Anyway, thanks for your company. Ta-ra.

Villarreal have reached their first European final! They've drawn 0-0 at Arsenal and Unai Emery has stuck one on his old club, who won't be playing European football next season. The Yellow Submarine meet the Red Devils in Gdansk; the previous four games between the sides have finished goalless.

FULL-TIME: Roma 3-2 Manchester United agg 5-8 United are in the final of the Europa League! That was a brilliant tie and in it, they were brilliant in patches. But Roma played some great stuff too, and earned their win tonight.
90+4'
There've been 35 attempts on goal, nearly 20 of them on target.
90+2'
Williams slides in to win a fifty-fifty with Santon, gets there first, takes the ball, then nicks the man. That's not even a foul, but he's booked.
90'
There'll be four added minutes.

United will fancy themselves to beat whichever side they meet in the final and with good reason - they're better than both. But they're also well capable of losing to both if their defence is careless and their finishing profligate. Overall, though, their sharpness going forward will be a lot for either of those sides.
89'
Matic scoops a ball over the Roam line for Williams, who ducks inside and, confronted by a difficult bouncing ball, shanks a shot wide of the far post.
87'
By the looks of things United will meet Villarreal next - they still lead Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate - but one goal for Arsenal will put them through.

Mata replaces Fernandes.

GOAL! Roma 3-2 Manchester United (Zalewski) agg 5-8 Ah! On debut! Santon goes down the left and crosses to the back post, where Zalewski semi-shanks home a volley off Telles. It looked like someone in the middle was offside, but no one seems mithered.
82'
United have a hard game at Villa on Sunday, and they're mainly trying to rest up for that now, knocking the ball around till they're forced to take a risk.
81'
This has been one of the best European ties I've seen this season. Some of the defending has been iffy, but the general pace, tempo and imagination of the attacking has been superb.
79'
Yeah, both sides have accepted that this is did.

Two changes for Roma, who know the jig is up: Dzeko and Pedro depart with Mayoral and Zalewski replacing them.

Pelegrini, who's had a good tie, drives towards the United flocks and flicks in Mkhitaryan, outside him; he lashes low and hard, cracking the base of the post.
73'
United send on Rashford for Cavani, who's got a final to not be suspended for.

Greenwood gets involved in some argy-bargy with someone, Cristante I think, and Cavani charges over in alacritous style to protect his young charge, plaster on his cheek, hair everywhere. Basically, FIT. He and Karsdorp shove one another, and the ref then books both.

Roma send on Santon for Peres.

Off we go again. That's how long it took to confirm Cavani was onside, but it looked a lot clearer than many you see - Cavani knew he'd timed it, too.
