Manchester United on the Brink of Champions League Exit After Copenhagen Loss

Manchester United confidently came into their latest face-off with FC Copenhagen, but things quickly fell apart. The Red Devils dropped the ball in the seven-goal thriller after Marcus Rashford's dramatic red card and are now on the brink of the Champions League exit. Once the match kicked off, it seemed United would cruise to an easy win against Copenhagen. Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring three minutes into the game and netted another goal against his hometown club in the first half. Things went downhill by the end of the first half after Marcus Rashford's red card blew Manchester’s hopes they’ll defeat Copenhagen without breaking a sweat. As the game progressed, United blew a two-goal lead in a humiliating fashion. Mohamed Elyounoussi's finish and Diogo Goncalves' penalty helped Copenhagen even out the score, and tensions were running high from that point on. Bruno Fernandes' penalty gave Manchester another chance for a comeback, but their hope was ruined by Lukas Lerager and 17-year-old substitute Roony Bardghji, who scored late goals to lead Copenhagen to a 4-3 victory. Manchester United sits at the bottom of Group A following their latest defeat, with the Champions League exit looming on the horizon. Not all hope is lost just yet, but they’ll have to beat Galatasaray and already-qualified Bayern Munich to improve their ranking.
