Manchester United booked themselves a place in the Europa League final with a 2-1 aggregate victory over Celta Vigo after a fraught end to a tie that came a little too close to comfort for numerous home fans.
Jose Mourinho's men led 1-0 following last week's trip to Balaidos and they looked set to ease into the final after Marouane Fellaini struck early at the Theatre of Dreams but Celta were a threat throughout and Roncaglia equalised five minutes from time to trigger a tense finale.
United appeared to be coasting to victory following Marouane Fellaini's early header before Celta set up a tense finale courtesy of Facundo Roncaglia's strike and nearly snatched an unlikely aggregate victory in the dying embers.
Guidetti had a chance to win the tie for Celta with the last kick of the game but failed to control the ball six metres from goal.
Mourinho's charges managed to see out the closing stages of the second half, as they progress to the final after winning the tie 2-1 on aggregate. With all the effort we put in, it was a great shame not to reach the final. We couldn't have played any better, I don't think.
Then, with seconds left to play, Celta caught United's defence on the hop to forge themselves one final opportunity, only for Guidetti to fail to react quickly enough to steer Claudio Beauvue's overhit cross into the back of the net...
Roncaglia and United defender Eric Bailly were both red-carded in the 87th minute for separate incidents in a mass melee, meaning Bailly will miss the final through suspension.

Baylor Women's Golf in Fifth Place at Athens Regional
Anna Pool of Central Oklahoma, which is four shots off the lead, is the top individual through 18 holes, tied with Concordia-St. She is among a four-way tie for 77 place, as the Fréjus, France native was one of six individual competitors in the field.
On the subject of Bailly's red card, Mourinho added that his star centre-back had been "naive", suggesting that Facundo Roncaglia, who was also dismissed, had deliberately provoked him. "We now lose a very important player for the final, and we don't have many".
There has been much chopping and changing to the back four, partly due to injuries and partly due to Mourinho's uncertainty about whether the likes of Luke Shaw, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian can be trusted to produce good performances regularly.
Both teams ended up squeezing through to the May 24 showpiece in Stockholm after nervy finishes to both second leg matches in the semifinals.
"From this weekend they'll have 12 days to prepare, but we have three matches and not many players". Manchester United drew the match but go through to the final 2-1.
"The final means an opportunity to win a trophy, to be back in the Champions League, and to end the season in the ideal way because it is the last match of the season". It was an open game at home, all the pressure on our side.
Iago Aspas, who had spent a thin time under Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, remarked: "we have one more bullet that we want to use well".
