Thierry Henry bewildered by crucial Manchester United stat in 1-0 UCL defeat to Bayern

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is surprised by the outcome of the UEFA Champions League group stage, where Manchester United scored as many goals as group winners Bayern Munich but finished at the bottom of their group. The Red Devils’ 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich led to their unfortunate position in the group. Despite scoring 12 goals in the competition, Manchester United conceded 15 goals, resulting in them finishing at the bottom of their group. This marks a significant contrast to their goal-scoring form in the league, where they have only managed 18 goals in 16 games, which is the fewest in the top-14 teams. It is the first time in Champions League history a team has scored 12 goals and finished at the bottom of their group. This outcome has raised eyebrows, causing surprise and shock among fans and football analysts. Additionally, Manchester United’s bottom-of-the-group finish has marked a record for the club, as they are the first English side to twice finish at the bottom of a Champions League group. This disappointing finish is a stark contrast to their previous performances in the competition, and it has put the club in an unwanted position in their Champions League history.
