Manchester United will face Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the Europa League, while Ajax were paired with Lyon in Friday’s draw.

United needed an extra-time winner from teenager Marcus Rashford to progress 3-2 on aggregate against Anderlecht, while Celta beat Genk to progress to the last four.

Celta were handed a home first leg – set to be played on May 4 – and the return match will be played at Old Trafford a week later.

In the other semi-final tie, knocking out Schalke has earned Ajax the chance to take on Lyon, with the first leg to be played in Amsterdam.

The victor of Ajax v Lyon was drawn as the nominal home side for the final, which will be played at the Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden.

With the winners of the Europa League earning a qualifying spot in next season’s Champions League, all four clubs will be keen to secure a place in the May 24 showpiece.
