Manchester United have been drawn against Celta Vigo in the UEFA Europa League semi-finals 2017/18. United beat Anderlecht 2-1 at Old Trafford to progress past the quarterfinal stage after a first leg 1-1 draw saw them come into the game with the aggregate score being level.
It was the Red Devils who took the lead after Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired a shot from range. The lead did not last too long, as Anderlecht pulled one back soon. However, it took a moment of Marcus Rashford’s brilliance for United to take the lead once again after star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic was substituted due to a knee injury.
Somehow, Manchester United made it to the semifinals and the draw has taken place today, and it was decided as to who will play who in the penultimate round of the Europa League.
While Manchester United are set to take on Celta Vigo, Lyon and Ajax face each other in the other semifinal fixture. Celta Vigo beat Genk to progress beyond the quarters and surely, united cannot underestimate the Spanish team.
Fans took their twitter handle to express their view on the draw, and it was as exciting as the quarterfinal games that took place on Thursday.
