Manchester United vs Bayern Munich LIVE: Champions League score and goal updates as hosts make strong start

The players are behind me – Ten Hag

Manchester United’s inconsistent Champions League campaign reaches it’s next dramatic stage as the Red Devils welcome Bayern Munich to Old Trafford for the final match of the group stages.

United have four points from their five games so far having beaten FC Copenhagen at home and drawn 3-3 with Galatasaray last time out. They are bottom of Group A but there is a chance they could still make it into the knockout rounds. A victory over Bayern this evening would put the Red Devils on seven points but they would also need Copenhagen and Galatasaray to play out a draw to get through.

The best outcome would, perhaps, be for United to win and finish third meaning they drop into the Europa League but even that seems like a distant hope against a Bayern side that looks seriously impressive. Thomas Tuchel’s men have already reached the last-16 and are unbeaten in the group. However, they drew 0-0 with Copenhagen in their previous Champions League match and were heavily beaten 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt in their last Bundesliga outing so there is hope for a shock United win.

Manchester United 0-0 Bayern Munich, 29 minutes

So reasonably few shots on goal at Old Trafford, and the same is true over in Copenhagen, where neither side has managed to yet test a goalkeeper.

Remember, a win for either Copenhagen or Galatasaray would take them through. Manchester United are reliant on a draw there.

The best opening of the match but Leroy Sane doesn’t shoot! A neat one-two with Jamal Musiala brings Leroy Sane sprinting up the centre, that impressive turn of speed taking him into the box. It might suit a right-footer more but Sane could surely have improvised an effort towards the corner, but instead opts to try and find a teammate with the outside of his boot as Harry Maguire shuts down the space. Sane manages to win a corner with his pass, but surely he could have tested Andre Onana?

The hosts can’t make anything of the set piece.

Bayern Munich’s fans are in excellent voice, the travelling Bavarians ever impressive and no doubt having enjoyed their evening in Manchester.

Bayern Munich settle into a spell of sustained possession for the first time in a while, only for Harry Kane – dropping deep in familiar fashion – to squander it with a misdirected switch of play.

Manchester United’s passing football is accurate and effective, and an alleyway opens up for Luke Shaw to test Manuel Neuer from distance. Shaw’s strike is crisp but Neuer’s high guard is firm. Punched away for a corner.

Opportunities at both ends. Alphonso Davies surges in front of a couple of Manchester United players and looks to free Leroy Sane, but an over-hit ball allows Harry Maguire to steam across and slide away. The hosts counter and Bruno Fernandes can pick a pass 25 yards out, but the Portuguese midfielder’s attempt to thread the needle through to Rasmus Hojlund ends in a tangle with Kim Min-jae. Manuel Neuer collects after the ball spills through to the Bayern Munich goalkeeper.

Hmm. Jamal Musiala takes a tumble in the Manchester United box, but Norwegian referee Espen Eskas waves away his appeals. It’s a neat turn from Musiala, fooling Harry Maguire, but there is minimal contact and Musiala looks to be going to floor before Maguire’s leaden-footed arrival – VAR Pol van Boekel of the Netherlands agrees with the on-field call.

No goal yet, by the way, in Copenhagen, with the hosts holding Galatasaray at bay.

Two good bits of defending from the returning Raphael Varane, the first a traditional defensive clearing header, the second a reactive use of the dome when an Alphonso Davies volley deflects towards the Frenchman. I don’t think it was spinning in, but Harry Kane was lurking.

That right side of Bayern’s attack is providing the early threat. Alejandro Garnacho fails to track Noussair Mazraoui, and Luke Shaw can’t get out to him in time. The ex-Ajax man fizzes in a low cross, but it flashes across too quickly to allow a teammate to toe it home. A lively start to the game.

A first sighting of goal for Harry Kane, though it is a half-chance at best, the striker on his heels with a couple of defenders for close company as Kingsley Coman rolls a pass to him 20 yards out. Kane finds the corner, but not with the required power to beat Andre Onana, down in a leisurely manner to his right to corral it.
