Schalke face a Champions League semi-final encounter with Manchester United after beating Inter Milan for the second time in a week, with a 2-1 victory in Gelsenkirchen.
Following last Tuesday's emphatic 5-2 victory in Italy, it was the talismanic forward Raul and defender Benedikt Howedes who scored the goals which rubber-stamped Schalke's advance to the final four of the competition.
Inter failed to create anywhere near enough chances to bring about the unlikely comeback the defending European champions were hoping to achieve, and only Thiago Motta managed to get his name on the scoresheet.
