EUROPA: Semi finalist known

Manchester United v AS Roma and Arsenal v Villareal are the semi-final fixtures in the Europa League.

Manchester United are through to the semi-finals after beating Granada 2-0. Edison Cavani (6th) and Jesus Vallejo (90th, own goal) scored the two goals of the game. The Red Devils had won the first leg by the same score.

They will meet AS Roma in the semi-finals, who beat Ajax. The Italians won the first leg 2-1 and were held 1-1 by the Dutch. Brian Brobbey (49th) had given Ajax the lead, before Edin Dzeko (72nd) equalised. The result means Roma will now face Manchester United.

Arsenal, who were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Slavia Prague last week, finally got their act together. The Gunners largely dominated their opponents (4-0). Nicolas Pépé (18th), Alexander Lacazette (21st, 77th) and Bukayo Saka (24th) were the tormentors of Slavia. Arsenal will be reunited with their former manager, Unai Emery, whose club Villareal eliminated Dinamo Zagreb (2-1). Paco Alcacer (38th) and Gerard Moreno (42nd) gave the "yellow submarines" a 2-0 lead at the break. Mislav Orsic's 75th-minute goal did not change the situation.

The first leg of the semi-finals will take place on 29 April, while the second leg will be played on 6 May.
