Manchester United vs Copenhagen betting preview
Six wins, six losses. What to make of Manchester United this season?
Well, not as good as the last season, would be one conclusion. Another would be, not a team to trust at 1/3.
That’s the price they are going off at to beat the 2022/23 Danish Double winners, who are back in Manchester 12 months after suffering a 5-0 beating across town at the Etihad Stadium.
Still, it should also be remembered that Copenhagen held City in the reverse fixture and also took points of Sevilla and Dortmund.
This season, they’ve drawn 2-2 away to Galatasaray and lost 2-1 at home to Bayern Munich – a game they led after 67 minutes.
In short, it would be foolish to write off their chances – after all, Gala won here just three weeks ago – although a recent blip will perhaps dent confidence.
After their usual strong start to the Danish league, they’ve won just one of their last four in all competitions and that victory required a late goal to beat lowly Vejle on Saturday.
United do have goals in them and should have enough to get through this one but the price is rather off-putting.
Better value lies in backing them to win whilst conceding – that’s on offer at 15/8.
Untied have conceded in nine of their 12 games this season with keeper Andre Onana under real scrutiny right now.
The Cameroonian and his defence may well be feeling the pressure here – it’s already must-win territory for United if they want to make the knockout stage – and so this looks a good, alternative way of backing the favourites.

Manchester United vs Copenhagen best bets
Here's what we have in store for you today:
Man Utd to win and both teams to score
Both teams to score has now landed in seven of United’s last 10 games with the solid defence that helped them into this competition having gone AWOL.
To be fair, some of the players have literally disappeared from the team due to injury but they’ve certainly looked more open in midfield too.
United have shipped seven goals in their opening two games in this competition and while critics will say Copenhagen are the weakest team in the group, the hosts have conceded against Crystal Palace, Brentford and Sheffield United in recent weeks.
United do have goals in them – they’ve scored 2+ in five of their last seven – so should have enough to get the job done but it likely won’t be easy.
⚽ Back United to win and both teams to score at 15/8 at Spreadex ⚽
Scott McTominay to score
Bookies often take a while to latch onto things and McTominay’s goalscoring ability has been shown to good effect in recent games.
The midfielder’s two goals as a late sub against Brentford rescued the game for United, while he also found the net at Sheffield United on Saturday.
Throw in his excellent record in a Scotland shirt (he was denied another goal in controversial circumstances against Spain earlier this month) and 11/2 about him scoring in this match looks too big.
⚽ Bet on McTominay to score at anytime at 11/2 at bet365 ⚽
Rasmus Højlund to score a header
Højlund already has three Champions League goals this season and will likely be fully motivated to find the net again against his former club.
Odds-against quotes about him scoring at anytime look tempting but for those seeking a chunky price, back the 11/1 about him heading home at some stage.
The Dane landed this in the last UCL game against Galatasaray and may well be able to prey on Kevin Diks here, who isn’t the tallest centre-back around.
Yes, it’s a long shot but shouldn’t be as long as 11/1.
