Man Utd 1-0 FC Copenhagen: Maguire’s header and a penalty save by Onana in the dying moments ensured United clinched a significant victory.
This was their maiden home game after the passing of Sir Bobby Charlton.
The match at Old Trafford on Tuesday served as an occasion for the club to honor and remember the World Cup champion and true gentleman who passed away at age 86 the previous Saturday.
Charlton, an iconic figure for Manchester United, captained the team to the European Cup title in 1968 at Wembley.
That’s the same venue where Erik ten Hag’s side aspires to compete in the Champions League final this June.
Yet, before dreaming of Wembley, there’s the matter of advancing from Group A.
Despite their challenges and previous defeats to Bayern Munich and Galatasaray, Manchester United narrowly secured a 1-0 victory over Copenhagen.
Maguire’s header in the latter half silenced some of his critics and put a dent in the ambitions of the commendable Danish champions, who threatened to spoil the night.
