I'm very happy to say that our Red Devils will face Schalke 04 in one half of UEFA Champions League semi-finals with a hulking version of El Clásico taking place in the other half. It feels good to be deep in Europe's most prestigous competition while still kicking ass in the PL and the FA Cup back home.
Don't get me wrong. I am in no way overlooking our German opponents. They've played brilliantly in this year's CL and will be no pushover. That being said, my question to you, fellow Babes, is who would you rather face in the finals? While Real Madrid is not a squad to sneeze at, I do feel that of the two, they're the easier match-up. There's also the extra incentive of being able to stick it to Rona-sold.
Of course, it would also be nice to exact a measure of revenge against the club that beat us two years ago in Rome. Also, beating Barça would be a statement to Europe from what I feel is a highly underrated 2010/2011 ManUtd team.
