Copenhagen will face Istanbul Basaksehir in the second leg of Europa League last-16 tie.

Copenhagen and Istanbul Basaksehir will lock horns in Europa League. The winner of this game will face Manchester United in a most certain way. United sets their last-16 tie with LASK on Wednesday. Both sides had met back in March this year. Basaksehir had an advantage on their Wednesday rival courtesy of a late penalty from Edin Visca. Okan Buruk's side recently won their first-ever Turkish league title to earn the place in the Champions League for next season. Meanwhile, Copenhagen are heading into this game after losing the title to FC Midtjylland by a 14-point margin.
