelona had a goal called back for offside late and Messi, again, hit the post with a low blast in the 83rd minute.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  359. &ldquo;I think we failed because we did everything we could, but we didn&rsquo;t score,&rdquo; Guardiola said. &ldquo;And football is about scoring.&rdquo;        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  360. Of course, in the beginning, Chelsea might have disagreed. The Blues&rsquo; defensive approach, with nearly all their players packed in deep, made much of the first half look like something from a youth soccer practice. While Chelsea retreated, Barcelona continually controlled the ball around the penalty area, poking and prodding and trying to find a way through a space more congested than Las Ramblas on a sunny afternoon.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  361. Barcelona finally broke through in the 35th minute, though, as Dani Alves fed Isaac Cuenca on the outside, and Cuenca raced to the end line before cutting the ball back to Sergio Busquets, who coolly finished.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  362. Alves was in the game because Barcelona&rsquo;s starting center back, Gerard Piqu&eacute;, was flattened in a scary collision with his own goalkeeper, V&iacute;ctor Vald&eacute;s. Chasing a high-bouncing ball, Piqu&eacute; never saw Vald&eacute;s rushing out and his head crashed into Vald&eacute;s, leaving him limp near the edge of his penalty area.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  363. He was replaced moments later and was in the dressing room recovering when the game exploded.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  364. Terry was in the middle of it. Two minutes after Chelsea lost its lead, it also lost its leader after Terry&rsquo;s inexplicable knee to the back of Alexis S&aacute;nchez. Terry screamed in protest, but the contact was clear.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  365. &ldquo;I was trying to protect myself, but looking at it on the replay, it does look like a red card, so no complaints,&rdquo; Terry said.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  366. Had the game played out differently, Terry would have surely been castigated, but as it is, he will be just one of several Chelsea players to miss the final. Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles will also sit out after picking up yellow cards that pushed them over the accumulated threshold for suspension.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  367. Chelsea Coach Roberto Di Matteo, however, was not interested in pondering that particular challenge just yet, choosing instead to focus on the glee he felt when Fernando Torres scored in second-half injury time to ensure Chelsea&rsquo;s passage.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  368. Di Matteo&rsquo;s emotions were understandable. Chelsea was nearly eliminated several times on its way to the final, and at 2-0 down with only 10 men Tuesday, even Di Matteo admitted it looked dark.        </p><p itemprop="articleBody">
  369. But then came Ramires&rsquo;s beautiful chip over Vald&eacute;s, a &ldquo;lifeline,&rdquo; Di Matteo said. And then, not much later, came Messi&rsquo;s penalty miss. Soon, Camp Nou would go quiet. Barcelona&rsquo;s Champions League season &mdash; and, perhaps, its dynasty &mdash; had ended.        </p><NYT_CORRECTION_BOTTOM>	<div class="articleCorrection">
