CHAMPION LEAGUE: Manchester United were unlucky when they narrowly lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich early this morning. Even more embarrassing was the defeat at home, the Old Trafford stadium. Manchester United completed a terrible Champions League campaign when they collected 5 points from 6 games for the Red Devils.
Kingsley Coman scored the only goal in the 70th minute for the German champions, who had already secured their place in the last 16, thus denying United the chance to at least continue in the Europa League.
United is currently sixth in the Premier League, and manager Erik ten Hag is under more pressure after a humiliating early departure from Europe’s premier competition.
United’s Champions League hopes have been hit hard from the start of the competition as they failed to win three of their four games against Copenhagen and Galatasaray.
It was only the fourth time an English club finished bottom of a Champions League group.
Ten Hag’s United continued to be hit by crisis last Saturday when Bournemouth won for the first time at Old Trafford and took home three points with a comfortable 3-0 victory.
The United manager recalled Raphael Varane to the starting line-up for the first time in almost two months.
The French defender was surprisingly left out by Ten Hag, but is expected to play a key role in the coming weeks when Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw were ruled out earlier this morning with injuries.
