But not everything has been different in the two entities. As for the block of players, it has remained quite identical during these three years. Chelsea remain in the template eight of 11 holders of the day of the goal by Iniesta. They have only left Club Alex, Ballack and Anelka, while Cech, Bosingwa, Terry, Lampard, Cole, Malouda, Essien and Drogba remain on the computer.
In Barcelona, the figure is even higher: nine of eleven holders on May 6, 2009 are still altogether Guardiola. Only Africans Touré and Eto' or are gone. In the semi-final, the average age of both teams was, however, quite different: 28 years and 10 months at Chelsea and 25 years and 11 months at Barça.
Three technicians from Hiddink in coaching there are more differences. While Josep Guardiola is still leading the first team in Barça Can, in the neighborhood of Chelsea have succeeded to Guus Hiddink, technical in that semi-final, up to three names: Carlo Ancelotti (2009-11), André Villas-Boas (2011-12) and Roberto di Matteo, the coach from March 4. Guardiola puede 'cargarse' a Piqué y Cesc.
