On Wednesday, November 8th, 2023, Copenhagen will host Erik ten Hag’s under-pressure United side at Parken Stadium for a pivotal Group A contest in the Champions League. This will be the first time Copenhagen will host the Red Devils since securing a memorable 1-0 home triumph over the men in red in the 2006-07 Champions League group stage – their first-ever victory in the competition that coincidentally took place on matchday four.
The Danes will be seeking revenge against the English outfit after suffering a slender 1-0 loss in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford two weeks ago. The Danish hosts will have taken plenty of positive from their performance against Man United on matchday three, but they ultimately came away from the red side of Manchester empty-handed, as Harry Maguire’s second-half header was followed by a dramatic last-minute penalty save from Andre Onana to ensure the Red Devils claimed all three points.
After accumulating just one point from their first three Champions League fixtures, the Lions face an uphill battle to secure a top-two finish in Group A as they currently sit rock bottom of the group and three points adrift of second-placed Galatasaray, who travel to leaders Bayern Munich in their next match.
United, on the other hand, will be looking to build on their momentum after bagging a win against the Cottagers in the dying embers of the game. Despite lacking consistency in this early period of the season, our analysts are backing ten Hag’s men to bag a comfortable win against FC Copenhagen on Tuesday.
The midfield battle is going to be an interesting thing to watch as both teams will look to control the ball in the middle of the field. The match is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 PM UK time. United fans will definitely keep an eye out for the football live scores from the other group games to not only see how the Turkish giants are getting along but to see who they could potentially be facing in the round of 16.
Copenhagen predicted lineup: Grabara; Jelert, Khocholava, Diks, Sorensen; Lerager, Falk, Claesson; Bardghji, Larsson, Goncalves
Manchester United predicted lineup: Onana; Wan-Bissaka , Evans, Maguire, Dalot; Bruno, Eriksen, Mctominay; Pellistri, Hojlund, Garnacho
