Manchester United will face Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League.

After the game ended 1-1 (2-2 on aggregate), Marcus Rashford was the hero for United as he netted in extra-time to seal victory for the Red Devils.

United will visit Celta Vigo for the first leg before welcoming them to Old Trafford the following week.
