So as we all know the Champions League is well on its way and is now nearly over with only the final to be played. The final will be between Barcelona and Manchester United at Wembley Arena on the 25th of May.
Manchester United were favourites to get to the final as they were lined up against Shalke, who had never progressed this far in their clubs history. With a 6-1 thrashing over two legs it was evident that United were the better side.
Barcelona did not have an easy ride to the final, probably their toughest test was facing Real Madrid in the semi-finals. 'El Classico' as it is known had now been played 5 times this year but Barcelona showed they had the minerals to push them through after a 3-1 win over two legs, with Messi once again stealing the show.
