United will play Chelsea or Liverpool at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday May 21 in what will be their third European Cup final.

Scholes struck a right-footed shot into the top corner from long range after a misplaced pass from Gianluca Zambrotta after 14 minutes of the second leg at Old Trafford.

United – without injured duo Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic – had chances to extend their lead in the first half but lived on the edge after the break as the Catalans threatened to score a crucial away goal.

But the hosts held on to their slim advantage and, with the first leg at the Nou Camp having ended goalless, United progressed 1-0 on aggregate to an all-English showdown in Russia.
