Manchester United to meet Ajax in Europa cup final

Manchester United Thursday night survived a late rally from Celta Vigo to book a place in the finals of the Europa league finals scheduled for Stockholm on 24 May 2017.

Marouane Fellaini headed home Marcus Rashford’s cross in the first half to lead 2-0 on aggregate.

But Celta, needing two goals, levelled on the night through Facundo Roncaglia to set up a tense final few minutes.

United’s Eric Bailly and Roncaglia were sent off after a mass brawl, and the hosts hung on to reach the final.

The aggregate victory took the Red Devils a step closer to their first Europa League triumph and a return to the Champions League.

They will meet Ajax, who beat Lyon, 5-4 on aggregate in the other semi-final.
