“Roma suffered a 3-2 defeat towards Cagliari, not the perfect preparation going right into a Europa League semi-final first leg.
“That mentioned, I believe the Italians would accept that form of consequence right here. They are going to be all too conscious of how essential it’s to take a objective or two again to Italy.
“For all I’ve been massively impressed by United on the highway this season, they’ve made a marked enchancment on house soil over the past month or so.
“It’s now ten house matches unbeaten for the Crimson Devils, and on an evening the place I believe targets will probably be at a premium, I reckon will probably be Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s aspect that go into the second leg with a slight benefit. It’s 1-0 Manchester United for me.”

“It goes with out saying that the tie carries some additional spice with Unai Emery within the house dugout. The Europa League veteran would love nothing greater than to make it to the ultimate on the expense of his former aspect.
“For Arsenal, they’ve received simply two of their final eight aggressive outings, nonetheless, the Gunners’ are unbeaten in seven on the highway.
“I believe this could possibly be one of many extra open semi-finals in Europe this week, however given the type of the house aspect, I reckon it’ll be the Yellow Submarine who go into the second leg with the benefit. It’s 2-1 Villarreal for me.”
