United are 90 minutes away from the Europa League final in Gdansk unless they ship in four or more goals in Rome…
Manchester United will have full control in the UEFA Europa League semi-final second leg clash against AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico stadium on Thursday night, as the Premier League outfit registered a 6-2 win over the Italian side in the first leg at Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes (9′, 71′ pen) and Edinson Cavani (48′, 64′) nabbed doubles, while Paul Pogba (75′) and Mason Greenwood (86′) completed the tally, even though Lorenzo Pellegrini (15′ pen) and Edin Dzeko (33′) had put Roma up by a goal at one stage.
With the second leg set to take place soon, here’s how you can watch AS Roma vs Manchester United in India.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are expected to feature in the final on May 26 as they have a 6-2 lead from the first leg of the last-four tie. United will be in Premier League action again in the next two Wednesdays before their domestic campaign wraps up on May 23, but there is yet no confirmation of when the called off match against Liverpool will go ahead following Sunday’s postponement.
One can expect United to make as little changes as possible with Edison Cavani starting up front and Paul Pogba on the left of midfield while Phil Jones and Anthony Martial continue to miss out due to injuries.
Roma, in all probabilities, will be looking to salvage some pride in the second leg of the Europa League semi-finals but it will be interesting if the Giallorossi can keep it compact in the middle and sufficiently hit out on the break with players like Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Edin Dzeko to count on.
