Champions League: Real and Schalke without surprises

Champions League: Real and Schalke without surprises. 44031.jpegReal Madrid won at White Hart Lane (home of Tottenham Hotspur FC) with a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo, making it 5-0 on aggregate, while German side Schalke made Inter face another miserable night, winning 2-1 and 7-3 on aggregate. Real Madrid, Schalke, Manchester United and Barcelona are in the last four.

Tottenham Hotspur FC (England) 0 v. Real Madrid Spain) 1

First leg Real Madrid 4 Tottenham 0

Adebayor (2), Di Maria; Cristiano Ronaldo

Second leg: 0-1  Cristiano Ronaldo (50')

 

Tottenham had a balanced game and ten shots, 3 on target, against Real's 5 (4 on). Real Madrid's 5-0 drubbing of Tottenham over two legs shows Harry Redknapp how much he has to do to go where he wants to.

 Schalke 04 (Germany) 2 Internazionale (Italy) 1

First leg: Inter 2 Schalke 5

Inter: Stankovic; Milito

Schalke: Matip; Edu (2); Raúl Gonzalez; Ranocchia (o.g.)

Second leg: 2-1 (Raúl González - 45'; Howedes, 81'; Thiago Motta, 49')

Inter had more of the game - 15 shots to 6, 60% of ball possession to 40% but then again had to come back from an impossible first leg score. As we said last week, today's matches were cosmetic.

Second Leg: 2-1 Goals Hernández (43'), Park Ji-Sung (77'); Drogba (77')

Manchester United went into the interval a goal ahead. John O'Shea found Ryan Giggs on the right, and the in-form Welsh international made his first assist to Javier Hernández who had only to turn the ball in at the far post. Chelsea levelled after 77', Didier Drogba drilling Michael Essien's pass under Van der Sar. Within a mjinute, United was 2-1 up - Giggs again providing the pass after receiving from Wayne Rooney - and  Park Ji-Sung shot past Petr Čech.

Second Leg: Shakhtar 0 Barcelona 1

Goal: Lionel Messi (43')

Shakhtar had 10 shots, five on target, against Barça's 14 and the Spanish side's possession (62% to 38%) spelt their control of the game and the tie. The aggregate score speaks for itself.

Aggregate: Barcelona 6 - Shakhtar 1

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
