MU lost miserably to Bayern Munich, Ten Hag still strongly praised his students

Despite losing miserably to Bayern Muich, Ten Hag still thinks that MU played well and deserved points in this match.

MU just had a weak performance against Bayern Munich in the C1 Cup. Even though they needed to win, Ten Hag's team hardly posed any danger to their opponent's goal in 90 minutes. The only shot on target for the "Red Devils" in this match came from Luke Shaw's individual effort.

Ten Hag still thinks his players played well against Bayern Munich

Despite playing so poorly, Ten Hag surprised many people when he spoke at the post-match press conference. "We did not deserve a loss today. My players played well in defense and put pressure on the opponent.

We won the ball back a lot, especially in the second half. Unfortunately, we were not able to take advantage of those opportunities. It must be said that MU had to face a very strong team. Bayern Munich is always the same. They have outstanding individuals who create moments of difference. That's what happened.

We understand what we need to improve. As a coach, I understand what my next job is. The players also have a responsibility to keep trying. We must have confidence to move forward in the upcoming journey.

Today, I have no complaints about the players at all. They did everything they could to fight Bayern. I also don't have any regrets. Our goal is to get through the Champions League group stage but sometimes you have to accept things don't go according to plan. We must learn from that to improve.

We want to return to the Champions League next season and that is the immediate goal. We had good performances here. For example, Hojlund has scored 5 goals. Hopefully we can recreate that in the Premier League."

Many people disagree with the Dutch teacher's statement and in fact, statistics from the match also show that. MU only launched exactly 5 shots in 90 minutes and Hojlund did not finish once. The opportunity came to Bruno Fernandes three times, but this player always sent the ball into the stands.

In addition, MU only touched the ball in the opponent's penalty area exactly 10 times and 9 times before the 48th minute. This means that they were harmless against Bayern Munich throughout the rest of the second half. According to Sky Sports' computer statistics, the possibility of MU scoring after 23 minutes of play is only... 0.02 and in fact that is true, they cannot concede to Bayern Munich.

The two teams played tit for tat in the first few minutes. However, MU gradually lost the game to their opponents. The clearest chance in the first half was Luke Shaw's shot from distance but was blocked by Neuer. On the other hand, Sane was given many opportunities by his teammates but could not take advantage of them. The first half ended without any goals scored.

In the second half, MU could not hold the ball. Bayern Munich was in complete control and when they delivered the finishing blow, the "Red Devils" could not resist. In the 70th minute, Coman successfully broke the offside trap and then fired the ball into Onana's net to open the score.

Ten Hag tried to make substitutions, but the home team's play was too lackluster. They didn't even create any chances worth mentioning. With a minimal loss at home, MU officially ranked bottom of the table and ended their journey to participate in the European Cup.
