Welcome for the live blog for Manchester United vs Copenhagen.
Both teams are set to square off at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne, which is also the stadium which will host the final.
The mini-tournament will see the remaining games being played in one leg allowing the competition to be finished on the 21st of August.
Solskjaer's squad for the Europa League tournament has been confirmed as:
Bishop, De Gea, Grant, Dalot, Fosu-Mensah, Laird, Lindelof, Mengi, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, Fernandes, Galbraith, Garner, Pogba, Matic, Mata, Lingard, Pereira, Chong, Greenwood, Ighalo, James, Rashford.
Solskjaer will most likely play a stronger team tonight to ensure his side progress to the final four.
Brandon Williams will also most likely start due to Luke Shaw being ruled out through injury, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe are also set to miss out.
The United boss has also refused to confirm whether Sergio Romero will keep his place in between the sticks despite proving to be reliable: “This season has shown how important Sergio has been for us and for me David is always, always performing.
“We will see what we do for the rest of the season and going forward. It’s difficult, but it’s a nice problem to have.”
