Bruno Fernandes discusses Man United’s prospects of making it to the UCL second round

Manchester United faced a significant setback in their quest to advance to the second round of the UEFA Champions League during a challenging encounter in Denmark. In a crucial match against Copenhagen on matchday four, the Red Devils sought maximum points to enhance their chances of progressing to the round of 16.

Despite initially holding a two-goal lead, Manchester United’s hopes were hampered when Marcus Rashford received a straight red card for dangerous play in the first half. The setback prompted the team to reassess their strategy and regroup for the remaining matches.

Bruno Fernandes, the captain of the Red Devils, emphasized the importance of securing victories in their remaining two games to secure a spot in the second round. The team now faces heightened pressure to deliver strong performances and secure the necessary points to advance in the prestigious tournament.

He said;

“We have a mountain to climb, so we must climb. All together. We have two games, and we have to win those two games.”

With three points separating them from Galatasaray in third place, Manchester United is currently bottom of the group. With 12 and 4 points, respectively, are in first and second place, go Bayern Munich and Copenhagen.

To have a chance of placing second in the group, the Red Devils must win both their home match against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford and their away match against Galatasaray in Turkey.
