Manchester Utd beat Copenhagen thanks to unlikely heroes Maguire, Onana

On the evening that Old Trafford honored Sir Bobby Charlton, Manchester United defeated FC Copenhagen 1-0 thanks to a stoppage-time penalty saved by Andre Onana.

Never before has Manchester United managed to string three wins in a row so convincingly, as they have done since the international break. A player the team publicly attempted to sell scored twice in stoppage time to help defeat a Brentford team that had not won in five games.

The winning goal came from a full-back in the 77th minute to defeat Sheffield United, the weakest team in the Premier League. A center-half’s 72nd-minute winner and a last-minute penalty save proved to be enough to defeat Copenhagen, who last lost a Champions League away game in the same group as Leicester six years prior.

The game’s winning goal came via Harry Maguire’s header in the 72nd minute, but not before Jordan Larsson, son of former United star Henrik, saw his penalty kick saved with what turned out to be the game’s last kick.

The legendary player for England and the United States, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 86, had an incredible farewell at Old Trafford on this remarkable night. After a quiet first half from United, they produced the kind of thrilling conclusion for which this team is renowned.

Ten Hag’s squad is currently one point behind Galatasaray and six points behind Bayern Munich in Group A, keeping their prospects of making it to the Champions League knockout stages alive. A really unique night, but one that defies logic.
