Team News

Manchester United are going to be without the services of Casemiro as the Brazilian serves his suspension for the red card he picked up in the defeat to Galatasaray last time out.

Manager Erik ten Hag also has quite a few injuries to contend with. Amad Diallo, Lisandro Martinez, Kobbie Mainoo, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw are all in the treatment room. Jadon Sancho remains exiled due to disciplinary reasons.

William Clem, Noah Sasah and Nicolai Boilesen are out of action for Copenhagen.

Draw or Copenhagen (Double chance) @ 21/10

They may have lost to Bayern Munich last time out but in a scoreline that was just 2-1, Copenhagen are showing that they are able to be competitive at this level. Their draw with Galatasaray was a good way to start the campaign but they will know that they will need to start winning games if they are to progress to the knockout stage.

Man United offer them a chance at that given the Red Devils’ poor start in Europe. Just like Galatasaray, this feels like another game where United can slip up, which would further aggravate the fan base. They may have picked up a win at Sheffield United on Saturday, but they will be facing a side who will try to outfight them all over the pitch, and they need to be ready for it.

Copenhagen will sense an opportunity and United cannot afford to be complacent.

Rasmus Hojlund to score anytime @ 21/20

If anyone at United can offer insight into what they can expect from Copenhagen it’s their Danish forward Rasmus Hojlund. The striker came through at Copenhagen, his hometown club, and his knowledge could be crucial for United as they seek their first win of the campaign.

Hojlund scored a brace against Galatasaray last time out and he will be hoping that if he scores this time around his goals will be much more valuable to the team. This does feel like it is written for the former player to score against his old employers. And Hojlund could even face off against his brother, Oscar, who could make the bench for this clash.
