Barcelona:

FC Barcelona drew 0-0 with AC Milan on Wednesday to advance to the Champions League final 1-0 on aggregate.Barcelona, which won the first leg on France forward Ludovic Giuly's goal at the San Siro last week, will play Arsenal at the Stade de France in Paris on May 17.''We did the job we had to do and I'm very happy to be in the final,'' Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard said.Milan goalkeeper Dida made two one-on-one saves to deny Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o in the first half, and another block on a header from reserve forward Henrik Larsson after halftime.Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko had a goal disallowed in the 69th minute for a foul on Barcelona captain and defender Carles Puyol in front of a sold-out 95,000-strong crowd at Camp Nou stadium.''The Shevchenko goal was absolutely legal. He jumped and hardly touched Puyol,'' Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti said. ''Barcelona played well, but the match was always in the balance and we were close to the final.''Rijkaard wouldn't comment on whether he thought the goal was legitimate or not.''I didn't think anything about it other than that it was disallowed,'' he said.Barcelona has made five finals for one European Cup win - 1-0 against Sampdoria in 1992 - while Arsenal has never played in a Champions League title match before.
