LONDON -- Swansea completed an unfancied lineup for the League Cup final by advancing past Chelsea after a goalless second leg of their semifinal, with the European champion further humbled by finishing with 10 men from a bizarre foul.

Protecting a 2-0 lead from the first leg two weeks ago, the Welsh club defended stubbornly to reach the first major cup final in its 100-year history. It will play fourth-tier Bradford at Wembley Stadium on Feb. 24, making for one of the more unpredictable showpiece matches in the competition's history.

A match bereft of chances and action came to life in the 80th minute when Eden Hazard aimed a kick at a ballboy behind the Swansea goal as the Belgium winger attempted to reclaim the ball. He was sent off.

The ballboy was able to resume his duties.
