Manchester United scored two valuable goals in Gelsenkirchen and defeated Schalke 04 with confidence in the first leg of the semi-final round of UEFA Champions League 2011.
Welsh midfielder Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney (assisted by Javier ‘Chicharito‘ Hernández) netted within two minutes of each other to give Alex Ferguson’s side a clear advantage going into the return leg at Old Trafford.
Die Königsblauen, even with the legendary Raúl González on their side, were powerless to stop the ‘Red Devils’. They did scored five at San Siro but it seems they’ll need more than a few nifty tricks to pull the same heroic deed in England next week.
Manchester United march unbeaten in their last 12 Champions League matches, and they are really close to the final match to be held at Wembley on May 28th.
