Fans single out one Copenhagen star for praise as Manchester United secure semi-final spot with win

August 10, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Danish side exited the competition with their heads held up following a stellar performance by the game's Man of the Match.

Manchester United worked hard but Copenhagen's Karl-Johan Johnsson worked harder in Monday night's Europa League quarter-final clash! Despite being on the losing end, the 30-year-old goalkeeper pulled off a monsterous performance to earn plaudit as the Red Devils strolled into the semi-final with a narrow 1-0 victory.

With Ståle Solbakken's men proving inefficient in the defensive half of the Premier League outfit, it took the uncompromising nature Johnsson to ensure that his side ended the night with a respectable concession rate. In the entirety of the night's match which was short of goalscoring chances, Manchester United had 14 shots on target.

Bar Bruno Fernandes' 95th-minute goal, 13 of these attempts were successfully saved by the of the Swedish shot-stopper. Seven of the saves were pulled off from shots dispatched inside Copenhagen's penalty box whereas the remaining six were from outside attempts. Perhaps, the most remarkable among the bunch was the save of Juan Mata's goal-bound half-chance while the game approached its climax.

Quite fittingly, Karl-Johan Johnsson set a new record, becoming the goalkeeper with the most saves in a single Europa League game in history. Below are a few reactions by fans:
