United return to Champions League action on Wednesday night as they travel to Denmark to face the capital side. Though Bruno Fernandes&apos late winner at Fulham ensured an end to a rotten run of results, Erik ten Hag remains under pressure.
It&aposs been a dreadful start to the new season and it has been no different in Europe, in which back-to-back defeats to begin the campaign has lowered United&aposs chances of advancing to the knock-out rounds. United did manage to scrape past FC Copenhagen 1-0 at Old Trafford, with Harry Maguire&aposs winning goal and Andre Onana&aposs dramatic penalty save securing the win.
However, the result has not damaged Copenhagen&aposs confidence. On the contrary, full-back Kevin Diks believes his side are the favourites to win.
“We are the favourites when we have the fans behind us at Parken,” Diks told Danish magazine Tipsbladet, “I&aposm not saying that we are always favourites against them.
“But we showed last time what we can do against them, and we are in a good place. So with our game plan, we can make it difficult for everyone at Parken.
“Of course, it&aposs not the same United team as it was under Ferguson, it&aposs been like that for a long time. They are rebuilding, and it takes time. You can also see it in the results. This game has its own dynamics. It&aposs the Champions League, and anything can happen.”
His teammate Achouri is in agreement and was left underwhelmed by United after the first game. “We believe that we can achieve a result if we do the same at home as we did at Old Trafford,” he said.
