Kanchelskis analyzed the defeat of Roma by Manchester United

The ex-Mancunian spoke about the UEL semi-finals.

Andrei Kanchelskis talked about the Europa League semi-final match between Manchester United and Roma. Let us remind you that the Mancunians defeated their rival with a score of 6: 2. For the Roman team, the tournament is over.

“I don’t think Manchester United will lose 0-5 or 1-5 in Rome, but the final is still ahead. Of course, Roma was heavily influenced by the goalkeeper’s injury; she conceded two completely unnecessary goals. Still, the substitute goalkeeper’s fault is here – he was not ready. In addition, they have problems in defense, many players were injured.

By the way, I think there shouldn’t have been a penalty kick against Roma. With VAR, the judges began to judge worse than before. Then everything was clear and clear, but now they are afraid of everything, any touch in the penalty area is already a penalty. Chris Smalling accidentally hit Edinson Cavani as he knocked the ball out. In a sliding tackle on a wet field, I caught my leg – I think it was a wrong referee’s decision. And so, “MU” began to score, caught the game, began to play brighter. I feel sorry for “Roma”, but she herself is to blame. They were 2: 1, it was possible to be patient, to close.

Of course, the fact that the Mancunians turned the game upside down is encouraging to me. The same Cavani was very strong in front, loaded the opponents. Almost all of them looked good. I think that Roma played very poorly, especially in the second half. The return match is already without a chance for her “, – Kanchelskis told Gazeta.ru journalists.


The return match Roma – Manchester United will take place on May 6, beginning at 22:00 Moscow time.
