Rasmus Hojlund didn’t hide his frustration during Manchester United’s dramatic 4-3 defeat against Copenhagen, a significant setback in their quest to qualify for the Champions League’s last 16.

The tipping point occurred after the Danish side managed to equalize for the second time. In the 83rd minute, Copenhagen leveled the score at 3-3 as Lukas Lerager tucked away Rasmus Falk’s cross at the back post.

Replays clearly showed Diogo Dalot’s lapse in concentration, enabling Lerager to slide past him and score.

Hojlund’s displeasure was palpable, and reports from the Manchester Evening News described him as going “ballistic” at Dalot after the lapse allowed Copenhagen to draw level.

Shortly after that critical moment, Copenhagen seized control of the game, with Roony Bardghji firing home to condemn Manchester United to their third defeat in four Champions League matches this season.

This outcome leaves the Red Devils at the bottom of the group and facing a daunting challenge if they aim to progress to the last 16.

Reflecting on the match, Hojlund expressed his disappointment, saying, “Yeah, it is disappointing. I thought we started very well, to be honest.

We controlled the game until the red card, and that changed the game.”

Manchester United had stormed into a two-goal lead at Parken, with Hojlund, the Danish international, scoring twice within the opening half-hour.

However, Copenhagen was handed a lifeline back into the contest after Marcus Rashford received a straight red card.

Copenhagen capitalized on the numerical advantage, scoring two quick-fire goals before half-time to level the match, with Mohamed Elyounoussi and Diogo Goncalves finding the net for the home side.

Fernandes restored United’s lead from the penalty spot in the second half, but two late goals dashed their hopes.

Hojlund added, “I think we switched off a little bit. We didn’t anticipate playing with 10 men. This certainly boosted their confidence. I know how the crowd can uplift the home team, and it gave them a significant boost.”

“In the early part of the second half,” Hojlund continued, “we performed quite well. We maintained composure on the ball, kept switching it around, and even secured a penalty to regain the lead. Unfortunately, we ended up with zero points again.”
