Tonight, Barcelona host Real Madrid at Camp Nou while Schalke 04 visits Manchester United tomorrow.
Bralirwa’s Heineken brand manager Jean Pierre Uwizeye said, “Last week, we had power cuts but the problem has been solved and we urge football fans to come and be part of the occasion.”
A rematch of the 2009 Uefa Champions League final is on the cards after firm first leg wins by Barcelona and Manchester United.
In the 2009 final, goals from Samuel Eto’o and Lionel Messi at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico prevented the Red Devils from becoming the first club to win back-to-back titles in the UEFA Champions League era. United had toppled Chelsea 12 months earlier in Moscow.
In the first leg of the all-Spanish semi-final, Barcelona established an insurmountable 2-0 lead over their fierce rivals thanks to a brace from Messi.
United also have one foot in the final that will be stage at Wembley on May 28 following a commanding 2-0 away win over Schalke 04.
