Manchester United continue their quest for silverware on Monday, with a Europa League quarterfinal against Copenhagen. Due to the effects of the coronavirus and the subsequent difficulties in hosting sporting events in Europe, UEFA has the made the remaining rounds of this season’s club tournaments into one-legged affairs at neutral grounds. Therefore the winner of Monday’s match at the RheinEnergieStadion in Köln will be moving straight through to the semifinals.
United have taken a strong squad with them to Germany — only Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe, and Phil Jones remained at home with injury. Furthermore, most of United’s first choice players were able to get over a full week of rest, as the second string took care of finishing off LASK last week. With a short turnaround before the start of next season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be cognizant of his players’ need for recovery, but it’s unlikely that we will see a similarly weakened side as the team that played at Old Trafford last week. The Europa League is Solskjaer’s only chance at finishing his first full season with a trophy — he won’t be passing that up.
