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



THE OTHER SEMI-FINAL

Arsenal are dragging Villarreal 2-1 to the opposite side of the draw, with the eventual winner of that game against United or Roma in Gdansk, Poland on May 26. The Spaniards took a 2-0 lead at El Madrigal and appeared to be able to put the tie to bed after Gunners midfielder Dani Ceballos was sacked for getting a second yellow card. But Mikel Arteta’s side had hope thanks to Nicolas Pepe’s second-half penalty and played well this weekend, beating Newcastle 2-0. Could we see an all-English final? Arsenal and Chelsea met in the final of this competition just two years ago, while United faced England’s opposition only once in the continental final: the 2008 Champions League final, where we defeated Chelsea on penalties on goal in Moscow.
