UEFA Champions League

One UCL record that Only Arsenal and Manchester United hold

Only Arsenal and Manchester United own one UCL record.

On Wednesday night, Manchester United was on the verge of losing its UEFA Champions League encounter against Atalanta. Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral scored in the 15th and 28th minutes, respectively, to give Italy a 2-0 lead. It is no longer news that the Red Devils' fortunes changed in the second half, as they battled back from a 2-0 deficit to win the game and earn three (3) points.

Fortunately, the comeback against Atalanta was Manchester United's second in the UEFA Champions League this season, after coming back from a 1-0 goal deficit to defeat Villarreal in the same competition three (3) weeks ago. Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored the late goal against Villarreal, was also the man who scored the game-winning goal in the 81st minute.

Arsenal FC was the first and only football club to come back from a two-plus (2+) goal deficit to win three (3) consecutive games. The Red Devils have now won a UEFA Champions League game from a two-plus (2+) goal deficit for the third (3rd) time, leveling with Arsenal FC. No team in the competition has done so more frequently.

There have been comebacks in the competition, such as Barcelona FC versus Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool FC versus Barcelona, and Manchester United versus Paris Saint-Germain, but only Arsenal FC and Manchester United have come back from 2-0 goals down to defeat their opponents three (3) times in the competition's history.

On Sunday, Manchester United takes on Liverpool FC at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Can Manchester United become the first team to end Liverpool FC's unbeaten streak since the start of the season?
