Arsenal and Manchester City have both been handed favourable draws by comparison.

It is a blow for United who also faced a tricky group the last time they were in the competition in the 2021-22 campaign.

But they did manage to win that group which consisted of Villarreal, Atalanta and Young Boys, but only thanks to six goals in six games from Cristiano Ronaldo.

A year prior United were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir and finished third, which is why some fans feel they are cursed.

One supporter said: “You can’t tell me Manchester United isn’t cursed when it comes to draws.”

Another added: “United’s #UCL draw couldn’t be much more difficult than that.”

A third wrote: “Uefa give United a tough draw every year.”

And another commented: “Man U VS Bayern????? May God help Ten Hag????”

Bayern Munich are undefeated in 34 Champions League group stage matches, while Galatasaray will create a hostile atmosphere for the visit of the Red Devils.

However Ten Hag will be hopeful he can keep Kane quiet as he stopped the striker from scoring in both Premier League matches last season.

Kane has only scored five goals in 19 games against United, and overcoming Bayern would give Ten Hag’s side a great chance of reaching the knock-out stages.
