Manchester United’s Champions League match in Copenhagen experienced several interruptions in the first half, including a pause for a medical emergency at the Parken Stadium.
The game was initially halted due to an injury to Jonny Evans, but there was a further delay when it became known that someone had fallen ill. The match eventually resumed after a delay of approximately three minutes, and it was subsequently announced that the spectator in question was awake and in good health.
It wasn’t the sole disruption of the first half, as an individual entered the field, displaying a Palestinian flag. There was also a brief stoppage when Harry Maguire alerted the referee to an object thrown from the crowd.
Amidst these interruptions, Manchester United, who realistically need to win the game after securing only three points in their first three group games, swiftly took a 2-0 lead, thanks to a double from Rasmus Hojlund.
A tense atmosphere awaited Manchester United in the Danish capital, but Erik ten Hag’s team struck first within three minutes. A superb team maneuver culminated in Scott McTominay delivering a cross for Hojlund to score against his former club at the far post, in front of the traveling fans.
