FC Schalke 04 2-1 FC Internazionale Milano (agg: 7-3)
Raúl González scored one and set up a delightful second as the Bundesliga outfit completed a resounding aggregate win to advance to the semi-finals. C Schalke 04 are through to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the first time after rounding off a 7-3 aggregate victory over holders FC Internazionale Milano in Gelsenkirchen.

Raúl González's 71st UEFA Champions League goal further dented any faint hopes the Nerazzurri had of mounting an unlikely comeback from their 5-2 first-leg reverse on the stroke of half-time. Thiago Motta equalised early in the second period, but Benedikt Höwedes fired in a superb winner with nine minutes remaining to leave Ralf Rangnick's side looking forward to a last-four encounter with Manchester United FC.

Sir Alex Ferguson observed proceedings from the stands as, like in the first leg, Leonardo's side made the early running. Wesley Sneijder fired the first of two early attempts on goal straight at Manuel Neuer and the message was clear: the visitors were not giving up their title without a fight.
