Europa League: Manchester United draw Celta Vigo in semi-final

Only two games separate Jose Mourinho’s men from the competition decider in Sweden, but the Spanish side stand in their way

Manchester United have drawn Celta Vigo and Ajax have drawn Lyon in the Europa League semi-finals.

Jose Mourinho’s men battled past Anderlecht in extra-time thanks to a winner from young striker Marcus Rashford on Thursday, winning 3-2 on aggregate.

Their semi-final opponents, Spanish side Celta, eliminated Genk 4-3 on aggregate after drawing 1-1 in the second leg in Belgium this week.

United will visit Celta for the first-leg of their encounter on March 4, before welcoming them back to Old Trafford the following week.

Meanwhile, Ajax, who beat Schalke in the previous round with a 4-3 aggregate win after extra-time, will host Lyon for the first game between the two.

The French side got the better of Besiktas in penalties in their last-eight tie to reach this stage of the Europa League for the first time.

The victor of Ajax vs Lyon was drawn as the nominal home side for the final, which will be played at the Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden.
