Roma have left themselves with a tough task
It wasn’t supposed to be this scoreline the outcome of the first leg match after Roma went ahead 2-1 in the first half. All they had to do was defend their lead as all Italians are so capable of doing, but on the contrary Paulo Fonseca’s team completely fell apart and let in five second-half goals making it very hard on themselves for the second leg as they need to win 4-0 to qualify for the final.
In 13 matches in the Europa League, Roma have nine wins two draws and two losses. They haven’t lost at the Stadio Olimpico registering four wins and two draws. In the six games played at the Olimpico Roma have scored 15 goals. They beat Cluj 5-0 in the group stage. The Giallorossi would love a similar result on Thursday but Manchester United are a much tougher opponent.

The Red Devils would love a repeat of their triumph in the Europa League in 2017. After a huge first-leg win Solskjaer’s team must not the mistake of thinking of the final.
