Manchester United are out of the Champions League and out of Europe after losing 1-0 to reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at Old Trafford.

United struggled to create anything throughout the match, and eventually Kingsley Coman broke the deadlock for Bayern with a clean finish in the 70th minute for the only goal in the match.

After a disastrous loss on the weekend against Bournemouth, and a crushing loss to Bayern that ends United's European campaign, they now have to travel to Anfield to face fierce rivals Liverpool

Here are the player ratings from the game:

Andre Onana (5/10):

Onana did not have much to face throughout the match, but was questionable for the goal as he did not make the 1v1 more difficult for Coman and guessed way too early. Still one of his better performances from this disastrous Champions League campaign.

Diogo Dalot (6/10):

Dalot had a slightly above average performance as he was great in the first phase of play, but once he received the ball in the final third his decision making and execution was concerning. One of the things he must continue to develop if he wants to take his game to the next level.

Harry Maguire (6/10):

The English defender was having a solid performance once again, reading the game very well and winning his duels. Unfortunately, Maguire picked up an injury in the 40th minute before halftime and had to come out the game, and was replaced by Jonny Evans. Speedy recovery to Harry.

Raphael Varane (7/10):

It was a shock to see the 4 time Champions League winner in the starting XI after being out of it for the last month, but it was business as usual for Varane. Did his job on the ball and defended against one of the best strikers in the world Harry Kane very well.

Luke Shaw (6/10):

Shaw had a better performance after his below par game against Bournemouth, registering United's only shot on target. Like Maguire, Shaw fell victim to injury and was subbed off at halftime for Aaron Wan Bissaka.

Sofyan Amrabat (7/10):

The Moroccan midfielder was by far the best midfielder on the pitch for Manchester United, having a very composed game, and did excellent against one of the best young talents in football Jamal Musiala.

Bruno Fernandes (4/10):

It was a below average performance for the captain tonight, as he had the best chance of the night but blasted it over the goal, and wasted another good opportunity. His outlet passes were off the mark as well.

Scott McTominay (3/10):

The Scotsman had another uninspiring performance, as he was not engaging in enough defensive duels and was very safe in the final third. He had one good opportunity fall to him at the edge of the box and made a horrific pass.

Antony (3/10):

Bar a nice nutmeg on Kim Min Jae, Antony was very quiet and struggled to get past Alphonso Davies. He was very frustrating in the final third with his decision making, shooting when he could have passed and created a better scoring opportunity.

Rasmus Hojlund (3/10)

The young Danish forward struggled against the partnership of Upamecano and Kim Min Jae. Was not able to get into good shooting opportunities, and spent more time facing his own goal than the oppositions goal.

Alejandro Garnacho (2/10)

The young starboy had a horrid performance as he was running into traffic with the ball and was not able to assert himself in the game against Mazaroui. His work rate was excellent, but final third effectiveness was off today.

Aaron Wan Bissaka and Jonny Evans (6/10):

The two came on for the injured Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw and performed slightly above average. Evans held his own in defense, and AWB created a nice cutback opportunity and defended Leroy Sane well.

Hannibal Mejbri, Kobbie Mainoo & Facundo Pellistri (5/10):

The three youngsters did not have much impact in their cameos, however Mainoo made a couple passes and decisions that were top quality, something the United midfield lacked all game.

Erik Ten Hag (3/10):

A horrid Champions League campaign for Erik Ten Hag ended with another below average coaching performance. Midfield still felt unbalanced and the attack once again struggled to link up with each other. The substitutions at the end felt like a manager that had given up.
