Manchester United will today edge closer to winning their first trophy under Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, if they beat FC Copenhagen in the quarter finals of the Europa League.
From this stage of the competition, ties will be decided in a single leg, as against what was obtained.
This means that victory in Germany will see the Red Devils into the semis, where they will play for a chance at the final.
Ahead of the 8pm (UK time) kick off of the tie, predictions have started coming in, with former United forward, expressing optimism Solskjaer’s men will come out on top.
Speaking on behalf of BetVictor, Owen said, “A rather lack-lustre performance from Man United ended with a 2-1 victory after coming from a goal down on Thursday evening. In fairness, the tie was over after the first leg (5-0) so one can forgive the Red Devils for not being at their very best.
“They now head to Germany as favourites to win the competition and round off what would be a very successful first full season in charge for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“United have used 38 players in the UEFA Europa League this season – the most players a team has used in a single campaign in UEFA Cup/ UEFA Europa League history.
“Copenhagen demolished the newly crowned Turkish Champions, İstanbul Başakşehir 3-0 after losing the first leg 1-0 and deservedly earned themselves a place in the UEFA Europa League quarter finals for the first time in their history.
“I am pretty sure that Olé Gunnar Solskjaer will bring back some of his star players for this tie. It’s a favourable draw this one, I think, for United and I’m going for a 2-1 win for the Red Devils.”
