Internazionale Milano 3-1 Barcelona

Inter Milan sent reigning Champions League champions Barcelona to the brink of elimination following their 3-1 victory in the first leg of their semi-final at the San Siro tonight.

It was the game billed as an early final, and if the eventual final in Madrid can live up to what this had to offer, then the 90,000 fans inside the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu will be in for a treat on May 22.

Pedro put Barcelona in front in the 19th minute, but Inter turned the game around thanks to goals from Wesley Sneijder (30th min), Maicon (48th min) into the second half and Diego Milito (61st min).

Inter will now travel to Spain next week looking to wrap up the tie and qualify for their first ever Champions League final appearance.
