Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar wants Barcelona to beat Chelsea in their Champions League clash 'for the good of football'. Van der Sar slammed Chelsea's defensive tactics during their semi-final first-leg 1-0 victory over the Spanish side.

Former ­Manchester United goalie and Champions League winner Van Der Sar said: "For the sake of the game and for football in ­general, I hope Barcelona win in the Nou Camp."

He continued: "I love teams who attack.

"Chelsea did nothing but ­defend with nine players and kept lots of players in the ­middle of the park. But this tie could have been over by now.

"I expected Chelsea to lose by a big figure. And it could still have been 5-1 to Barca at the end.

"Chelsea had just one shot at goal - and they scored."
