Despite a loss for one and a draw for the other, Manchester United and Villarreal managed to advance to the Europa League final at the expense of AS Roma and Arsenal.
Manchester United and Villarreal will face each other for the Europa League trophy, previously won by Sevilla FC from Bounou, En-Nesyri and El Haddadi.
Manchester United booked their place in the final despite losing 3-2 at Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night, after winning the first leg 6-2 at Old Trafford last week.
Edinson Cavani scored twice in Manchester and doubled his count against the Italian giants at Stadio Olimpico, tying a continental record of 34 years.
Cavani is the first player to score two or more goals in both sets of a European semi-final since Klaus Allofs for Cologne in the 1985-86 UEFA Cup against KSV Waregem.

For its part, Villarreal, now led by former Gunners boss Unai Emery, will play in the first Europa League final in its history after beating Arsenal in the first leg (2-1).
The yellow sub, as Villarreal is known, took revenge for their 2006 Champions League semi-final loss to Arsenal, who missed the opportunity to win in this second leg despite numerous chances that had been offered to him.
