Manchester United, the funny statistic

- Advertisement -

Recruited at a high price this summer by Manchester United, Rasmus Hojlund has already scored 5 goals in 14 matches. But his goals are linked to a sad statistic.Wednesday evening near Copenhagen, Manchester United thought they were on a walk for their match on the fourth day of the Champions League. At least during the first half hour of the meeting, perfectly controlled by the Red Devils and punctuated by two goals from Rasmus Hojlund. The Danish striker recruited this summer for 75 million euros was unfortunately unable to raise his arms at the end of a match ultimately won by the locals (4-3). And in reality, this is not the first time that he cannot celebrate his goals and a victory at the same time.Because as strange as it may seem, every time Rasmus Hojlund scored, Manchester United lost their matches. And each time, it was in the Champions League that this happened. This was first the case on September 20 during the defeat against Bayern Munich (4-3) despite a goal from the young Mancunian striker. Rebelote two weeks later against Galatasaray (2-3), while Hojlund scored twice. And since never two without three, the Dane may have scored two new goals on Wednesday in Copenhagen, but it was not enough.Silent in the Premier LeagueWe will now have to chase away the curse for the player who has still not found the fault against Manchester United’s opponents in the Premier League, despite eight matches played. Perhaps he will have the opportunity on Saturday with the reception of the promoted Lutton (17th). Only eighth in the standings, four points from last European place, the Red Devils would not mind a small double: victory and goal(s) from Rasmus Hojlund.Written by:Manu TournouxManu Tournoux is a passionate and knowledgeable football enthusiast with a special focus on French football.
