After a game that will be remembered for a very long timethe Copenhagen prevailed upon her Manchester Unitedwith 4-3 in Denmark and overtook it in the standings.
The match started perfectly for the “red devils” as they took a two-goal lead before the half hour with Hoylund as the protagonist! With the Danish striker “nailing” his former team in the 3rd minute and also in the 27th minute, thus becoming the first Dane to score in his homeland.
However, Rashford’s correct dismissal with a straight red card in the 42nd minute – via VAR – brought things up and down at the Parken. As the hosts took advantage of their numerical advantage and managed to equalize…
With Eliunoussi scoring in the 45th minute for the first time at home while scoring goals against both Manchester teams. For Diogo Gonsalves – who had a header on the post in the 44th minute – to come in the ninth minute of stoppage time and make it 2-2!
The emotions were just as intense in the second half, though. Where Manchester United were able to turn around and take the lead from the penalty spot, in the 69th minute, with Bruno Fernandes’ well-timed handball by Lerager and awarded via VAR!
However, Copenhagen did not have their last word and struck not once but twice in the space of four minutes, entering the final stretch of the match…
With Lerager atoning for the penalty he took, equalizing with a fine effort in the 83rd minute and Bargi, who had come on as a substitute, scoring the… upset of the upset, making it 4-3 thanks to a terrific volley in the 87th minute, thin!
The English team saw the post again deny them an equaliser, with a shot by Maguire in the 93rd minute and the match ended 4-3.
In today’s other match of the group, the Bayern Munich he bent the resistance of the battle Galatasaray with 2-1thus reaching 17 consecutive victories and 38 matches unbeaten, having scored at least one goal, while – most importantly – secured early qualification to the “16” of the tournament.
The Bavarians entered the match better and by the half-hour they created but also missed several chances to score. Either falling on Muslera, like Kane in the 5th minute, or Sane in the 14th minute and 30th minute, or with Coman and Musiala missing in the 22nd and 28th minute, respectively.
The forced substitution of Musiala, due to injury in the 40th minute, allowed the visitors to … cheer up but Icardi and Zaha could not beat Neuer three minutes later.
Bayern went into the replay strongly as well, with Kane sending the ball past Muslera’s left post after Coman’s cross and Goretzka’s header in the 53rd minute.
Nine minutes later, it was Galatasaray’s turn to register a very good moment, with Torreira sending the ball into Neuer’s net, but the goal was rightly ruled out by VAR for offside at the start of the period…
Something similar happened in the 80th minute, when Kane sent the ball into Muslera’s net, following a free kick by Kimmich, but the 1-0 was canceled initially. However, after a VAR review, the English centre-forward’s goal counted as normal!
In fact, Kane scored again in the 86th minute, after an assist from Tel, making it four goals in this year’s Champions League and making it 2-0.
For the reduction of the score on the part of the Turks, with a goal that had… “Greek color”. As from Sergio Oliveira’s deep balls, Bakabu scored with a diagonal shot from inside right, for the final 2-1…
