Chelsea 2 – 0 Fenerbahçe (AGG 3-2)
After losing 2-1 in the first leg, Chelsea were looking to be wilting in the limelight, but a decent home performance gave them the go-ahead to meet up with Liverpool…again, in the semifinals.
Scorers: Ballack (4’), Lampard (87’)
Barcelona 1 – 0 Schalke (AGG 2-0)
With Barcelona already ahead with an away goal from the first leg, it was practically a no-brainer that they would be heading to the semi-finals.
Scorer: Toure (43’)
Manchester United 1 – 0 Roma (AGG 3-0)
With Rooney and Ronaldo relegated to the bench, United fans were left concerned with Fergie’s team selection. But Hargreaves’ performance made him look like he should be lining up at the start for United more often than not. In the end, and not surprisingly, United edged out a win to face Barcelona in the semifinals.
Scorer: Tevez (70’)
