Alejandro Garnacho may have had something to do with Andre Onana’s amazing penalty save in the last second, which gave Manchester United their first Champions League win of the season over Copenhagen on Tuesday night. Before Harry Maguire scored just in time to break the tie, Erik ten Hag’s team looked like they were going to have another poor European night.
With the game getting close to the end, United tried hard to score a second goal but failed to do so. And they almost paid for it with the last kick of the game when Scott McTominay gave away a penalty for a rough charge in the box.
When Henrik Larsson’s son took the penalty kick, Old Trafford went crazy. Onana stopped his shot. With only seconds left in the game, the full-time whistle blew, and the United goalkeeper blocked Larsson’s shot with his strong left arm.
However, Garnacho may have been a reason why Copenhagen missed their chance to earn a point. Cams caught the 19-year-old standing on the penalty spot while players from both teams crowded around the judge. The attacker could then be seen deliberately scuffing up the area as a way to play games.
With the win, United is now third in the group, just one point behind Galatasaray. They are now close to Copenhagen in second place. The Danish team will have a second chance to get back at the other team in two weeks when the two teams play each other again.
