In a nail-biting clash that kept fans on the edge of their seats, Manchester United clinched a narrow 1-0 victory over Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League, with André Onana emerging as the hero in the final moments. The match began with Copenhagen showing promise, hitting the post through Diogo Gonçalves and forcing Harry Maguire to make a crucial deflection. Despite some spirited attempts by the visitors, it was Maguire who eventually broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute, heading in Christian Eriksen’s precise cross.
Manchester United had their share of missed opportunities, notably when Scott McTominay failed to capitalize on a clear chance. In the dying seconds, McTominay’s challenge on Mohamed Elyounoussi led to a penalty scare for United, but Onana brilliantly outwitted Jordan Larsson to secure the hard-fought win.
This victory not only marked Manchester United’s first Champions League win in five matches but also extended their winning streak to three across all competitions. On the other hand, Copenhagen’s struggles continue, as they remain winless in the Champions League for nine matches, dating back to 2016, and find themselves at the bottom of Group A.
