Manchester United had a bad night in Europe on Thursday night.

Their hopes of winning the Europa League ended with a 3-0 quarter-final second leg loss to Sevilla in Spain.

Here, the PA news agency looks at five other nights to forget for United in Europe.

Zalaegerszeg 1 Man Utd 0 – Champions League preliminary round first leg, August 14 2002

In 2001/02, United failed to finish in the top two for the first time in the Premier League. That forced them into the Champions League qualifiers, and they were handed a scare when they travelled to Hungary and suffered a shock to defeat to their little known hosts thanks to Bela Koplarovic’s last-minute goal. United would win the second leg 5-0 but this was still a humbling night in the club’s history.
