Last time when Manchester United visited Wolfsburg in a Champions League was exactly 6 years ago today. United had a make-shift defense which consisted of Park, Carrick, Fletcher, Evra and Kusczack. Only one proper defender and the second choice keeper coming to Germany to play against the then- German Champions at their home. A Michael Owen hattrick and United won comfortably 3-1 on that night.
Cut to today and what the world has seen is something that had been coming. Louis van Gaal’s “Red Army”, “bored” of watching a series of 0-0 draws, couldn’t have asked anything more from the match. The only glitch was the scoreline, as United crashed out of the Champions League into the Europa League, 3-2 against the German side who were clearly better than the Red Devils on the night.
The dust storm is currently raging on social media and it will take some time to digest everything that went down in the Volkswagen Arena. In the meantime EssentiallySports analyzes what is there is to be taken from an eventful night in Germany.
