Manchester United were knocked out of their 20/21 UCL Group, which meant that they were able to enter the 20/21 UEFA Europa League in the knockout phase, and have since made light work of Real Sociedad, AC Milan, Granada CF and AS Roma to reach the match set to be played at the Stadion Energa Gdansk in Poland.
