English club, Manchester united qualified for the Europa league final with a 1-1 draw, winning 2-1 on aggregate.
The game was a tight fisted game, with two players,Eric Bailly and Facundo Roncaglia, sent off.
Argentine Roncaglia had just levelled on the night for Celta five minutes from time when a brawl ensued, the defender and Bailly dismissed for pushes that sparked a mass confrontation between the sets of players.
Celta had a chance to advance at the death but John Guidetti failed to turn Claudio Beauvue’s square pass into the back of the net and book a place in the final in the city of his birth, with Jose Mourinho’s side holding on to set up a date with Ajax by the skin of their teeth.
It was by no means vintage from United at any point and their start was particularly anxious, but they gave themselves a two-goal aggregate cushion in the 17th minute – Marouane Fellaini turning in Marcus Rashford’s sumptuous cross for the club’s 100th goal of the season.
