Football: UEFA Europa League finalists to be revealed

By Satuk Bugra Kutlugun

ANKARA (AA) - Second-leg matches in the UEFA Europa League semifinals will be played on Thursday evening, with Lyon taking on Ajax and Manchester United looking to hold their advantage at home against Celta Vigo.

Last Thursday, United defeated Celta Vigo 1-0 in Spain, thanks to youngster Marcus Rashford scoring a brilliant free-kick, beating Vigo goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.

United will look to avoid making any mistakes at Old Trafford to book their ticket to the final in Stockholm.

Celta Vigo have a mountain to climb as they must win away with a score of at least 1-0.

United are unbeaten in nine consecutive Europa League games. The match will start 7.05 p.m. (1905GMT) time.

In the other match of the evening, Lyon will look to overcome a 4-1 first-leg defeat against Ajax, looking to get the home crowd behind them in France.

Among the semi-finalists Ajax is the only team to have lifted the trophy before, back in 1992.

The Dutch side is now only 90 minutes away from their first European final since 1996.
