Who do you think will win the Champions League?

Manchester United are now the sole British representative in the Champions League.

The Red Devils will face German opposition in the shape of outsiders Schalke - their only piece of European silverware is the 1997 Uefa Cup - in the semi finals.

Though long shots for the title they have the authentic but ageing quality of Raul as well as the goalscoring threat of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in their line up. In Manuel Neuer, they also have a goalkeeper who has attracted Manchester United’s interest.

Schalke’s win over Inter Milan, the defending champions, surpassed their previous best in the Champions League when they lost to Barcelona in the 2008 quarter-finals.

In the other semi final, Spanish champions Barcelona are pitted against their arch rivals Real Madrid, who overcame Spurs last night to book the clash of the Spanish giants.
