Showing Wednesday 24 May, 7.45pm: Ajax v Manchester United, Europa League final

Manchester United can secure a place in next season’s Champions League and add the only major trophy they have never won by beating Dutch side Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm.

Jose Mourinho’s side finished sixth in the Premier League but will join Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City in the group stage if they win.

The match comes two days after a suicide bombing in Manchester that killed 22 people. United will wear black armbands. A minute’s silence will also be held before the match.

Liverpool have also qualified for the Champions League after finishing fourth in the Premier League, but must win a two-legged play-off to reach the groups.

Ajax have not played in a European final since 1996, while defeat for United would cost the club £50m in missed revenue.
