While the club seemed set on completing another bleak season, Manchester United negotiated very well the return to business after confinement. Unbeaten in the Premier League since the resumption, the Red Devils are well placed in the standings and they even finished on the championship podium behind the two top names Liverpool and Manchester City. Paul Pogba’s partners have also put an end to this exercise by gaining the upper hand over Leicester (0-2). In this C3, the Mancunians finished at the top of their group L ahead of AZ Alkmaar, Partizan Belgrade, and Astana. Easy winners of Club Bruges in the round of 16 (1-1 then 5-0), they took the measure of a surprising LASK team in the previous round (0-5 in March then 2-1 last Wednesday).
FC Copenhagen, meanwhile, once again had to hand over the title to their Danish rivals FC Midtjylland. In the end, the players of the capital finished quite far from the champions with 14 points behind despite two last victories against AaB (0-1) and Nordsjaelland (2-1) at the end of last month. In this Europa League, the teammates of former Guingamp goalkeeper Kalle Johnsson have done quite well so far. After finishing 2nd in Group B behind Malmoe but ahead of Dynamo Kyiv and Lugano, they knocked down Celtic Glasgow (1-1, 1-3). Beaten in March by Istanbul in the first leg of the Round of 16, they took their revenge (3-0) and therefore offered a ticket to these quarter-finals.

The staff for Manchester United vs FC Copenhagen

Like Wednesday night, Manchester United will have to do without substitute defenders Jones and Tuanzebe, and the important left-back Shaw who are unable to hold their rank. Ideally, Ole Gunnar Solskjær should start his trio of strikers Greenwood, Rashford, Martial, supported by Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes. Note that Wednesday, Anthony Martial scored 23rd goal of the season in all competitions.
FC Copenhagen should not be able to count on its international midfielder Viktor Fischer, still stuck in the infirmary with the Icelandic international defender Sigurdsson. On the other hand, the Uruguayan striker Santos (7 goals) should return from suspension. Against Istanbul BB, forward Wind was decisive by scoring a brace.
