Villlarreal will take on Manchester United in the 2020/21 Europa League final.

Unai Emery steered the Spanish side to a first ever Europa League final at the expense of his former side, Arsenal, as they protected a 2-1 first lead to hold the Gunners to a goalless draw in north London.

United, meanwhille, were beaten in Italy but Edinson Cavani's brace prevented any real panic from setting in during an entertaining 3-2 defeat to Roma on Thursday night as the Red Devils triumphed 8-5 on aggregated.

The result means Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will contest his first cup final since taking charge at United with a real chance to claim silverware in the same competition United won back in 2017.
