Tough one to call again, anyone that puts seven past the reigining champions has to be taken very seriously indeed, current league position should not lull utd into believing these two legs will be easyish. Utd don't have a very good record over two legs against German oppposition either. a minimal loss with an away goal or a scoring draw would be a great result tonight. On the other hand if Rooney and Hernandez get chances then a win maybe on the cards, either winning or a draw could be the result and wouldn't suprise me whatever the score was.

1-1

Prefer Barca or Real to school them.

Suprised Schalke are 3/1 at home.

Everybody seems to be under-estimating Schalke, I reckon they've got a bit of momentum behind them in the Champs League, a bit like Liverpool in 2005

Indeed, but Sir Alex is pretty damn good at playing hard ball.

Dont panic sweetie. He hasn't given away the scoreline in the title...... And any spoilers will come in the thread once the game actually kicks off.

Glad to have been of assistance.

Schalke have won every home game in Champions League this season

It would be somewhat fitting if Raul's Schalke met Real Madrid in the final

England (man U) to lose to Germany (Shalke) on penalties in the semi final (2nd leg obviously) Is that not the way it usually goes? :-)

So, how long before United get a penalty after a Cheaterito dive?

Schalke throwing everything in front of the ball at the moment, need to pose more of a threat up front though

He's already signed for Bayern, he joins them at the end of the season

Good first half from Utd.

Oh when did that happen?! I knew the other day he was linked to bayern when it came out he wouldn't sign a new contract

Hoping for a couple of united goals in the second half.

Schalke have to have a go this half if they are to stand any chance in the tie

Good goalkeeping but terrible finishing! Imagine Barca against this lot oO

how did Giggs not get his shot on target after leaving those two defenders for dead?!

Starting to get the feeling this isn't going to be Utd's night
