UEFA Europa League semi-final is upon us Celta Vigo will take on Manchester United at the Estadio de Balaidos on Thursday night. This is a great opportunity for United as they would looking forward to taking that lead in this first leg of the fixture.
United also knows that this is a fantastic chance of making it to the UEFA Champions League in the next season. If they manage to defeat Celta Vigo in the semi-final, then Jose Mourinho and his Red Army will be one step away from making it to the Champions League yet again.
The Portuguese manager has confirmed that as many as five first-team players will be available for selection against Celta Vigo tonight. It would mark the return of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the squad. But it remains to be seen whether all of them would get to play on Thursday.
Celta Vigo, on the other hand, have lost three La Liga matches in a row. But that did not make an impact on their European form. They are unbeaten in their last five matches with four wins and a draw. It is understandable that they are prioritising the UEFA Europa League. Also, this will be the first time that these two sides will be playing a competitive game against each other.
Celta Vigo: Alvarez; Mallo, Cabral, Fontas, Jonny; Hernandez, Radoja, Wass; Aspas, Guidetti, Sisto.
Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Blind, Carrick, Darmian; Herrera, Pogba; Lingard, Mkhitaryan, Mata; Rashford.
