Manchester United will face Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League final in Poland on May 26, reaching a first major final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
An inspired goalkeeping performance by David de Gea ensured United was only beaten 3-2 by Roma in a wild second leg of the Europa League semifinals, allowing the English team to complete an 8-5 victory on aggregate.
Yet Solskjaer was critical of his team for giving Roma so many chances at the Stadio Olimpico to turn around a semifinal that looked over after United scored five second-half goals to win the first leg 6-2 last week.
“We played one very good half at Old Trafford that got us through,” he said. “The second half today was disappointing. Very, very poor.”
Villarreal will be United’s opponent in the May 26 final in the Polish city of Gdansk after beating Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate in the other semifinal. The second leg finished 0-0 on Thursday.
The venue of this year’s final, Gdansk Stadium, located on Poland’s Baltic coast, has a 41,620 seating capacity.
But Polish authorities confirmed to UEFA that a capacity of 25% of the stadium or up to 9,500 spectators will be permitted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
