Manchester United play Schalke 04 for place at Wembley

Manchester United fans might want to consider their choice of London hotels for the Champions League final after their semi-final tie was confirmed.

German underdogs Schalke 04 defeated defending Champions Inter Milan 2-1 last night (Wednesday April 13th), giving them a 7-3 aggregate victory, while United eased past Chelsea after beating them 2-1 in the second leg at Old Trafford the night before.

The pair will now play for a place in the final at Wembley Stadium, with the first leg happening in Germany on Tuesday April 26th, and the second leg at Old Trafford on Wednesday May 4th.

In the other semi-final Spanish giants Barcelona will entertain Real Madrid, with the two legs coming as part of four meetings between the El Classico clubs in the next few weeks.

Real Madrid last night completed their 5-0 aggregate demolition of Tottenham Hotspur, while Barcelona did likewise when they travelled away to Shakhtar Donetsk, cruising through 6-1 over the two legs.

The final will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday May 28th, with many expecting Manchester United to face favourites Barcelona.
