Early team news for Roma v United in Europa League
Manchester United are looking to complete the job against Roma by reaching the Europa League final.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds came from behind to win the first leg 6-2 at Old Trafford last Thursday, with a devastating display of attacking football.
Despite the four-goal lead, nobody will be taking anything for granted as the two sides meet to decide who will face Villarreal or Arsenal in the final later this month.
Both strikers are in red-hot form and it will be interesting to see who starts at the Stadio Olimpico, while Eric Bailly is available again and an option to come into defence if the manager decides to freshen things up.
