Manchester United’s 3-0 loss at Barcelona brought up a fourth successive away defeat in all competitions for the first time since 1999.
Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League in Barcelona on Tuesday, with a 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou ensuring they matched a losing streak that last occurred 20 years ago when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was on the pitch.
A first-half double for Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho’s glorious strike after the interval ensured Barca cruised into the last four with a 4-0 aggregate success.
United have now lost four successive away matches in all competitions for the first time since October 1999. Current manager Solskjaer featured in each of those games as a player.
Solskjaer’s side also succumbed to United’s heaviest aggregate defeat in a two-legged European tie, while the Red Devils have now been eliminated from the Champions League quarter-final stage on seven occasions – more than any other side.
