Copenhagen beat British opposition in Celtic, earlier in the competition

FC Copenhagen could face Manchester United in the Europa League quarter-finals after beating Istanbul Basaksehir in their last-16 tie.

Two goals from Jonas Wind and another from Rasmus Falk helped the Danish side overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit to win 3-1 on aggregate.

They are scheduled to play their last-eight tie in Cologne on 10 August.

Shakhtar Donetsk also progressed with a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg in Kyiv, confirming a 5-1 aggregate win.

The Ukrainian champions will now play either Basel or Eintracht Frankfurt in their quarter-final tie in Gelsenkirchen on 11 August.

Manchester United are also in action on Wednesday evening and look almost certain to go through to the last eight as they lead Austrian side LASK 5-0 from the first leg played in March.
