Man United vs Copenhagen: Red Devils determined to get 2nd Champions League win

Manchester United are unable to field strongest XI with key players still out injured.

Man United vs Copenhagen Live: Champions League LIVE – MUN vs CPH LIVE – Manchester United face Copenhagen in their fourth Champions League group stage match. With only a single win in their first 3 matches, Man United can’t afford to lose now. They will have 2 more chances to progress into the knockout stages. However, the Red Devils will still want to seal the deal earlier. The same goes for Copenhagen who have only been able to manage a single point after a draw from their first 3 games.

Manchester United have only won a single Champions League match this campaign. That match was against Copenhagen near the end of October at home. The Red Devils then had to go through 2 back-to-back 3-0 defeats in the Premier League and EFL Cup respectively against Man City and Newcastle United. The defeat in the EFL Cup saw them get eliminated. They made a comeback with a 1-0 win against Fulham this weekend. They will now look to build on that with a much-needed win in the Champions League.

As Man United are sitting in 3rd place in the table, Copenhagen are 2 points behind them in the 4th place. This match is just as important to them as they will try to get revenge for the last game’s result. Since their defeat against the Red Devils, Copenhagen have managed to win 3 consecutive games. 2 wins came against Hvidovre and Randers in the Danish top-flight league Superliga. Another win came against Midtjylland in the Danish Cup. They will look to make it 4th consecutive win.

Manchester United Team News 

  • Man United have been fighting with a long list of injuries since the start of the season which is nowhere near solved. Tyrell Malacia and Amad Diallo are suffering from knee issues, Luke Shaw is nursing a muscle injury, Lisandro Martinez is out due to a foot problem, and Casemiro is yet to recover from his hamstring issue. Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford also remain minor doubts respectively for the match with illness and injury due to knock concerns.
  • Jadon Sancho is also out of the picture with disciplinary issues. Coach Ten Hag could call up Raphael Varane in the centre-back position, so Jonny Evans will have to make way. If Aaron Wan-Bissaka is lined up in the right-back position, then Diogo Dalot will again have to compete with Sergio Reguilon for a start on the left-hand side.
  • Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen, and Scott McTominay will probably make the cut to the starting midfield lineup as usual. On the other hand, Antony could be left out following a terrible run of form. In that case, the coach could call up Facundo Pellistri on the right flank to take his place.

Copenhagen Team News

  • Copenhagen have a number of injury concerns for their important match against Man United. Birger Meling is still out due to muscle injury, David Khocholava is nursing a knee issue and William Clem is yet to recover from a leg problem. Mohamed Elyounoussi could also miss the match after he missed their last match due to an unspecified issue.
  • In the form of good news, Valdemar Lund is recovering from his injury at a great rate and could be involved in the match on Wednesday. However, the coach might not choose to start him in the place of the centre-back duo Kevin Diks and Denis Vavro.
  • Both brothers of Man United star Rasmus Hojlund – Emil and Oscar Hojlund will be pushing to start the match against their brother. However, Oscar Hojlund will have to compete with Diogo Goncalves to keep his place in the centre of midfield along with Lukas Lerager and Rasmus Falk.
