The champs of this tie will confront Wolves or Sevilla in the semi-finals on Sunday 16 August in Cologne, with the last at a similar scene five days after the fact. And this is what the coaches said before the match:

Ole Gunnar Solskjær, United supervisor: "I used to play with Ståle Solbakken, he's an old buddy of mine – we've been in contact. We wished each other good karma [before the last matches] and said want to see you in Germany. They carried out their responsibility, we carried out our responsibility, so on to the following one. Ståle's groups are in every case efficient and hard to play against. Exceptionally skilled youthful players with experience. It will be a troublesome one."

Ståle Solbakken, Copenhagen coach: "United are big, big favorites. It's about executing our game as [well] as possible, and obviously we have to take care of many of the aspects that Manchester United have to their game. They are very fast and are good at counterattacking since [Bruno] Fernandes arrived. They also do very quick combinations around the box. It’s a lot of things to be scared about, but we just have to make sure that we follow the plan and see how far that brings us."
