The deciding goal happened late into the 73rd minute with Marcus Allbackís goal. The Red Devils never got to retaliate with their own goal. The defeat wastes a game where the team could have finally qualified for the round of 16. They now need to at least draw with Celtic on November 21 or Benfica the month after that in order to ensure their inclusion in the round of 16.
But aside from the defeat of ManUtd another development during the game against FC Copenhagen worried Sir Alex Ferguson and the fans. This was when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started limping during the final minute of the game against FC Copenhagen. There were a lot of fears that the injury may be a recurrence of the knee problem that contributed to Solskjaer being sidelined for most of last year. Fortunately, it was found out that it was only a hamstring strain.
Nevertheless, he will still be sidelined for a few weeks in order to recuperate from his injury. A small price to pay for his return. And it could have been much much worse if it had been the knee that had the problem as it could mean him being sidelined for a longer period. As it is, the Red Devils need his talent and skills especially since they need to get through to the round of 16. Sir Alex said that they will not be taking any chances and that he will field as strong a team as possible in order to get that entry to the round of 16 at the earliest possible time.
