In the 16th minute of Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final against Danish giants Copenhagen, Eric Bailly found himself tricked by some lovely skill.
The Red Devils lost the ball in a dangerous area and were countered, the ball was played into promising attacker Mohamed Daramy, who managed to hold off strong pressure from Bailly.
After that Daramy completely fooled the United centre-back with a brilliant fake shot come turned skill, fortunately Harry Maguire was on hand to block the 18-year-old’s shot.

Bailly dives in on anything that moves. He’s a better defender but reminds me too much of Rojo. Likely to dive in and either give away a pen, get sent off or injure himself

Bailly has seen little action for the Red Devils over the last couple of seasons due to constant injury troubles, the ace has been handed a chance tonight to win back his place in the starting lineup.
