Manchester United have discovered who they will face in the Europa League quarter-finals, providing they come through their last-16 tie against Austrian-side LASK Linz.
The Red Devils, however, have one foot in the last eight having already demolished the Austrian side 5-0 in Linz in the last game they played before the COVID19 pandemic struck.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will play the second leg of the tie on 5th August 2020 at Old Trafford, with the quarter-finals scheduled for August 10th and 11.
It was revealed in today’s draw that United could face either FC Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir in the last eight, presuming they come through the LASK second leg. Wolves, Sevilla, Roma or Olympiakos await in the semi-finals.
The remaining games in the competition will all be one-legged, to be played as a ‘mini-tournament’ in Germany. United will feel they have a good chance of lifting the trophy, with a Champions League spot available to the winners.
