In the first half, Manchester United’s performance was exceptional, with Rasmus Hojlund, facing his former team, scoring twice to put them in a commanding 2-0 lead.

However, the closing moments of the first half would prove turbulent. Marcus Rashford was shown a red card for a robust challenge on Elias Jelert, making contact with the Dane’s ankle.

A VAR review confirmed Rashford’s dismissal, marking his second red card of the season.

Copenhagen seized this opportunity to stage a comeback, netting two goals through Mohamed Elyounoussi and Diogo Goncalves.

Goncalves converted a penalty in the ninth minute of added time in the first half after a handball was called against Harry Maguire.

United, too, was awarded a penalty when Maguire’s cross struck Lukas Lerager’s raised arm in the penalty area, resulting in a red card for United.

United regained the lead with a powerful penalty kick from Bruno Fernandes. Just when it seemed that United was on the path to victory, Lerager scored an equalizer at the far post, exploiting a lapse by Diogo Dalot.

In the dying moments of the game, 17-year-old Roony Bardghji, a substitute for Copenhagen and their leading scorer, secured the game-winning goal. It was a historic win for Denmark in European football.

The result added to Manchester United’s struggles this season, as they have now suffered nine losses in seventeen games across all competitions. The pressure on their manager, Erik ten Hag, is mounting.

As things stand, the Red Devils find themselves in fourth place in Group A with just three points. Qualifying for the round of 16 will be a challenging task ahead.

Adding to their woes, Rashford will be absent for their crucial match against Galatasaray in Istanbul on November 29. Their final group stage match is scheduled for December 12, where they’ll face Bayern Munich, the group leaders.
