Bad day for English soccer and both Manchester clubs. United lost to FC Basel in a dramatic game and Manchester City won their game at home 2-0 against the Bayern Munich reserve, but Napoli didn’t play and beat Villareal 2-0 as well.
Both, United and City, will now continue their campaigns in the Europa League. The two top Premier League teams not making it out of the group stages in the Champions League surprised soccer experts world wide.
One of the most anticipated sports events in the world.
