The UEFA Europa League returns today as Premier League giants Manchester United welcome Roma of Serie A in this semi-final clash. Don't miss a moment with our Man United vs Roma live stream guide.

Manchester United will be hoping they can go one step further in this year's Europa League after exiting the competition at the semi-final stage last season at the hands of eventual winners Sevilla.

United are favorites to lift the trophy, dispatching La Liga sides Real Sociedad and Granada en route to the semi-finals as well as Roma's Serie A compatriots AC Milan.

For Roma, a win against Man United would result in the club's first European cup final since the early '90s. Roma's route to the semis saw the team breeze past Braga and Shakhtar Donetsk before a tough test in the last round against Ajax.

The Red Devils come into today's first-leg game on the back of a 13-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League that stretches as far back as January. The Europa League remains the club's most likely chance at silverware this season with the domestic league title all but wrapped up by local rivals Man City and a recent exit from the FA Cup at the quarter-final stage.

It's not such a good run of form for the Giallorossi who arrive at Old Trafford today with just one victory in their last seven league games. In their last outing, Paulo Fonseca's men were on the wrong side of a 3-2 scoreline against Serie A strugglers Cagliari leaving them off the pace in the chase for European qualification spots for next year.

It's all to play for in this UEFA Europa League semi-final first-leg clash. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of the game between Manchester United and Roma with our guide below.
