Manchester United set unwanted English record in the Champions League

Manchester United lost 0:1 at home to Bayern Munich last night. In addition to finishing last in its group in the Champions League, Manchester United set an unfavorable record for the team. The Red Devils are now the English club that has conceded the most goals in one season in the group stage of the most commercial football tournament. Eric Ten Hag’s players conceded 15 goals in their six matches in Group A.

Paradoxically, during the same period, United is one of the most prolific teams in the tournament this season, having scored 12 goals. This has turned the matches involving the “Red Devils” into some of the most attractive, yet the English team has not derived any particular benefit from this fact.

The defense and Onana have managed to keep just one clean sheet in these encounters, which came in a 1-0 home victory over Copenhagen. The most goals the Red Devils conceded to Galatasaray – 6, 5 came from Bayern, and FC Copenhagen scored 4 times in their net. Ultimately, for only the second time in its history, the 20-time English champion finished last in its group. The previous time when that happened was in the 2005/06 season with Sir Alex Ferguson in charge.
