Manchester United’s first Champions League game ended in a loss to Bayern Munich, the team’s third straight setback.
Even with late goals from Casemiro and Rasmus Hojlund, United were unable to steаl a victory at the Allianz Arena.
The team led by Erik ten Hag only had the ball for 40 percent of the game, while Bayern had a commanding 60 percent.
United attempted 9 shots, with 4 of them finding the back of the net.
In contrast, the Bundesliga winners had an incredible 19 shots on goal. Andre Onana had to leap into action on nine occasions.
The Red Devils completed 393 passes with an impressive 85% success rate.
Conversely, Bayern put together 602 passes, completing 89% of them successfully.
Christian Eriksen stood out during a game in which other United players were absent.
Eriksen was one of the starting midfielders alongside Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes.
In 69 minutes on the field, the Dane had just 46 touches of the ball before being substituted out for Scott McTominay.
He completed 83% of his passes successfully.
No crucial passes were made by Eriksen. He usually helps out offensively, but that wasn’t the case against Bayern.
The central player had only one cross attempt, and it was unsuccessful. He had two long balls ready to ping, but he never managed to Һit his target.
His lone attempt to score missed the mark.
Eriksen attempted two dribbles, but failed at both. In the game’s early going, he passed up a golden opportunity.
He engaged in five ground duels, won none of them, and turned the ball over ten times.
After being dribbled past once, Eriksen gave up a penalty that Bayern converted for their third goal of the match.
The player was responsible for one shot block and two clearances.
