Man United’s fixture schedule as route to Europa League glory becomes clearer

Manchester United have a fantastic opportunity to claim their first piece of silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The Reds travel to Germany for the Europa League’s condensed mini-tournament knowing they are just three matches away from glory.

Solskjaer’s rotated side laboured to a 2-1 victory over LASK at Old Trafford to seal the progression through to the quarter-finals, though the game was all but a formality with the 5-0 lead they had going into the second leg.

United’s route to the final of the competition became clearer on Thursday evening as the remaining quarter-finalists were confirmed.

FC Copenhagen will be United’s quarter-final opponents on Monday after overturning a deficit to knock out Turkish side İstanbul Başakşehir 3-1 on aggregate.

Meanwhile, Wolves edged past Olympiakos at Molineux to complete a 2-1 aggregate win.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will face La Liga side Sevilla in the quarters on Tuesday, after they beat 2-0 Roma in a one-leg round of 16 clash.

Wolves’ progression means the Reds could meet them in an all-Premier League semi-final if each side win their respective ties.

In the other quarter-finals, Bayern Leverkusen face Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donestsk come up against FC Basel.

Here’s the fixture schedule for the remainder of the Europa League tournament to be played across four German cities in the next couple of weeks:
