Many of the player’s have called this match “the biggest of our carreer” and big things are to expect from this Europe League final tonight. Manchester United have their last opportunity to enter next year’s Champions League, and if not it will be a huge setback for the club.

But not only football has been on the paper for the Manchester club. Two days ago 22 people were killed in a bombing of the Manchester Arena during a concert, which has made its marks throughout the whole world and especially in Manchester.

There are lots of possible stars for tonight’s match with Paul Pogba, player of the year Ander Herrera and starlet Marcus Rashford being some of them for Manchester United.

For Ajax Amsterdam their Danish wonderkid Kasper Dolberg is to do Manchester United a lot of harm, as Davy Klaasen and Lasse Schöne will have their work setting up the youngsters from Ajax.

Both teams are in search of success with none of them winning their respective leagues. Ajax finished just behind Feyenord and the Europe League final could secure them a great season after all. Manchester United on the other hand could well categorize their season as horrible, if they do fail to win and by that not qualify for the group stages in next years Champions League.

Possible line-ups:

Manchester United: Romero; Valencia, Jones, Blind, Darmian; Fellaini, Herrera, Pogba; Lingard, Rashford, Mkhitaryan.

Ajax Amsterdam: Onana; Veltman, De Ligt, Sanchez, Riedewald; Klaasen, Schöne, Ziyech; Traore, Dolberg, Younes.
