Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker predicts a hard away game for the club when they visit FC Copenhagen.
Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has predicted a very hard away game for United when they visit FC Copenhagen. The Red Devils will play the Denmark club on 9th November at Copenhagen’s home stadium Parken.
United defeated Copenhagen 1-0 in their third Champions League Group A game at Old Trafford. Harry Maguire gave United a second-half lead and Andre Onana saved a penalty in the final moment of the game.
Copenhagen surprised the Red Devils with their adventurous and fearless style of play throughout the 90 minutes. The Danish club hit the post in the fifth minute of the game and kept on bypassing United’s midfield.
Parker told Danish sports magazine Tipsbladet that United would be happy to get a draw at Parken Stadium against Copenhagen. He said:
“I think Man United will get three points at Old Trafford, but it will be really difficult. Away in the Park, they must be happy to get one point. Very happy indeed and I think they will pick up a maximum of four points in the two games”
United registered their third consecutive victory in all competitions since the memorable comeback against Brentford before the October international break. The Red Devils struggled to impose their dominance in all three wins and showed a lot of vulnerabilities. However, the result gives manager Erik ten Hag something to build upon and relieves a lot of pressure.
United have lost six games this season in all competitions and suffered from an injury crisis and poor performances. Ten Hag has not been able to balance the side in both offensive and defensive aspects.
The Red Devils looked vulnerable in the game they attempted to be more adventurous. On the other hand, when they played cautious football, they failed to create many chances.
