FC Copenhapen have their work cut out as they try to keep their European football hopes alive this week when they welcome English side Manchester United to the Parken Stadium in matchday 4 of the UCL group stage. The Danish outfit sits bottom of Group A after going winless in the opening three group matches (1D, 2L). They played well at Old Trafford in the reverse game a couple of weeks ago and could have escaped with a point had they converted a last-minute penalty which Onana saved from Jordan Larsson to ensure the hosts picked all three points on offer. That performance will give them some confidence coming into this return match
That 1-0 win over Copenhagen was Manchester United’s first win in this group and it could not have come at a better time. They were literally on the brink of elimination from the next round after losing their opening two group games to Bayern and Galatasaray respectively. They needed Onana heroics in the end to spare them some blushes. With Galatasaray traveling to Bavaria for their return match with Bayern, a win here for United will see them leapfrog them to second place unless Galatasaray pulls an upset. Ten Hag’s charges have looked far from their best but they showed their resolve to continue fighting at the weekend as they picked up a late 1-0 win away at Fulham. Their injury crises appear to be easing with the return of some key players including righback Wan Bissaka who put in a sterling shift against Fulham.
Goals have been hard to come by in recent matches for Man United. The Red Devils struggled to open up Jacob Neestrup’s well-organized side in that Old Trafford fixture. Although the bookies have them as favorites to win here, we pretty much expect a carbon copy match here – a cagey affair with limited scoring opportunities. We are therefore picking Under 3.5 Goals as our initial Copenhagen vs Manchester United prediction here.

Main tip: Under 3.5 Goals
Our Copenhagen vs Manchester United predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Under 3.5 Goals
This particular fixture has actually been a slugfest over the years. The last three encounters have all ended in an identical 1-0 scoreline. The reverse match a fortnight ago was a stalemate for the better part before Maguire’s late header gave United the lead.
Looking at the recent matches for both teams, United have had just one of the last 10 matches ending with at least 4 goals. For the home side, they have been pretty solid in their backyard with just 2 of their last 10 home matches getting to that threshold. We expect another drab affair with limited scoring chances and we are happy to go with Under 3.5 Goals for our opening betting tip available with good prices at 1xBet

Prediction 2: 1st Half Draw
There was little to separate these teams when they met as they went into the break on level terms. With the stakes even higher here, we can expect a very cagey start to this game with neither team willing to throw too much caution to the wind.
Actually, for both teams, their last two UCL group games have actually ended level at the break. For United a 1-1 draw at home to Galatasaray while for the hosts a credible 0-0 result against Bayern on matchday 2. We fancy a similar trend to hold here and are going for a 1st half draw with terrific odds for this option offered at Paripesa

Prediction 3: Over 9.5 Corners
A total of 14 corners was taken in that first leg match as both teams tried to break the stubborn defence they were up against. With this expected to be escalated given both teams’ desire to get all points on offer here, we can expect the defences to go to work again today as they try to repulse the opposition attack and neutralize any goal threats. This is likely to see another steady diet of corners in this match. We see good odds availed for double-digit corners here (at least 10) and we feel there is good value in backing Over 9.5 Corners option as our final Copenhagen vs Man United prediction for this clash.
