When Norwegian referee Espen Eskas blew the final whistle, a whistle of light wafted through large parts of the Old Trafford crowd, while the German fans outside the stadium sang “Football is coming home” at the top of their lungs.

  • For the first time in 18 years, United were eliminated from all European competitions before Christmas.
  • 15 goals conceded is the worst record for a Premier League club in the Champions League group stage.
  • Erik ten Hag’s men are last in the group. Behind Bayern Munich, Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

– They are not better than them (Copenhagen and Galatasaray). Do you think United traveled to Bodo and Molde and won? We have to put things right. This is the level United are at at the moment. They probably won’t travel to Molde and Bodø and win, says TV 2 pundit Morten Langley.

Head coach Ten Hag believes the Champions League qualifiers are still unbeatable this evening, and says the team performed well in the tournament.

– In the end, it’s not good enough. But today’s performance was very good again. We didn’t deserve to lose, but we lost again, says Ten Hag in an interview shown on TV2.

– As a manager, I have to improve and develop the team. The players must take responsibility, and we must do it together, continues Ten Hag.

Instead, Copenhagen and Mohamed Elyounoussi qualified from the United group with a 1-0 win over third-placed Galatasaray in Parken.

– It’s very disappointing. United were expected to advance when the group was drawn. Former Manchester United goalkeeper Rio Ferdinand tells TNT Sports that scoring three goals in every away game and not coming away with points is criminal.

– First of all, I think it was a scary performance. There was a huge lack of threats in front of goal, says Manchester United legend Paul Scholes on the same channel.

-Cursed and corrupt. this is the truth. They are not good. Former Blackburn and Celtic player Chris Sutton says in a BBC broadcast: Manchester United is falling backwards under the number ten, an old hag.

And so continues a long and difficult period for United, which has already continued since the start of the series in August. United have been eliminated from the League Cup and are already trailing in the league, suffering seven defeats in 16 matches.

Not only that: on Tuesday, Harry Maguire also left the field before half-time with what looked like a groin problem.

SLET: Harry Maguire was forced to leave the field before half-time against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

One would almost think it would be a fireworks of a match.

Big chances almost failed. Both teams had some chances to finish the game, but they were either too inconclusive, too inaccurate, or the goalkeeper got in the way.

The game opened up more after the break. The home team also created some chances early in the second half, but were never dangerous in front of Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

He was pretty tame at the other end as well. But they were still dangerous when they first entered United’s penalty area. This happened in the 70th minute.

Kingsley Coman danced for the first time with two United players. After several moves – with the away team on the sidelines alongside them – the Lightning winger was suddenly alone with goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Koeman did nothing wrong there – and sent a silent little sigh through Old Trafford.

Lord United: Kingsley Coman, Bayern Munich player.

Manager Ten Hag was active on the sidelines throughout the game. But when the 0-1 score became a reality, he sat back in his chair and looked very worried.

He had every reason to. His team had no final push, despite trying to make moves on the eve, and ultimately ended up defeating Manchester United.
