Schalke 04 0-1 Barcelona Highlights
Barcelona took a significant step towards the semi-finals of the Champions League with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Schalke in Gelsenkirchen
Bojan Krkic scored the only goal of the game in the 12th minute, earning Frank Rijkaard’s side an important away goal on top of the slender lead they take into the second leg. Schalke were outplayed in the first half before coming to life in the second – but they were unable to find a goal, leaving themselves with a mountain to climb at the Nou Camp next week. Schalke coach Mirko Slomka surprised many with his bold team selection, which included Gerald Asamoah and Halil Altintop alongside Kevin Kuranyi in a three-man attack. Barcelona had an attacking trio of Thierry Henry, Bojan and Samuel Eto’o – who had been passed fit to play on Tuesday morning.
