Barca edge through

Published Add your comment

Barcelona set up a mouth-watering Champions League semi-final clash with Manchester United following a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Schalke at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

Yaya Toure´s scuffed strike after 43 minutes was enough to give the Catalan outfit a narrow win and a 2-0 aggregate triumph over a German side who dominated much of the first half.

Barca started brightly and could have gone ahead after just two minutes, when Samuel Eto´o fed Bojan Krkic in the area, but the youngster miscontrolled his effort and Xavi volleyed over the bar following a series of rebounds.
