Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League tonight, losing 3-2 at Wolfsburg and now face the ignominy of playing in the Europa League.

Anthony Martial put United ahead in the 10th minute, but Naldo volleyed in the equalizer in the 14th. Vieirinha regained the lead for Wolfsburg in the 29th, before an own goal by Joshua Guilavogui in the 82nd tied the score. But two minutes later Naldo scored his second with a header to seal Wolfsburg's victory.

The loss, coupled with PSV Eindhoven's 2-1 home victory over CSKA Moscow, dropped United to third place in Group B, meaning that it will now play in the Europa League.


United's Europa League campaign kicks off in February.
