Man United bottling it in Europe. Tell me something new ;)


United Come From Behind To Eliminate 1860


Mason Greenwood led the charge as Manchester United progressed in the UEFA Europa League

Manchester United (3) 2 – 0 (2) 1860 Munich

As the players walked onto the field for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League second knockout round, they were greeted by over 70,000 fans filling the stands of Old Trafford.

Understandably, 1860 Munich got off to a nervous start which Manchester United took advantage of when Andre Moutinho played a long ball, exposing an out of position Armel Bella-Kotchap to put Mason Greenwood through for the first goal of the match to see the Red Devils hold the lead due to an away goal scored in the previous leg. 1860 Munich eventually found their groove, as they began to create chances but went into the half time break without scoring.

Almost immediately in the second half, Manchester United has scored again, courtesy of an error from Domagoj Bradaric allowing Victor Lindelof to cross the ball into the box for Jadon Sancho to score. Despite attacking in waves, 1860 Munich were unable to get past David De Gea, who made numerous saves to keep the German side at bay to secure progression to the next stage of the competition.

“I am proud of our performance, the players were absolutely exceptional throughout the competition.” said 1860 Munich manager Daniel Bierofka. “It was our first experience as a club in European football for quite some time, hopefully we can return once again next year.” he added.

Manchester United will now face AS Monaco in the quarter finals of the UEFA Europa League while 1860 Munich will turn their focus to the Bundesliga and retaining their place in European football as well as their upcoming DFB-Pokal semi-final match against Borussia Dortmund.

Everyone: Such a great performance but not enough in the end, truly heartbreaking.
A gutting way to go out after the great first leg. Unlucky!
It was always going to be a tough ask to edge out Manchester United over two legs and 1860 certainly gave it a good go. They can be pleased with their efforts.
Devastated :'( Unlucky Griffo, you were so damn close! De Gea being a good goalkeeper shows how unrealistic FM is at times!
Wow very sad that they crushed you like that, next season better!
Agggh! Really, really close to the win, however still a great sign that you can match all the great teams
That's heartbreaking after such a good first leg, gutting for the team!
