Europa League: Man United, Villarreal Qualify For Final

Villarreal and Manchester United will be clashing at the 2020/2021 Europa League final.

Unai Emery in a face-off with his old team (Arsenal), led Villarreal to secure a spot at the final.

Villarreal’s 2-1 victory at the first leg of the semis in their home gave them an edge over Arsenal.

The Arteta side were, however, unable to meet up with the deficit as the second leg ended in a goalless draw, bringing the aggregate to 1-2.

Meanwhile, United have also booked their spot at the final, after defeating A.S. Roma in a 5-8 aggregate.

The Solskjaer’s side were able to secure the first leg of the semi-finals after they thrashed the Serie A team, 6-2 at Old Trafford.

Edin Džeko and Bryan Cristante’s scores in addition to Allex Telles’ own goal gave Roma some hopes in the second leg fixture.

They were, however, unable to meet up with the deficit as Cavani’s double ended the game at 3-2.

Roma had announced that Jose Mourinho will be taking over from Paulo Fonseca next season.

The Reds will therefore be meeting the Yellow Submarine in Poland on May 26.
