Danish Champions FC Copenhagen became the only team Bayern Munich have failed to score against in this season’s Champions.
Copenhagen are now second in group A, level on points with Galatasaray who played a 3:3 draw with Manchester United.
The result means the Danish Champions will be needing only a draw against Galatasaray to reach the knockout stage if Man United fail to beat Bayern Munich at Old Trafford.
Should Galatasaray win the final group game against FC Copenhagen, Manchester United can only advance to Europa League should they beat Bayern, while a loss to the German Champions will send them out of Europe.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said he is responsible for his team’s tendency to throw away their lead in Champions League.
“I am responsible for this. We know we are in a project. We are making improvements, so that’s very hopeful”
“We are going in the right direction so I know we will be successful in the long-term, but if you want to stay in the Champions League you need to win these games”
“We were winning and then we’re losing it. We should have taken three points, that’s clear. We did this in other games. I was pleased with how we played but at the same time I have to criticise the team because the defending is not good enough”
“We are leading 3-1 and we cannot afford mistakes as it makes a difference.” he said.
