Roma v Man Utd live stream, BT Sport, Thursday 6 May, 8pm BST

Manchester United are in pole position to advance to the Europa League final after their 6-2 thrashing of Roma at Old Trafford last week.

United (opens in new tab) fell 2-1 behind to the Serie A side in the first leg, but a brace from Edinson Cavani and goals from Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood completed a roaring comeback. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side was delighted with the attacking quality his team showed, and the margin of their victory last Thursday leaves United in a comfortable position ahead of the return fixture.

Solskjaer will not be taking anything for granted, however, particularly as Roma (opens in new tab) came back from a similarly desperate position to knock Barcelona (opens in new tab) out of the Champions League at the Stadio Olimpico a few years back. 

It is strangely beneficial, though, that Sunday’s match against Liverpool (opens in new tab) was called off, even if that could cause fixture congestion problems down the line. United’s players will be better rested than their Roma counterparts, who lost 2-0 to Sampdoria in Serie A at the weekend.

That defeat all but ended Roma’s hopes of a top-six finish, with Paulo Fonseca’s side now just two points clear of eighth-placed Lazio (opens in new tab). Fonseca is expected to depart the Italian capital this summer, with Maurizio Sarri reportedly in line to replace him. Even an incredible comeback in this tie might not be enough to earn the Portuguese incumbent a stay of execution.

Anthony Martial is still missing for United, who remain without long-term absentee Phil Jones. Solskjaer is unlikely to take any risks and will therefore name a strong side at the Olimpico, although he could rest some of his key men in the second half if United are still in a commanding position.

Roma will be without Leonardo Spinazzola, Jordan Veretout, Pau Lopez, Marash Kumbulla, Stephan El Shaarawy, Riccardo Calafiori and Nicolo Zaniolo.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on BT Sport 2 (opens in new tab) in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Roma v Man Utd live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN NordLocker (opens in new tab)

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark Surfshark VPN (opens in new tab)

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
