Schalke have sent out a warning message to the last three teams in the Champions League after defeating Inter in both legs of their quarter final tie. The German side tore Inter apart in the first leg and did the same in the second running out 2-1 winners against a less than impressive Italian outfit. Raul was back to his best scoring the opener after dribbling around the keeper.
Inter equalised through Motta but this was no help as the Germans scored late on to sent the defending Champions out of the competition. Schalke will now face Manchester United in the final. The German side will go in as underdogs, but they did so against Inter also.
