Celta Vigo test for United


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

Jose Mourinho's men booked their place in the last four with a 3-2 aggregate win over Anderlecht, but they were made to work hard for the victory.

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.

The second semi-final sees Ajax host Lyon in the first leg.

Ajax eliminated Schalke 4-3 on aggregate to progress to the semi-finals, while Lyon overcame  Besiktas on penalties to reach the last four for the first time.
