Former Celtic attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi helped down Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday evening. It was a dramatic night of action, with the Norwegian internationalist getting in on the act.
Indeed in the 45th minute, Elyounoussi got one back for his side with a fantastic, first-time finish:
A nightmare for United

The strike went a long way in securing victory for Copenhagen, who eventually triumphed by four goals to three. It was the second goal the 29-year-old had netted in this season’s Champions League, his first coming away at Galatasaray.
For his side, the victory was colossal because it took them into second place in Group A. The win was somewhat of a shock and for Celtic, it displays that notable results can be secured against top sides.
If the Bhoys play their cards right with recruitment and are much more street-smart, they can create memorable European nights once again. Supporters are desperate for some progress, and Elyounoussi and Copenhagen’s exploits are a stark reminder that growth can come.
