Man United stumble into Europa League final
Manchester United stumbled into the Europa League final after conceding a late goal in a tension-filled 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo that ended with both teams having a man sent off yesterday.
United advanced 2-1 on aggregate, with Marcus Rashford's winner in the first leg last week ultimately proving the difference.
Marouane Fellaini headed home Rashford's cross to hand United a 17th-minute lead at Old Trafford, giving the English team a two-goal cushion.
Celta dominated the second half as United dropped deep, and Facundo Roncaglia headed home in the 85th minute to set up a nervy finish.
Roncaglia and United defender Eric Bailly were both red-carded in the 87th for separate incidents in a mass melee and Celta, needing just one goal to advance on away goals, missed late chances to cause a huge upset.
The biggest opportunity fell to John Guidetti with seconds left, but the former Manchester City striker couldn't wrap his foot around the ball with a goal at his mercy.
United will play Ajax in the final in Stockholm on May 24.
