Hooligan's Daily: Manchester United to Europa semis, but they lose Zlatan

Manchester United survive into the semis of the Europa League, where they certainly figure to be the favorites to win it all. Some kind of upset could still occur, but they are the best team on paper. They did lose Zlatan Ibrahimovic in this one, though. He left with a knee injury and the early reports are "fairly negative."

Headlines
The Spanish FA has upheld their suspension of Barcelona's Neymar that will keep him from Sunday's El Clasico against Real Madrid. He had been sent off a couple weeks ago for a second yellow and the bonus suspension was for sarcastic actions as the referee showed him the red card. It was his first sending off since coming to Barcelona four years ago.

Bayern Munich are soon to be crowned German Champions again, but they will have to finish off their title without all-world goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Neuer broke bones in his foot during one of Ronaldo's back breaking goals in Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal. He will miss the rest of the season.
