Tip Manchester United FC - FC Copenhagen
Manchester United will be confident of reaching the last four of the Europa League. They travel to Germany to take on FC Copenhagen and are the deserved favourites to progress. The winner of this tie takes on either Wolverhampton Wanderers or Sevilla in the last four, could it be an all-Premier League clash? Possibly but Wolves have a far tougher battle on their hands than the in-form Manchester United. They don't have the pressure on them to win this competition to secure a place in next season's Champions League. That's already in the bag after their third place finish in the Premier League. United beat LASK 2-1 on Wednesday to reach the last eight. Several key players were rested so they will be raring to go in this match. United have only lost one of their last 23 games (the FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea) and are unbeaten in their last five Europa League games. 12 goals have been scored in their last three games in this competition. They have just one defeat in the Europa League this season, a 2-1 loss at Astrana but they go into this game in much better form.
FC Copenhagen got past Turkish Champions Istanbul Basaksehir in the last sixteen. They drew the away leg 1-0 before a convincing 3-0 home win in Denmark. Unlike United, they do need to win this competition to make it into the next Champions League. They finished second in the Danish Superliga Championship group, so will at least be back in the Europa League next season. They have just finished their 2019/20 season and only won two of their last eight games. Copenhagen started this season in the Champions League. They only won one round before losing on penalties to Red Star Belgrade. That took them into the Europa League where they finished second in their group behind Malmo FF. The last 32 saw them defeat Celtic so this won't be that easy a passage for United. The English side are in good form though and look to have too much up front for their Danish opponents. Back them to win and be ahead at both half and full time.
