To liste to Sir Alex’s thoughts ahead of the match versus Barcelona CLICK HERE

For the second year running Man Utd have reached the Champions League Semi-Final stage – for the second year running they overcame Roma in the last 8 of the competition. However, this year they need not worry about facing the prospect of a second leg away from Old Trafford!

United faced AC Milan this time a year ago and despite taking a slim lead over to Italy they were outfought and outclassed at the San Siro. This year is different however, with Sir Alex Ferguson claiming his squad is in far better physical shape.

They travel to Barcelona this time to face a mouth watering clash at the Nou Camp, safe in the knowledge they have Old Trafford to come. A potential match up between Ronaldo and the returning Lionel Messi is enough to get any football fan interested.

The question remains – can United make it through to their first Final since winning the competition in 1999?
