Bad night for the Reds in Copenhagen

Marcus Allback notched FC Copenhagen's first ever goal in the UEFA Champions League as Manchester United slumped to a 1-0 defeat in Denmark.

United made six changes from the side that won so convincingly at Old Trafford a fortnight ago and were made to pay in tough conditions at the Parkstadion.

A win would have booked Sir Alex Ferguson's side a place in the last 16 of the competition with a win, but the Danish champions kept the pressure up to record their inaugural victory of the competition proper, to keep their hopes of qualification from Group F alive.

Only Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo showed glimpses on a poor night for United, as The Red Devils were forced to finish the match with 10 men because of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's late hamstring injury.
