UCL: Man United Will Bounce Back From Bayern Munich Defeat –Lindelof

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof says that his club needs to bounce back from their defeat to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League Group A game.

Bayern beat the Red Devils 4-3 on Wednesday, September 20 at the Allianz Arena to go top of the group.

German winger Leroy Sane scored in the 28th minute to give the home team the lead.

Serge Gnabry scored with a neat finish in the box to make it 2-0 just four minutes later.

New signing Rasmus Hojlund pulled one back in the 49th minute for Manchester United however Harry Kane converted a penalty in 53rd minute to reestablish a two goal cushion for the Bavarians.

Casemiro made it 3-2 in the 88th minute of the encounter after a goal mouth scramble.

Frenchman Mathys Tel made it 4-2 for Bayern in the 92nd minute with a neat shot into the roof of the net.

Casemiro scored again in the 95th minute with a soft header following Bruno Fernandes’ free kick cross into the box.

Lindelof told manutd.com this wasn’t the result the team wanted.

“Coming here is always tough and we played against a very, very good team,” Lindelof said

“And we managed to score three goals and didn’t get a result, of course it’s frustrating and we wanted a better result obviously.

“Yeah mistakes are part of football, it happens, it’s all about how we can bounce back from that. I think we started the game well and obviously we conceded the first goal.

“But we came out in the second half and we wanted to give it a good try and we managed to score three goals but like I said we didn’t get the result we wanted.”

Lindelof has made one appearance in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Manchester United have won the Champions League three times (1967/68, 1998/99 and 2007/08).

They are currently last place in Group A of the 2023/24 Champions League with zero points after matchday one.

    3 defeats in a row.
    Man United have to do more than bounce back at this rate. Maybe they should bounce sideways instead of bouncing back.
    Another defeat might cost Ten Häag his jobby job.
