Madrid, Barca a hurdle away from 'Clasico' final

LONDON — Barcelona and Real Madrid have one more hurdle to overcome if the tantalizing prospect of a first "Clasico" final in the Champions League is to become a reality.

Chelsea, under interim manager Roberto di Matteo, stands in the way of defending champion Barcelona and a third Champions League showpiece in four years.

Madrid faces a freescoring Bayern Munich team eager to reach the final to be played at their Allianz Arena on May 19.

The two clubs have won Europe's biggest club prize 13 times between them and Bayern attacking midfielder Thomas Mueller says "we'll pull everything out, we'll fight, give everything to make it."
