Manchester United Beat Copenhagen 1-0 To Book Place In Europa League Semi-Final
Manchester United have booked their place in the Europa League semi-final after beating Copenhagen 1-0 at the RheinEnergieStadion.
The Red Devils came up against the Danish side in a single-leg quarter-final clash as the Europa League resumes this month after the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
And United were unable to break the deadlock in regular time, with Bruno Fernandes hitting the woodwork in the second half and Mason Greenwood's effort being disallowed in the first half.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men finally broke the deadlock in the first half of extra-time after Anthony Martial was brought down inside the box and the referee pointed to the spot.
Fernandes, who has been widely praised since he signed for United in January, smashed the ball past Karl-Johan Johnsson to open the scoring.
The Red Devils have now moved on to the semi-finals as Solskjaer seeks his first major piece of silverware as United boss.
