Manchester United v. Barcelona in Champions League Final

Manchester United v. Barcelona in Champions League Final. 44235.jpegThe two greatest teams on Earth this year are set to meet in the final of the Champions League - England's Manchester United and Spain's Barcelona, after Barça knocked out arch rivals Real Madrid 3-1 and United thrashed Germany's Schalke 04 6-1 over two legs.

After United's 2-0 victory away in Germany in last week's first game, tonight's return match at Old Trafford produced more of the same: four goals against one (Valencia on 26' and Gibson on 31' for United; Jurado pulled one back after 35'; then two second-half goals from Anderson, 72' and 76').

Schalke had more of the ball (55% against 45%) and nine shots against United's ten. However of these, United had eight on target compared with Schalke's 4.

United and Barça will play at Wembley Stadium, London, on May 28 - a rematch of the final in 2009 (Rome) won by Barça (Eto'o and who else? Messi). This time, Manchester United will be far stronger, and will present a team which Pepe Guardiola did not see tonight - Sir Alex Ferguson only played two of the team which one in Schalke 2-0 in the starting line-up.
