In the fourth round of the group stage of the Champions League, Manchester United lost to Copenhagen in a goal shootout.
According to the OptaJoe twitter account, the Mancunians have lost 9 out of 17 opening matches of the current season. This is a repetition of the anti-record of 50 years ago.
In the 1973/74 season, when this happened, the Red Devils were relegated to the second division, taking 21 of the 22 places in England's elite division at the end of that campaign.
Note that in the season that began 50 years ago, Manchester United did not participate in European competition, unlike this campaign.
