Manchester United has the 2nd best win ratio

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slammed the lack of concentration his team showed. He said: “It’s in football in general, not just the Champions League. Discipline is a huge part of the game. Aaron’s normally a very, very astute tackler, one of the best in the world, so we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task.” He continued “A lack of concentration, make a mistake and you get punished, you get done. We did that last year, we conceded two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game, and lost this one in the last seconds.

“We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two.”

Despite losing the most Champions League games out of any Premier League club, the Red Devils have the second-best win ratio.

Manchester Utd has won 121 Champions League games out of 231 games played, boasting an impressive win ratio of 52.3 percent.
