What happened in the quarter-finals?

Bruno Fernandes' extra-time penalty edged Manchester United through to the Europa League semi-finals as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side toiled to victory against gutsy FC Copenhagen last Monday.

An overturned penalty, two disallowed goals and efforts off the woodwork frustrated the Old Trafford giants during a goalless 90 minutes in which the Danish side looked dangerous despite failing to register a shot on target.

Fernandes would save the day from the spot in extra time, securing a 1-0 victory and a last-four date against Wolves or Sevilla back at Stadion Koln this Sunday.

Solskjaer will need a vastly-improved performance if they are to get any further than that, though, as their tired, sloppy play was compounded by Copenhagen playing with the intensity you would expect from a side in their first-ever European quarter-final.

United struggled to find a rhythm in the stifling Cologne heat but had the better of the chances, with the VAR ruling out a penalty and then Mason Greenwood's emphatic strike in the first half.

Marcus Rashford saw a goal ruled out for offside before Fernandes hit a post in the second period, with Anthony Martial superbly denied as regulation time wound down.

The match was on a knife-edge as play headed into extra time, which was just five minutes old when Fernandes scored from a spot-kick won by Martial.

What are they saying?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"Let's see if we've developed throughout the season because we've had two semi-finals before," the United boss said. "We want to go to the next step.

"Semi-finals, that's a good effort, decent but it's not good enough. It's not good enough for Man United still.

"The team has been developing, getting more and more hungry.

"Let's make sure that hurt that we felt in both the other cups that we've gone out, that can be our maybe marginal difference. The difference that we want it more than them."

What are the odds?

What's our prediction?

Sevilla have a terrific Europa League record, winning in 2014, 2015 and 2016, but Manchester United have plenty of goals in their team. Expect it to be tight, but perhaps Sevilla winning in extra time. Sevilla 2 Manchester United 1 AET.
