Match status: 2020/21 Europa League – Semi-finals
Kick-off: Thursday 06 May 2021, 07:00pm CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Roma have been going through a rough patch both on and off the pitch, and the nadir of this spell would come last week after their capitulating defeat at Manchester in the opening leg of this tie. And this disappointment was followed by another defeat on Sunday, but this time in the league.
Manchester United will be in a more comfortable position, as they make a trip to Italy for the second leg of this semifinal clash. After off-the-pitch problems with the club faithful led to the disruption of their Premier League match on Sunday, it means the squad will be well rested for this clash.
AS Roma vs Manchester United Team News
An unimpressive first-half showing from Manchester United saw them trailing 2-1 at halftime after goals from Lorenzo Pellegrini and Edin Dzeko cancelled out Bruno Fernandes’s early opener. Anyone would pay anything to be in the dressing room during Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team talk at halftime, as the hosts came out firing on all cylinders.
A rampaging second-half display saw Manchester United score four goals – including a brace for ageless Edinson Cavani – within 45 minutes, and simultaneously plunged Roma’s hopes of reaching the final into great doubt. But fingers remain crossed in the second leg, as Roma is one of the few teams with a pedigree of pulling unexpected comebacks in European competitions.
That said, Roma’s horrendous form is one that’s raising a lot of eyebrows at the moment. The Giallorossi have gone without victory in their last six matches in all competitions, including four defeats during this spell.
Paulo Fonseca, who would be leaving his role as Roma’s manager at the end of the campaign, would want to bow out of the job on some kind of high, albeit surmounting this uphill of a task would seem a stretch. And replacing the Portuguese manager at the dugout is another Portuguese tactician and Manchester United’s former boss Jose Mourinho.
In the aftermath of their involvement in the breakaway European Super League, footballs fans and club faithfuls, particularly in English football, were incensed by the ‘capitalist’ idea and expressed their grievances mostly through social media. But United fans took it up a notch on Sunday, and demonstrated at Old Trafford before the kickoff of their Premier League clash with Liverpool.
While the Premier League title is totally off the mark at this point in the season, the Red Devils are firmly on track to the showpiece event in Gdansk later this month. Having gotten eliminated from every other competition, the Europa League represents a good, albeit the only way of crowning their relatively good season.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will warn his side against complacency on this trip to Stadio Olimpico, although he will be excited to break his duck, having lost four consecutive semifinals as United’s manager.
Injured or Suspended Players
AS Roma: Nicolo Zaniolo, Riccardo Calafiori, Jordan Veretout, Leonardo Spinazzola, Pau Lopez, Stephan El Shaarawy, Amadou Diawara and Carles Perez.
Manchester United: Phil Jones and Anthony Martial.

AS Roma vs Man United Predictions
While Roma have had little joy in their performances away from home, their home form is one to take consolation from, as Stadio Olimpico continues to retain its reputation as a stronghold.
That said, we don’t see them pulling off a comeback here, but they should get a goal or two, at best. We believe Manchester United will be too strong for them, especially after getting a full-week rest. Our wager is on both sides hitting the target.
