Celta eased past Genk 4-3 on aggregate in the quarter-finals, and while no semi-finalist should be underestimated, they’re perhaps the most favourable draw United could have received.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW LIVE. Nevertheless, the Europa League is a tremendous piece of silverware to win and comes with the added bonus of Champions League qualification. Winning the competition would cap an outstanding first season for manager Jose Mourinho and make their difficult battle to finish in the Premier League’s top four almost inconsequential. Despite being handed a fairly kind draw for the quarter-finals in the form of Anderlecht, United laboured and needed extra time in the second leg to progress 3-2 on aggregate.
Their biggest threat comes from former Liverpool forward Iago Aspas, who has enjoyed a prolific campaign and sits on 23 goals, five of which have been scored in the Europa League. Celta can punish United if they don’t take their chances. Lyon have scored 19 goals in the knockout phase of this year’s competition since dropping out of the Champions League. They recorded an 11-2 aggregate win over AZ Alkmaar in the round of 32, a 5-4 aggregate win over Roma in the last 16 and a 3-3 draw with Besiktas over two legs in the quarter-finals, with the French side advancing on penalties.
