Every morning TheScore.ie brings you the stories you need to know before your first coffee.

1. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Well, who called that one? Chelsea booked their place in this year’s Champions League decider on a dramatic night at the Camp Nou. Fernando Torres scored a last minute equaliser as the blues earned an unlikely 2-2 draw, having played the entire second half with 10 men after John Terry’s dismissal. Afterwards, you had your say on the state of the Barcelona empire.

2. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE We’ll do it all again tonight as Bayern Munich head to Madrid with a 2-1 first-leg lead. Who do you fancy?

3. #RACING There’s another busy day in store at Punchestown today. Here’s what you need to know.

4. #LEGEND Kilkenny great DJ Carey was rushed to hospital yesterday having collapsed with a suspected heart attack yesterday morning. Gardaí confirmed that Carey became unwell in a public office and was rushed to St Luke’s Hospital, Kilkenny. He is now in a stable condition and was surrounded by family at his bedside last night. We wish him well.

5. #PREMIER LEAGUE If they weren’t already, Aston Villa are right in the relegation mix now having lost 2-1 to fellow strugglers Bolton last night. Watch out, Alex.
