Eric Bailly sends warning to Roma over how Man United view semi-final second leg

2 min read

Eric Bailly says Manchester United are approaching their Europa League semi-final second leg against Roma looking for a victory.

United’s 6-2 win over Roma last week saw them take a huge step towards the final, giving them a big lead going into this week’s second leg in Italy.

Yet Bailly has shot down any notion of United taking it easy in the second leg, revealing that there is no chance of the side only playing for a draw.

Speaking to United’s website, Bailly said the squad can take confidence from their first leg display.

“It was a good performance,” he said.

“We started not bad, but then there were two goals for them. After that, in the second half, we came back strong, we won the game and it was a good win

“Six goals is not easy against Roma, it’s a very important step for the final, but it’s only one step.

“Now, we are focused for the second game in Italy and we want to win and do well and get to the final.

“We won 6-2 but in Italy we are not going there just to wait for a draw.

“No, we go to win again, that’s our mentality and what we need to have to be able to get to the final.”

United have an excellent away record this season and Bailly chalks that up to the resilience of the side.

Pointing to how the Reds came from 2-1 down in the first leg to net five times in the second half, Bailly believes the team are able to step up their game when under pressure.

He said: “I think it’s our focus and also we have trained well.

“We came back from the first half strongly and showed good mentality. We scored many goals and won the game and that was very important.”
