In an unexpected turn of events, Manchester United suffered a serious setback and are on the brink of an early exit from the Champions League after losing 3-4 to FC Copenhagen. Marcus Rashford’s red card changed the course of the game unexpectedly and put United in a very weak position. Rasmus Hojlund, a former player, took advantage of the situation and haunted his old team with two important goals in the first thirty minutes. United, who were originally expected to win, are now in a vulnerable position, raising concerns about the future of their campaign in the venerable competition
However, United’s momentum was hampered by Rashford’s red card, and they are now in danger of relegation following their third loss in four Group A games.
Before the half, the hosts equalized through penalties from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Diogo Goncalves.
United took the lead again through a penalty kick from Bruno Fernandes, but Lukas Lerager and Roony Bardghji scored twice in the final seven minutes to give Copenhagen its first UCL victory since 2016.
With two difficult games left, United is presently bottom of the group. On November 29, they play third-place Galatasaray, who have four points, and on December 12, they host Bayern Munich, who have already advanced to the knockout stages.
