Video: Man Utd To Meet Barcelona In Wembley

Manchester United cruised into a mouth-watering Wembley Champions League final against Barcelona after their second string beat Schalke 4-1 at Old Trafford, giving the Premier League leaders a 6-1 aggregate semi-final win.

Despite making nine changes from the 2-0 win in Gelsenkirchen, United were in control for much of the game and, while Schalke showed more than they did at home, there was no real danger as goals from Antonio Valencia and Darron Gibson gave them a near unassailable lead.

Jose Manuel Jurado pulled one back to make it 2-1 at half-time but a second-half brace from Anderson put the result beyond doubt as Sir Alex Ferguson faces a selection conundrum ahead of the final and indeed the Premier League title clash with Chelsea at the weekend.

United have now qualified for three of the last four Champions League finals, a remarkable achievement given their perceived lack of spending power compared to Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona and now Manchester City.
