Celta to face Man United semi-final

Celta Vigo have been paired with Manchester United in the last four of the Europa League after progressing past Genk.

The Galicians are in their first European semi-final after seeing off Shakhtar Donestk, FC Krasnodar and Genk in the Europa League knockout rounds, but face the competition favourites in the last four.

The two have never before clashed in European competition, and the game ensures one of Swedish striking pair Zlatan Ibrahimovic or John Guidetti would see their team’s in the final in their native country.

The other semi-final sees Ligue 1 club Lyon take on Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam.

The first leg of the semi-finals will be played on Thursday 4th May, with the return legs being held on 11th May.

This year’s final will be held at the Friend’s Arena in Stockholm on 24th May.
