Manchester United narrowly defeated Copenhagen with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, allowing them to close the gap on Galatasaray in the Champions League group standings.

Nevertheless, the manner in which Manchester United secured the win, thanks to a Harry Maguire header and a last-minute penalty save by Andre Onana, has bolstered Copenhagen’s hopes as they approach the group stage match in Denmark.

Danish football legend Preben Elkjær, commenting after the first leg, expressed his belief that Copenhagen would be the favorites when they face Manchester United at home, stating, “Then I think that FCK [Copenhagen] are favorites because it is one of the worst things I have seen from a Manchester United team.”

Kevin Diks, a Copenhagen full-back, shares this confidence in his team’s chances to secure a victory. He explained, “I would say we are [favorites].

We are in the Park, and we have the fans behind us. We have had magical evenings in the Park, and this will help us.”

Diks acknowledges that the outcome of matches in the Champions League is often determined by small details and the ability of players to elevate their performance in crucial games.

He believes that Copenhagen’s game plan can pose difficulties for all their opponents at home.

Diks, who faced Erik ten Hag in the Eredivisie, is looking forward to the challenge, and despite being on the losing side at Old Trafford, he is optimistic about their prospects.

Copenhagen’s player, Lukas Lerager, also expressed excitement about the upcoming game, noting the special atmosphere created by European nights in Copenhagen.

He emphasized that such matches have a profound impact on both the team and the fans, creating a buzzing atmosphere.

Lerager, who had hoped for success against Bayern Munich in a previous campaign, now believes they can achieve victory against Manchester United in the upcoming match.

Copenhagen enters the game with three consecutive domestic wins since their defeat at Old Trafford, while Manchester United has experienced two losses and one win in their recent matches.
