Man U (Manchester United) already kept one foot forward in the final as last week they defeated Roma. In the match, the score was 6-2 at Old Trafford. They meet each other again on Thursday in their Europa League semi-final second leg.
This time the two clubs will play at Stadio Olimpico. Both teams are preparing to play the second leg but their point of view is different. One team is on a winning streak in EPL and another team just named their new manager Jose Mourinho.
Man U was not played not at their best in the first half in the first leg last Thursday. But after the first half, both Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani changed the whole game and destroyed Roma. Edinson Cavani now scored 50 goals in a European competition.
The history between Them:
Man U thrashed the same opponent back in 2007 by 7-1. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a substitute in that match against Roma. And this time he is the Coach of Man U.
Without any doubt, since 2017’s final success under incoming Roma manager Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils are now firm favorites to lift their first trophy. There are only Villarreal or Arsenal left standing in their way.
Roma has to do unreal things to make its way into the finals. They are four goals behind their opponent. They need to score four goals without conceding any goal. It’s very difficult for them as the upfront of Man U is on the form. They have Bruno, Cavani, and Greenwood on their team.
Man U & Roma Team News:
Man U coach confirmed that they will not get the services of the two players only. Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are out as he has for long-term injury. The full strength squad is available and expected to go to Roma with the team.
