Manchester United edged out As Roma in a thrilling semi-final encounter to book a place in the Europa League final. They will face Villarreal which knocked out Arsenal.
These two sides have got history between them. The last four previous encounters have been barren draws. Maybe this final will be different and we would see goals.

The Europa League final will be held in Gdansk on May 26. The same day in 1999 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored a last minute winner to hand United the Champions League title. The same Solskjaer will be leading United in a European final as a manager, the first Red Devil to to so. Will history repeat itself?
The same day also happens to be Sir Matt Busby's birthday. Sir Matt Busby is an iconic figure at the club, remember the Busby Babes, the Munich air disaster, the name Busby must be mentioned when referring to this events.
Let's forget about the theories, Manchester United are a better side than Villarreal currently based on form. The forward line comprising with the likes of the in-form Edison Cavani will be too hot to handle.
Let's hope the gods of Manchester won't be asleep as Solskjaer aims to quench United's thirst for trophies.
