Manchester Untied have been drawn against Celta Vigo in the semi-final of the Europa League.
Jose Mourinho’s side edged past Anderlecht in last night’s quarter final after Marcus Rashford scored in extra time to secure a 2-1 aggregate victory.
The Europa League now looks to offer Jose Mourinho and his expensively assembled side their best opportunity of qualifying for next season’s Champions League, but they will have to defeat the Spanish side over two legs if they hope to make the final in Stockholm.

Celta are currently in 10th place in La Liga but have enjoyed an impressive run to the last four of this competition and edged out Genk 4-3 on aggregate in their quarter-final tie.
Iago Aspas, the former Liverpool striker who has 24 goals to his name this term, will pose the main threat to United’s hopes, while they should be wary of a side that has beaten both Real Madrid and Barcelona already this season.
United will travel to the north west of Spain for the first leg on May 4, before hosting Eduardo Berizzo’s side in the return match at Old Trafford a week later.
In the other semi-final Ajax will take on Lyon after the French side beat Besiktas in an epic quarter-final on Thursday.
