See which Reds took part in a hard-working session at Bayern Munich’s training ground on Thursday.
The darkest day in the club’s history in 1958 is marked by the memorial and wreaths were laid by manager Erik ten Hag and assistant coach Steve McClaren.
Chief executive officer Richard Arnold and legendary former captain Bryan Robson were also in attendance, presenting another wreath on behalf of the club.
After playing in the 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, captain Bruno Fernandes and Rasmus Hojlund, one of the goalscorers, represented the players and shared in the moment of quiet reflection.
It may have been an unhappy European debut for the club for Onana but he did make a number of good saves in the second half, particularly one outstanding stop to tip away an Eric Choupo-Moting drive.
However, he fronted up to TNT Sports after the match and spoke to the broadcaster about the seven-goal clash at the Allianz Arena.
“It’s difficult, you know,” he admitted. “It’s difficult to lose this way because I feel in the beginning, we started very good. After my mistake, we lost the control of the game. You know, it’s a difficult situation and for me especially because I’m the one who let the team down. But the team was very good, I think it’s because of me, that they didn’t win this game.
“So I’m happy for the work of the team. We just have to move on. This is the life of the goalkeeper and, if we didn’t win today, it is because of me.”
However, the joy was shortlived, as Bayern Munich were awarded a penalty following a VAR decision. Harry Kane scored the spot-kick, but it would have to take more than that to quell the backing of our fans.
We came forward again, and the endeavours of players like Marcus Rashford and Sergio Reguilon were applauded. Further chants of “U-N-I-T-E-D” could be heard throughout the second half, as our fans desperately tried to inspire the players on the pitch.
In the closing stages, Casemiro cut the deficit again, to 3-2, prompting further optimism from the crowd in the away end. But, unfortunately, Bayern were soon two goals clear again as Mathys Tel scored the hosts’ fourth.
