Europa League: Ajax, Manchester United Reach first ever finals

Ajax and Manchester United have qualified for their first ever UEFA Europa League final.

Ajax booked a ticket for the Europa League final despite losing the second leg of their tie against Lyon 3-1.

The Amsterdam side won 5-4 on aggregate following a 4-1 first leg home win.


On the other hand,  Manchester United reached their first European final since 2011, but also booked a place in the Europa League final for the first time.

 

Jose Mourinho‘s side won the first leg away from home and looked good for the win at Old Trafford on Thursday night but were pegged back.

 

Eventually, the Red Devils went through 2-1 on aggregate and it marks Mourinho‘s second final since taking charge at the Club this season.

 

Three red cards were issued in both game with two players getting their marching orders in the Man United vs. Celta Vigo match.

 

The city of Stockholm will host the finals on 24 May.
