Jose Mourinho’s side sneaked past Anderlecht in the quarter-final with an aggregate score of 3-2, thanks to Marcus Rashford’s extra-time strike at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
Celta Vigo beat Belgian side Genk to reach the semis and feature former Liverpool corner-taker Iago Aspas.
Mourinho is sweating over the fitness of Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for United’s European run-in, saying he was “not optimistic” about the injuries they sustained against Anderlecht.
In the other semi-final, Ajax will play Lyon after overcoming Schalke in extra time.
