Europa League Draw: Man United Set For İstanbul Başakşehir Or FC Copenhagen Test

Written by on July 11, 2020

Manchester United will face either İstanbul Başakşehir or FC Copenhagen in the quarter-finals of the Europa League barring a miraculous comeback from LASK.

United lead LASK 5-0 following the first leg of their tie while İstanbul Başakşehir hold a one-goal advantage over FC Copenhagen ahead of their second-leg tie.

Elsewhere, if Wolves get past Olympiacos they will face Europa League specialists Sevilla, or Roma for a spot in the semi-final, and if both English sides progress from those potential quarter-finals they could meet at the last-four stage.


  • QF1: VfL Wolfsburg or Shakhtar Donetsk v Eintracht Frankfurt or Basel
  • QF2: LASK or Manchester United v İstanbul Başakşehir or FC Copenhagen
  • QF3: Inter v Milan Getafe v Rangers or Bayer Leverkusen
  • QF4: Olympiacos or Wolverhampton Wanderers v Sevilla or Roma


  • QF4 v QF2
  • QF3 v QF1
