Thursday 15 April
Man Utd 2-0 Granada (agg 4-0)
Slavia Prague 0-4 Arsenal (agg 1-5)
Roma 1-1 Ajax (agg 3-2)
Villarreal 2-1 Dinamo Zagreb (agg 3-1)
Edinson Cavani set Manchester United on course for a comfortable victory against Granada as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side reached the Europa League semi-finals for the second successive season.
Marcus Rashford’s fine goal and a late Bruno Fernandes penalty in Spain last week put the Red Devils in control of the quarter-final tie heading into Thursday’s reverse fixture at an empty Old Trafford.
United extinguished any hope of a remarkable Granada turnaround when veteran Cavani volleyed home in the sixth minute, with Jesus Vallejo’s late own goal wrapping up a 2-0 win on the night, 4-0 on aggregate.
Arsenal turned on the style to ease past Slavia Prague and set up a Europa League semi-final tie against former head coach Unai Emery’s Villarreal.
With the tie finely-poised following a 1-1 home draw a week ago, the Gunners put in one of their best showings under Mikel Arteta to win 4-0 in Prague.
Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring as his fine Europa League campaign continues, with an Alexandre Lacazette brace and a Bukayo Saka strike more than enough to see them through.
Edin Dzeko’s second-half strike secured Roma’s Europa League semi-final spot against a dominant Ajax in an entertaining second leg at Stadio Olimpico.
Brian Brobbey gave the visitors hope with a smart finish and Ajax were on top for much of the second period before Dzeko struck against the run of play to secure a 3-2 aggregate win.
Roma will face Man United in the last four after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men eased past Granada.
Unai Emery set up a last four meeting with former club Arsenal after his Villarreal side dumped out Dinamo Zagreb.
Leading 1-0 from the first leg in Croatia, Paco Alcacer and the in-form Gerard Moreno put the hosts two up before Mislav Orsic pulled one back in the second half.
The Spaniards held on to secure a 3-1 aggregate win and set up that tantalising clash with Arsenal.
