It works both ways as the chance to exact it is presented to both us and Chelsea in the Champions League quarter final. With the March 1st league game and the 2008 final fresh in mind both teams will want to get one over on the other with the a place in the semi finals as the reward.
Having gone out in the quarters last season Sir Alex will be hoping for a better performance this time out against arguably stronger opposition.
Inter Milan/Schalke v Chelsea/Manchester United
Real Madrid/Tottenham v Barcelona/Shakhtar Donetsk
Semi-final first legs will be staged on April 26-27, second legs on May 3-4.
