Man United vs Roma, Europa League SF, Match Preview

After thrashing Roma at Old Trafford last week, Man United will face their Italian rivals in the second leg game of the Europa League semifinal. It should be an easy win for United after a compelling victory in the first leg game.

Team Preview 

Man United and Roma will now lock horns in the second leg semifinal of the Europa League. Man United almost sealed the berth in the final after a 6-2 success in the first leg. It won’t be easy for Roma to overcome the margin of four goals. Both Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani scored braces. Red Devils came from behind and thrashed Roma with ease. United destroyed Roma in 2007 at Champions League when they won by 7-1 margin. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the substitute in 2007’s famous win. 

Ole lost four semifinals earlier for United and he would look to avoid it this time. They lost to eventual winner Sevilla in 2020 in this competition. The Red Devils can eye their first major trophy since 2017. United have a strong grip on the second spot in Premier League and they would like to move on from the recent drama at Old Trafford by fans. They will face Leicester and Liverpool in the gap of 50 hours next week in the Premier League. Man City requires only two points to seal the Premier League title. 

Meanwhile, Roma is already going through a tough phase and their fans are not happy with the recent form of the Italian club. Club has already announced the new manager for the next season. They are under-performing in Serie A 2020-21 and Europa League’s doors are also almost closed. Roma became the first team ever to make three substitutions in the first half of a Europa League game. Roma have won just one of their last nine matches on road. They can only think positively about their home run. 

If Roma pulls off this deficit at home, they will become the first Italian club to ship six goals in a continental semi-final. Their first-choice goalkeeper Pau Lopez will miss the entire season. Centre-back Gianluca Mancini has served his European suspension and will be available for this game. For United, Ole will travel with a full-strength side. Henderson, Daniel James, and Greenwood may start for United this time.
