Roma vs Man United: Europa League semi-final preview

A remarkable 6-2 first-leg win at Old Trafford has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Co. all but confirmed for the final in Gdansk, where they will face Arsenal or Villarreal, but the head coach will hope his players are not distracted despite the heavy advantage.

The build-up to the game, United’s biggest of the season, has been dominated by the fallout from the fan protest against the Glazer family before Sunday’s visit of Liverpool. A number of supporters forced their way into Old Trafford to prompt the postponement of the game.

Date, time and venue

Roma vs Manchester United is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Thursday, May 6, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Stadio Olimpico.

Prediction: Roma 1-1 Manchester United

A truly remarkable first leg should likely lead to a far more reserved second. The tie is done, this will be Roma looking to take some sort of pride – if possible – from the game, while United see out the game.
