United discover possible Europa League path

Friday 10 July 2020 12:40

Manchester United now know the pathway to glory in the 2019/20 Europa League, following UEFA's quarter-final and semi-final draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Reds still have to complete the job against LASK at Old Trafford in the round of 16 but, with a healthy 5-0 advantage from the first game in Linz, we can hopefully then look forward to the latter stages in Germany, which will be held as a knock-out tournament with one-off matches, rather than the traditional two legs.

LASK clash confirmed for Old Trafford article

UEFA confirm our Europa League last 16 second leg against LASK will be at OT.

Providing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men do progress, we will meet Istanbul Basaksehir or Copenhagen at the last-eight stage. The Turkish side have a 1-0 lead over the Danes from the first leg at home and we have never faced them in our history. United met Copenhagen in the 2006/07 Champions League, winning 3-0 at Old Trafford before losing 1-0 in Denmark.

If a place in the semi-finals is secured, it will be against either Olympiacos, Wolves, Sevilla or Roma.

United's second-leg clash with LASK will be held, behind closed doors, at Old Trafford on Wednesday 5 August. Kick-off will be at 20:00 BST.

If we progress from the round-of-16 tie, our quarter-final would be played on 10 August, with the winners of that game going into a semi-final six days later.

The last-eight and last-four games in United's half of the draw will both be staged at Stadion Koln, also the venue for the final at 20:00 BST on 21 August. The original location of Gdansk in Poland will now host the 2021 final instead.
