Manchester United’s woes continued as they slumped to the bottom of their UEFA Champions League group following a 4-3 loss to FC Copenhagen on Wednesday night. Rasmus Hojlund continued his fine goal scoring form in Europe but his goals were not enough to seal a win for the Red Devils. Marcus Rashford was sent off in the first half for a nasty tackle on a defender. Defeat leaves United fourth with 3 points, needing to beat Bayern and Galatasaray to have any chances of advancing to the knockout stages.
Elsewhere, Bukayo Saka starred in an emphatic 2-0 win for Arsenal against Sevilla. The Gunners are in a favorable position to advance to the knockout stages and they got ahead through a Leandro Trossard goal, who was played in by Saka. The provider turned goalscorer after gliding past Sevilla defenders to score the second goal of the game. In other results, Napoli played out a 1-1 draw with Union Berlin while Real Sociedad beat Benfica 3-1. Harry Kane scored two goals for Bayern Munich to ensure his side progressed to the last 16 in a 2-1 win over Galatasaray.
Real Madrid put out another stellar perfomance in absence of Jude Bellingham as Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. got on the scoresheet to help their side defeat Braga 3-0. Brahim Dias put Los Blancos ahead in the first half before Ancelotti’s boys put the contest beyond the visitors in the second half. Man City, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, RB Leipzig and Inter Milan are some of the teams that have already sealed a last 16 slot in this season’s Champions League.
