The match itself was a closely contested battle, much like Manchester United’s Champions League aspirations, and the subsequent “Man of the Match” poll was equally intense.

With the forward line facing difficulties, Manchester United turned to their captain, Harry Maguire, who delivered a crucial header. It marked a significant moment in his personal journey of resurgence, having faced a fall from grace and widespread criticism.

But then, in the 95th minute, Andre Onana seized the spotlight with his phenomenal penalty save.

The Man of the Match poll against Copenhagen was conducted through the club’s website and app, and the results were as close as the game itself.

  • Andre Onana: 51 percent
  • Harry Maguire: 40 percent
  • Christian Eriksen: 2 percent
  • All other players: 1 percent or less

It’s quite rare to see two players amass a combined total of 91 percent of the vote. One might argue that Christian Eriksen was somewhat unfortunate to receive only 2 percent.

However, when you take into account the emotional resonance of Maguire and Onana’s redemption stories, it becomes clear why the fans were so emphatic in their choice.

Maguire seemed on the path to secure this victory with his match-winning header but then came the late penalty awarded against Scott McTominay. Fortunately, the extraordinary Andre Onana rose to the occasion and saved the day.
