Manchester United was unable to reach the Champions League as it was knocked out by Bayern Munich 1-0 on Tuesday despite Kingsley Coman scoring for Bayern in the 70th minute at Old Trafford, the victory to the German side for a slim hope of advancing to the knockout stage.

It was United’s 12th defeat of the season in all competitions as they crashed out of the Champions League, ensuring they would not be parachuted into the Europa League either, and seeing them finish bottom of Group A with Copenhagen moving to the round of 16 last group winner Bayern.

Despite the setbacks, this was never a game where Erik ten Hag’s side found their stride and, besides, a victory still would not have been enough given what was happening in the other game with Copenhagen accounting for the Galatasaray they to face next week.

The early exit from the Champions League marks the latest setback for the United manager in what has been a troubled campaign and comes just days before they were due to play a crucial league fixture at leaders Liverpool, where he will also be without the injured pair of Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.

But as Manchester United tries to pick up the pieces, attention will now turn to domestic competition as they look to gather themselves and finally get over this latest hurdle that their begging for the club.
