Bayern Munich 4-3 Manchester United: Match story
Manchester United generally don’t start games fast. However, it was surprising to see United dominate the first 25 minutes of the game. However, they failed to find the back of the net. Pellistri had a chance to put United ahead but he failed.
However, Bayern were clinical and took their chances. The first goal was a howler from Onana and the second one was the brilliance of Musiala who created that chance for Bayern with individual brilliance. And Gnabry put that into the back of the net easily. The first half ended at 2-0 to Bayern.
In the second half, United needed a quick response, and they did get that when Hojlund scored his first goal for the club. However, the joy for United fans didn’t last long as the referee, after consulting the VAR, gave a penalty that Harry Kane converted swiftly.
If that Eriksen incident is regarded as a handball from now on in football, players should cut their hands off before coming to the pitch. It was a disgrace of a decision from the referee and VAR that cost United the game and Bayern once again took control of the game.
But, what makes Bayern-United games interesting is the late dramas. Casemiro got one back for United in the 88th minute, and after that, Mathys Tell restored the two-goal cushion for Bayern in the 92nd minute of the game. However, in the 95th minute, Casemiro scored a header from Bruno Fernandes’ free kick, and that was the last action for the match and the game ended 4-3 to Bayern.
