Marouane Fellaini headed a 17th-minute goal to give United a two-goal cushion on aggregate, building on Marcus Rashford's victor from the first leg. At home, Lyon is significantly good, but we have to consider the fact that 2 of the recent 4 games has been lost and one more is like if Lyon's win they are winning by the huge margin of 3 or more goals. Three minutes later, Guidetti failed to score on one final chance inside the box. At half-time I told my players not to panic.
Lyon looked to be out of contention after teenage forward Kasper Dolberg put the visitors ahead in the 27th minute to make it 5-1 on aggregate.
The finalAs things stand, they only have two players unavailable for the final against Manchester United - 21-year-old defender Daley Sinkgraven will miss the tie with a knee injury, while defender Nick Viergever is suspended.
He's been linked with Manchester United and he could be facing them in the Europa League final later this month, so what better way to prepare than this ice-cool finish from Kasper Dolberg? The victor will secure a berth in the 2017-2018 Champions League group stage.
In the end, it was a victory that had the hallmarks of a classic Jose Mourinho success rather than the type Man United fans became accustomed to during numerous greatest moments of the Alex Ferguson era.
Ajax coach Peter Bosz said after the match that his young side's return to a European final was "a victory for football".
First of all, in order to understand these two different results and game styles, we need to first understand what happened in Netherlands. However, Ajax are a quality attacking unit and coupled with Lyon's inability to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season, we could very well see Ajax score one, if not more on Thursday. They claimed a Champions League crown in the 1994-95 season under former United manager Louis van Gaal and also won the Uefa Cup, the Europa League's predecessor, in 1991/92.
United are unbeaten in nine consecutive Europa League games.
