1. There is no turning back
Coach Erik ten Hag’s team is in a position with no way back in this season’s UEFA Champions League. Two consecutive defeats against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray left Man Utd at the bottom of Group A and at risk of early elimination. Therefore, the welcome to Copenhagen is important for the Old Trafford team’s goal of returning and slipping through the narrow gap into the next round.
More than ever, Marcus Rashford and his teammates need to refresh their spirit to win all 6 points in 2 consecutive matches against Copenhagen. Only by doing that will they have a chance to enter direct competition with Bayern Munich or Galatasaray in the final two matches. Being cornered will be the time when the Red Devils’ bravery needs to be shown.
2. Stronger force
In fact, Man Utd is still rated higher than Copenhagen because of its tradition in the Champions League and is a big club in the European arena. Coach Erik ten Hag has many excellent individuals who can cause mutations. That is the basis for Manchester Red Devils fans to set their expectations.
Moreover, this is a match in which Man Utd has the advantage of playing at home. Meanwhile, Copenhagen is the Danish representative that regularly appears in the European arena but has never advanced deeply in recent seasons. If they play properly, victory will be within the reach of the Old Trafford home team.
3. Rasmus Hojlund Faith
Man Utd’s confidence is even more grounded when they own Rasmus Hojlund, a striker with high performance in the Champions League this season. After 2 matches, the 20-year-old striker opened fire 3 times. He scored 1 goal in the away trip against Bayern Munich and then scored twice in the match against Galatasaray. However, the Danish player’s excellence has not once helped the home team win in the European arena this season.
Therefore, the striker born in 2000 is very eager to continue scoring goals to help Man Utd win all 3 points. This will be an emotional day when Rasmus Hojlund meets his old team again. With good form in the C1 arena, the possibility of him opening fire in the next match is entirely possible.
4. Paying tribute to the legend
On October 21, those who love Man Utd and the football world could not help but choke up at the permanent passing of a Red Devils legend – Bobby Charlton at the age of 86. He was the one who was with the home team. Old Trafford won the C1 Cup for the first time along with 3 crowns in the English National Championship and won the 1966 World Cup.
A win against Copenhagen would be the best gift to pay tribute to their legend. Certainly, the players and coaching staff of Man Utd will fight hard to achieve many goals at the same time in the upcoming match.
