The first leg takes place at Old Trafford. The second leg will take place next week (May 6th) in Italy.

United last played against Roma in 2008 and won 3-0 overall on the way to winning the Champions League.

The previous year was even more unforgettable: United won the second leg at Old Trafford 7-1.

United had a bad record in the last semifinals under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and lost four. This two-legged tie gives the side an opportunity to correct this.
