Text size Aa Aa

Manchester United have qualified for the final of the Europa League after beating Celta Vigo 2-1 over two legs.

The English giants went ahead at Old Trafford through Marouane Fellaini’s headed goal in the 17th minute of the second leg, but the Spaniards equalised on 85 minutes to set up a nail-biting finish for
Jose Mourinho’s side.

Joining them in the final will be Dutch side Ajax, who beat Lyon 5-4 on aggregate.

The French team won 3-1 in a dramatic second leg clash, but it was not quite enough to overturn the 4-1 thrashing they received in Amsterdam in the first leg.

United and Ajax will contest the final in Stockholm on May 24.
