Manchester United will be squaring off against Copenhagen in the first quarterfinal of the Europa League 2019-20.
The Red Devils are back on the quarterfinal stage to come close to the quest for Europa League glory. The English club has won five matches out of seven in Europa League, including the 2nd leg victory against LASK courtesy of goals from Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. The draw is relaxing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the quarterfinal stage as they enter into Rhein Energie Stadium with the tag of favorites.
Meanwhile, Copenhagen are heading into this game after winning the aggregate game against Istanbul Basaksehir. Stale Solbakken’s men have reached into the quarterfinal of the competition for the first time in their history. The Danish outfit secured a 3-0 win on Wednesday after losing the first leg in Turkey. They are the underdogs and anything can happen at this stage if United have an off day.
