Manchester United’s 6-2 demolition of Roma at Old Trafford last week means they are all but certain of a place in the Europa League final this season, as they prepare for Thursday’s reverse leg in Italy.
United actually fell behind in the first half to a Roma side desperate to claim European glory, but flicked into cruise control after the break to earn a four goal advantage over their opponents.
It was quite possibly one of the most one-sided Europa League fixtures of the season by the end of it, and in the aftermath Roma have swooped to appoint former United boss Jose Mourinho as their new manager from the summer.
United have had a week to prepare for this clash, after their Premier League tie with Liverpool was suspended on Sunday when fans, protesting the club’s ownership, broke into the stadium.
And boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may well opt to keep the same XI that claimed a famous victory at Old Trafford, in order to avoid any second-leg upsets in Rome.

Our prediction: Roma v Man Utd
Roma collapsed against United last time out and it was that 45-minute blip that has ultimately cost them a place in the Europa League final.
United won’t surrender their place in Gdansk from here. With a four-goal cushion and a near-fully fit squad, Solskjaer will instruct his troops to play a steady game.
There won’t be any risks taken. The game will be regularly broken up. And, in the end, United will progress. This probably won’t be a classic semi-final in Rome, and the hosts may even pinch the win. But it won’t be enough to progress.
