Liverpool 2, AC Milan 0: Joe Allen struck early and Suso scored late as Liverpool beat AC Milan in Charlotte, North Carolina, to advance to the title game.

Inter Milan 2, AS Roma 0: Nemanja Vedic and Yuto Magatomo scored and Inter Milan topped AS Roma in Philadelphia. Inter struck just before halftime, when Vidic headed in Dodo’s free kick.

Olympiacos 2, Manchester City 2: Dimitrios Diamantakos scored twice in regulation and Roberto Jimenez Gago made two saves in a shootout to help Olympiacos beat Manchester City 5-4 on penalty kicks after a tie in Minneapolis. Stevan Jovetic and Aleksander Kolarov scored for City.
