LIVE STREAM AS Roma vs Manchester United.
In the history of the UEFA Cup/Europa League, of the 225 previous instances of a team losing the first-leg of a two-legged knockout tie by 4+ goals, just two have progressed; FK Partizan v QPR in the 1984-85 last 32 and Real Madrid v Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 1985-86 last 16.
Roma’s 6-2 defeat to Manchester United in the first leg was only the fourth time they have conceded 6+ goals in a match in major European competition, with two coming against the Red Devils (also 1-7 in April 2007).
Manchester United have won five of their last six meetings with Roma in all competitions, drawing the other 1-1 in December 2007.
Manchester United is looking to progress to their first major final in any competition under Ole Gunnar Solskjær; they have previously been knocked out of all four cup semi-finals under the Norweigan (2x League Cup, 1x FA Cup, 1x UEFA Europa League).
Roma haven’t lost both legs of a two-legged knockout tie in major European competition (excluding qualifiers) since the 2015-16 UEFA Champions League last 16 versus Real Madrid, while they last did so in the UEFA Cup/Europa League in the 2009-10 last 16 v Panathinaikos.
