Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel counts his team’s luck against Manchester United.
Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel gave his analysis to DAZN (h/t Manchester Evening News), as his Bayern side won the Champions League Group A opening game 4-3 against Manchester United at Allianz Arena on Wednesday.
The high-scoring games had many twists and turns before the referee blew his full-time whistle. United started on a high note as Christian Eriksen carved through Bayern’s defense to feed Facundo Pellistri in the fourth minute. Bayern’s goalkeeper managed to spread himself to make a vital save for the German giants.
Tuchel served the touchline ban during the game as assistant manager Zsolt Lőw took charge of the touchline to give instructions.
Tuchel told DAZN (h/t Manchester Evening News) about the luck his German side had when they survived the opening chance for United. He said:
“We’re posing a threat in every game, creating chances in every game, but we were very reserved in the opening exchanges and lucky not to fall behind. The goals helped us establish some confidence and fluidity.
It is understandable that Tuchel thinks that his side was lucky as the Red Devils never gave up on the game. United kept fighting back with two late goals from Casemiro in the 88th minute and 95th minute.
Unfortunately, the vulnerability at the back never let the English giants gain any lead throughout the game.
The loss adds to the torrid start that United have faced this season. The club has lost four games out of the six they have played so far in all competitions.
We hope that words of Tuchel can boost the morale of United players as the problems they are facing are fixable. United has immense quality in the team to pose the threat and they just need to build cohesion.

The Red Devils have signed many new players who would need time to gel in. Rasmus Højlund got his debut goal which is another positive for the team while Sergio Reguilón was one of the best performers for the team. The team can take inspiration from these newcomers and help the club out of their nightmare form.
