Manchester United suffered another setback in the Champions League as they threw away a two-goal lead against Galatasaray.
After a 3-3 draw against Galatasaray in Istanbul on Wednesday, Manchester United is at the bottom of Group A. Manchester United twice threw away a two-goal lead on a night that Andre Onana once again made costly errors.
They have lost three of their last four matches in the Champions League and must beat Bayern Munich to have a chance for qualification to the next round.
After the match, Ten Hag praised his team’s performance but also lamented individual mistakes that cost them.
“We are winning and then we are losing,” said Manchester United’s manager in an interview with TNT. “We should have taken three points, clearly. This is the same in more games – home against Galatasaray and away in Copenhagen, we played so good. So I have to make a compliment to my team but I also have to criticise the team and us as a coaching staff and me as a manager. We are leading 3-1 and you can’t afford such mistakes we are making because it makes a difference. Every goal has it’s own story. Our mistakes can’t be, because in the Champions League you get punished for it so we have to learn from it.”
Erik ten Hag’s side have to hope Copenhagen doesn’t win against Bayern Munich tonight. They have to beat Bayern at Old Trafford and also need Copenhagen to beat or draw with Galatasaray in Denmark on the same evening.
