Two semi-final matchups in the UEFA Champions League took place this week and Lionel Messi stole the show. Messi scored two goals to lead FC Barcelona past Real Madrid in their first match in the semis. They will face each other again on Tuesday in the second match to see who will move on to the finals.

In the second match, Schalke was defeated by Manchester United. Scoring for Manchester United was Ryan Giggs, followed shortly thereafter by Wayne Rooney. Man U will look to eliminate Schalke on Tuesday and move into their third final in the last four years.
