A narrow 1-0 win in the reverse fixture was do or die. United did and must this week repeat the act with Bayern Munich and Galatasaray also fighting to qualify out of the group.
The Danish hosts will have taken plenty of positives from their trip to Old Trafford, with only a Harry Maguire header and a last-gasp Andre Onana penalty save preventing them from points. They won this fixture 17 years ago, can they do it again?
United were again far from convincing in victory against Fulham last time out and head to Denmark with a record of just one win in seven on the road in the Champions League.

FC Copenhagen vs Manchester United prediction
Copenhagen should not be counted out in front of their own fans. It feels like any team worth their salt can give United a game at the moment and the hosts fall into that category.
United have the required talent on paper so should be winning with ease, but this will be a tight game.
