Chelsea’s Champions League win in 2012 will not be complete without talking about the game against Barcelona in the semifinals.
Barcelona were comfortably 2-0 ahead and looked like they had beaten Chelsea to the final spot, until Ramires gave Chelsea a lifeline with a sumptuous chip over Victor Valdes just before halftime.
Ramires, who currently plies his trade in China has said that he’d never forget that goal.
“I cannot deny that the special moment for me was when I scored the goal over Valdes on Camp Nou in the semi-finals of Champions League,” Ramires said. “The importance of that moment was so great that people asked me to talk about the goal and did not ask for the title. It was something magical, that was eternalised in my memory and in the memory of every fan of Chelsea.” He told Goal.
True Rami, the whole Chelsea family still remembers that goal till date.
