They will want to end the season on a high now.
Solskjaer’s men are in red hot form right now and Copenhagen will have to be at their best here.

I used to play with Ståle Solbakken, he’s a good friend of mine – we’ve been in touch. We wished each other good luck [before the last matches] and said hope to see you in Germany. They did their job, we did our job, so on to the next one. Ståle’s teams are always well organised and difficult to play against. Very talented young players with experience. It’s going to be a difficult one.Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Manchester United Manager
Predicted XI: Johansson; Varela, Nelsson, Bjelland, Boilesen; Stage, Zeca; Pep Biel, Wind, Falk; Kaufmann

FC Copenhagen pulled off an impressive 3-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday but they will know that they have to perform a lot better in order to get a good result against the Premier League giants.
United are big, big favorites. It’s about executing our game as [good] 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 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.Ståle Solbakken, Copenhagen Manager
