FC Schalke vs Inter Milan – Champions League Match
FC Schalke 04 vs Inter Milan:
Date: 13 April 2011 – Time 19:45 GMT
It was one of the most one sided and most daunting result in the first leg as Inter Milan suffered one of their biggest European Cup defeats in the Champions League knock out stages as German team FC Schalke hammered them by 5-2 at San Siro which left Inter Milan with a mountain to climb for the 2nd leg and it will be an interesting match as both the squads go head to head for the 2nd Leg. Although It is unlikely that Inter can pull together something special but it will be an exciting match to watch.
Inter Milan were really bad in the first leg and losing 5 goals at home against a team who are not one of the top European Sides and not in great form either is a cause for concern and than there is another theory, that UEFA have handed Germany the privilage to send 4 team in the Champions League, while Italy have been stripped to just 3 and the Schalke performence put no harm to UEFA’s decision. Italian football have been strange situation although Inter are the defending Champions but they never looked convincing the Champions League through out the tournament.
FC Schalke on the other hand are a team on a high and they have a wonderful oppertunity to make it to the Semi FInal against either Manchester United or Chelsea. They will be going as underdogs in the Semifinal and might creep into the final as well.
