Manchester United have proceeded to the Semi-Final of the Europa League following the defeat to Granada yesterday. This will see them facing the Italian giants Roma.
United progressed to the last-four of the competition yesterday with a 2-0 win over Granada CF at Old Trafford. Edinson Cavani’s second goal in as many games after just six minutes put them ahead before Jesus Vallejo netted an own-goal late on, meaning that was enough to secure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side passage to the next phase of the competition after winning last week’s first-leg 2-0, which accumulated an aggregate of 4 – 0.
The Old Trafford club will now face Roma for a place in the final after they defeated Ajax 3-2 on aggregate over the course of two legs. The second-leg at the Stadio Olimpico finished 1-1, meaning Roma’s 2-1 win in the Netherlands last week was enough to see them through without too much fuss.
The first legs of the semi-finals will be staged on Thursday, April 29 and the second legs will take place a week later on Thursday, May 6.
The final is scheduled to take place in Gdansk, Poland, on Wednesday, May 26.
