A remarkable 6-2 first-leg win at Old Trafford has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Co. all but confirmed for the final in Gdansk, where they will face Arsenal or Villarreal, but the head coach will hope his players are not distracted despite the heavy advantage.
The build-up to the game, United’s biggest of the season, has been dominated by the fallout from the fan protest against the Glazer family before Sunday’s visit of Liverpool. A number of supporters forced their way into Old Trafford to prompt the postponement of the game.
Date, time and venue
Roma vs Manchester United is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Thursday, May 6, 2021.
The match will be held behind closed doors at Stadio Olimpico.
How to watch
TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport.
Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or BT Sport app.
No fresh injury concerns for Manchester United, with Anthony Martial and Phil Jones still out.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should make changes, though not too many, so Mason Greenwood should start and Edinson Cavani may be rested. Nemanja Matic and Alex Telles will hope for some minutes, while Eric Bailly continues to work but to full fitness after being sidelined.
Prediction: Roma 1-1 Manchester United
A truly remarkable first leg should likely lead to a far more reserved second. The tie is done, this will be Roma looking to take some sort of pride – if possible – from the game, while United see out the game.
