The Europa League is into the last eight and the format now reverts to a classic knock-out for the remainder of this season.

Manchester United face FC Copenhagen, with the quarter-final taking place in Koln, Germany.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side will be heavy favourites, but need an improved showing on the second leg against LASK last week—though the team will likely be very different.

Copenhagen have never before been to the last eight of any European competition, so the season is already an enormous success.

Here’s all you need to know about the game.

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 8pm BST on Monday 10 August at Stadion Koln, in Germany.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Extra 1, as well as BT Sport Ultimate.

Subscribers can also stream the match on the BT Sport website and app.

Confirmed line-ups

United: Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Williams; Fred, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.

Copenhagen: Johnsson; Varela, Nelsson, Bjelland, Boilesen; Zeca, Stage; Biel, Wind, Falk; Daramy.

Odds

Man United — 2/7

Draw — 67/13

Copenhagen — 12/1

Prediction

The Danish side will be optimistic of springing a surprise after overcoming Celtic and Istanbul Basaksehir already in the competition, but if United’s first-choice side plays they have the attacking quality to ease their way through to the semi-finals.
