ANY EARLY TEAM NEWS?
Following our win against LASK on Wednesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he anticipated making some changes from the side which lined up at Old Trafford, having used the opportunity to help the squad get the game-time needed. The boss didn’t give anything away, though, regarding who would be in goal in Cologne, saying it would be a case of
“wait and see” between David De Gea and Sergio Romero, with the later having featured in all but two of our matches in the Europa League this season.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are the only other English team left in the tournament after progressing past Greek side Olympiacos 2-1 on aggregate, thanks to a Raul Jimenez penalty. Wolves will take on the Spanish club Sevilla on Tuesday night at the MSV Arena in Duisburg, with the victors playing the winner of our match in the semi-finals.
