Copenhagen coach Solbakken admits being rank outsiders against Man Utd

FC Copenhagen coach Stale Solbakken admits they'll face Manchester United in their Europa League quarterfinal as rank outsiders.

The two teams will meet in Germany next week.

"We have a better chance over one match than if it were two, but we do not have a great chance," said Solbakken.

"But it is clear we have greater chances with one match in an empty stadium than we would have with a full Old Trafford and a full Parken.

"You are probably a little nice to us if you say that there are 10-90 per cent chances now. Normally, FCK probably wins a significant match against Manchester United a few times. Had it been in a crowded Parken, I would say 80-20."
