Manchester United were defeated 4-3 by Bayern Munich in Wednesday UEFA Champions League opening campaign at the Allianz Arena.
Leroy Sane’s shot eluded Andre Onana’s hands to open the scoring, and Serge Gnabry doubled the lead four minutes later to give the Bundesliga heavyweights a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break.
Although Rasmus Hojlund equalized with his first goal for the Reds, any hopes of a tie were quickly dashed when the VAR advised referee Glenn Nyberg to review his screen for a potential handball by Christian Eriksen when he couldn’t get out of the way of a Dayot Upamecano header deep beyond the far post.
The fact that Casemiro tied the score at 3-2 before Mathys Tel restored Bayern’s two-goal lead in stoppage time made the decision extra harder to make. United’s number 18 scored once more with a few seconds left on the clock, leaving everyone wondering what might have been with the score at 4-3.
