Man Utd vs Roma Fixture Preview

Manchester United

The Red Devils made it to three cup semi-finals last year and did not manage to progress further in any. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows what it means to win in Europe as a player and will be urging his players to get over their last season’s heartache. With a second place in the Premier League all but guaranteed, their sole focus will be on the Europa League. Bruno Fernandes will United’s ace in the hole but attention should also be kept on Edinson Cavani at the tip of Red Devils’ attack.

AS Roma

After impressing for the duratino of the 2020/21 campaign, Paulo Fonseca’s men are letting it all slip at the tail end of the campaign. The Romans have slipped to seventh place in the Serie A rankings, a far cry from their top-four placement a couple of months ago. With UEFA Champions League qualification hopes fading through the domestic route, the Europa League is their best bet to claim the mega monies on offer. Roma’s hopes will be shouldered by former Manchester United star, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has nine goals and eight assists to his name.
