Fans React After Manchester United Are Handed Group Of Death

Manchester United have been handed one of the toughest Champions League groups possible, with PSG, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir all in the so called 'Group of Death.'

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team avoided champions Bayern Munich but were handed Group H with runners up PSG, even though there were actually two groups left.

United though have to be in a separate side to the draw as Liverpool, for television, so they went into H and rivals Manchester City went into Group C with Porto.

After that Leipzig and Basaksehir joined Solskjaer's team, whilst City were paired with Olympiacos and Marseille, creating a very tough group.

Certainly the consensus on social media was that United are in trouble.

Last time United were in the Champions League, in the 2018/19 season, they struggled to get out of a group with Young Boys, Valencia and Juventus but just snuck through.

It landed them a tie against PSG and they lost 2-0 at home in the first leg. However a complete turn around in Paris made history, as they became the first side to go through after losing a two goal margin at home in the first leg.

They have never played Leipzig, who reached last season's semi-final, or Basaksehir, who won their first Turkish title last season, in the competition.

Can United make it through?
