How Manchester United can still qualify for the Champions League knockout stage



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have thrown themselves into jeopardy after drawing 3-3 with Galatasaray on Wednesday evening in the Champions League.

Goals from Alejandro Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes, and Scott McTominay were not enough as Manchester United drew 3-3 with Galatasaray in Istanbul, leaving them bottom of Champions League Group A and likely out of the competition.

With just a single game left, there is only one way that Erik ten Hag‘s team can still qualify for the knockout stage of the competition.

United will host Bayern Munich in the final game week of the group stage, having won just one of their five games, and sat on four points, while Bayern Munich have already guaranteed top spot with 13 points.

Bayern faced Copenhagen on Wednesday evening, with the two sides playing out a 0-0 draw in Germany, much to the relief of Ten Hag – had Copenhagen won, United would have been out of the Champions League.

The only way the Reds will be able to have a chance is by beating Bayern Munich in two week’s time at Old Trafford, and even then, it’s out of their hands.

As the game between Copenhagen and Bayern ended in a draw, United will only qualify if they beat Bayern Munich at Old Trafford and Copenhagen draw at home against Galatasaray on the final matchday.

If United finish second in the group, they will head to the Champions League knockout stages. If they finish third, they will head to the Europa League. If they finish bottom, they will be out of Europe entirely.
