Catalan giants, Barcelona have booked their place into yet another final of the UEFA Champions League, after beating bitter rivals Real Madrid 3-1, on aggregate goal difference.
Remarkable scenes were seen at Nou Camp the other night on Tuesday, May 3, when thousands of Barcelona fans celebrated the success of their team, who have now reached closer to claiming their fourth European Cup title.
