Match preview: AS Roma v Man Utd | 6 May 2021



THE OTHER SEMI-FINAL

Arsenal trail Villarreal 2-1 on the opposite side of the draw, with that tie’s eventual winner meeting United or Roma in Gdansk, Poland on 26 May. The Spaniards took a 2-0 lead at El Madrigal, and appeared to be in a position to put the tie to bed after Gunners midfielder Dani Ceballos was dismissed for picking up a second yellow card. But Mikel Arteta’s team were given hope by Nicolas Pepe’s second-half penalty, and played well at the weekend by beating Newcastle 2-0. Could we see an all-English final? Arsenal and Chelsea met in the final of this very competition only two years ago, while United have faced¬†English opposition in a continental final just once: the 2008 Champions League final, where we overcame Chelsea on penalties in Moscow.¬†
