Manchester United vs. AS Roma
Europa League Semifinals
Date: 29 April 2021; Time: 2:00 pm
Stadium: Old Trafford
If Manchester United arrives at the event in great shape, after achieving continuity in both the Europa League and the Premier League, in which it is second, AS Roma has sunk in recent weeks in Serie A, being seventh and no longer chances of reaching a place in the Champions League.
The English team is the great favorite of the four that remain and it is because they have gone to these semifinals in a practically flawless way, winning both games against Granada, winning at San Siro, and beating Real Sociedad.
Those led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer found their way to success in the Europa League at the hands of Bruno Fernandes, the great star of the team.
The Portuguese has surrounded himself with players who understand his styles, such as Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, and has found in Edinson Cavani the striker to feed with balls. The Uruguayan has in this competition the opportunity to continue pushing for a renewal, since his contract ends on June 30.
Although AS Roma does not arrive with the same solvency, they showed this year that they know how to transform themselves into Europe, in which they have eliminated Braga, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Ajax in the direct elimination phase, in addition to winning their group.
