FC Copenhagen v Man Utd Predictions

FC Copenhagen to win @ 15/4

Bruno Fernandes' late strike at Fulham earned United a welcome if unconvincing three points on Saturday, but did little to suggest that they have turned a corner

Indeed, most of the questions being asked of United before they arrived at Craven Cottage are still being posed heading to FC Copenhagen, who look outstanding value to see off Erik Ten Hag's side at odds of 15/4.

United, fortunate to beat the Danes 1-0 at Old Trafford on Matchday 3, are doing little this season to suggest they are going to be a threat in either the Premier League or Champions League, and as such seem too short at 8/11 against a strong Copenhagen who are generally decent in front of their own fans.

Copenhagen have won three in a row since that luckless night in Manchester, cementing their grip on top spot in the Danish top-flight.

They were unbeaten in 11 straight home Champions League ties - including draws with the likes of Sevilla, Manchester City and Dortmund - before losing narrowly to Bayern Munich on Matchday 2, a match in which they were in front until the 67th minute when the German giants struck twice to win 2-1.

And Bayern are a far, far better side than United.

The Red Devils have had 13 attempts on target in three Group A matches, Copenhagen 11, suggesting there really isn't a great deal to choose between these sides as an attacking threat.

And that was certainly the case at Old Trafford two weeks ago when it needed a late Harry Maguire goal to separate the sides.

The 1-0 win over Fulham after back-to-back humiliations at the hands of Man City and Newcastle and a number of other dismal performances, may paper over cracks for some, but they look to be in for yet another tough night.

Elias Achouri goal or assist @ 11/5

There can be no backward steps from Copenhagen who will feel they pretty much have to win this game to have a sniff of making the knockout stage.

With one point on the board from a 2-2 draw at Galatasaray they are behind the eight ball. But they are playing well and have enough attacking zip to scare United with Elias Achouri among those capable of making a mark.

Achouri will be confident after appearing for Tunisia in the international break and the wide forward will now be looking to add to his three goals.

He is also Copenhagen's assist king with six in the league this season, is average 1.7 shots a game in Europe so looks a fair play at 11/5 to deliver a goal or assist.

Over 5.5 Man Utd corners @ 11/10

United's mindset going to Copenhagen is that they need to win this game.

Currently third in Group A they still have to travel to Istanbul to face Galatasaray, before welcoming Bayern Munich to Old Trafford on Matchday 6, and they would not want to have to win that game to ensure a place in round two.

So this game becomes critical for United who will have to be positive and a decent way of measuring that is the corner count, where the 11/10 they win over 5.5 looks a good price.

Having won 17 in their first three games they are going at just under six a match, but now the stakes are higher, the need greater and that urgency should see them clear their Premier League average which is 6.6 corners per game.

FC Copenhagen team news

Ex-Southampton winger Mohamed Elyounoussi has been out for two weeks with Jordan Larsson or 17-year-old Roony Bardghji ready to step in.

Georgia international centre-back Davit Khocholava is also ruled out.

Man Utd team news

Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Casemiro are all out injured.

Marcus Rashford could return though Alejandro Garnacho did ok at Fulham, while Antony is under pressure from Facundo Pellistri.

FC Copenhagen v Man Utd Stats

United conceded seven goals in their opening two Champions League games this season, before keeping a clean sheet as they edged Copenhagen out at Old Trafford last time out.

The men from Manchester then suffered consecutive 3-0 league losses to Man City and Newcastle, before another narrow 1-0 victory, this time at Fulham.

Copenhagen sit top of the SAS Ligaen by three points from Brondby, having lost just two of their 14 league games played.

Having won just once in five games in all competitions, the Danes have responded by winning their last three games, scoring nine goals across that treble of victories.
