Jose Mourinho’s men barely made it through, after being held to a 1-1 draw in the second leg of their semi-final tie against Celta Vigo.
The hosts came into the second leg at home with a 1-0 lead and doubled their advantage after Marcus Rashford crossed for Marouane Fellaini to head home in the first half.
However, United were not too sharp in attack and chose to sit back, allowing Celta Vigo to equalize through Facundo Sebastian Roncaglia. There were no more goals at Old Trafford, as both teams finished with 10 men.
In France, Lyon failed to find the crucial goal that would have seen them play Mourinho’s men in the final.
The Ligue 1 side won 3-1 on the night, but crashed out 5-4 on aggregate to Ajax.
