The concluding second leg of two UEFA Champions League 2011 Quarter Finals takes place on the evening of Tuesday 12th April 2011, including the much-anticipated Old Trafford showdown between Manchester United and Chelsea FC of the Barclays Premier League.
Man Utd v Chelsea (aggregate 1-0) – Kick-Off (CET) 20:45
Manchester United carry a slender away-goal advantage into this home tie at Old Trafford courtesy of Wayne Rooney’s Stamford Bridge strike, but Chelsea looked dangerous enough throughout the second half of that match to indicate that it is within them to pull level in this tie with an away goal of their own. The first goal in this match will be absolutely key: if United score, they will be difficult to overcome, at home, with their first choice defenders fit and playing; while a Chelsea opener would make it very much game on.
Shakhtar Donetsk v Barcelona (aggregate 1-5) – Kick-Off (CET) 20:45
Barcelona travel to Ukraine safely four goals ahead in their Quarter Final, which could signal Pep Guardiola to rotate his phenomenally talented squad. Barcelona, even with an entirely second string of players, are still good enough to beat most teams in World football. Expect the Spanish giants to pick up an away win and continue their unbeaten UEFA campaign.
