Manchester United were two goals up and cruising after Rasmus Hojlund. However, disaster struck when Marcus Rashford was sent off for a stamp. Copenhagen managed to draw level before half time with goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Diogo Goncalves.
After the break, Bruno Fernandes put United back in front from the penalty spot. Playing with ten men eventually caught up with them and Lukas Lerager and Roony Bardghji scored to win it for the Danish side.
United are now bottom of Group A and pressure is mounting on Eric ten Hag. Next up in the competition for the Red Devils is Galatasaray who has already beaten ten Hag’s side at Old Trafford.
Arsenal are on the brink of qualifying for the knockout stages after they defeated Sevilla 2-0 with goals from Leandro Trossard and Bukayo Saka. They are top of Group B with nine points having only lost to Lens.
Manchester City beat BSC Young Boys 3-0 with Erling Haaland scoring a brace, whilst Phil Foden got the other. The defending Champions have now won four games out of four and are top of Group G with 12 points.
Losses for Newcastle United and Celtic
Newcastle United suffered their second loss to Borussia Dortmund as goals from Niclas Fullkrug and Julian Brandt saw off Eddie Howe‘s side at Signal Iduna Park. The Magpies are at the bottom of a tough Group F, including Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.
Celtic suffered a humiliating 6-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, in a match where Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata netted braces. The Hoops are bottom of Group E and results like this have questioned their legitimacy in the competition.
The Champions League returns on Tuesday, November 28.
