Manchester United put up an impressive performance but slumped to a third consecutive defeat in the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League opener at the Alianz Arena.
Christian Eriksen should have opened the scoring inside the first five minutes only to be denied by a sharp save from Sven Ulreich. A howler from Andre Onana then gave the hosts the opening goal and they continued to flow on a strange night in Munich.
Eriksen was harshly judged to have handled the ball which led a a penalty that Harry Kane dispatched with ease. Casemiro then score twice – either side of a Mathys Tel rocket – but United couldn’t rescue a draw.
It was yet another loss for the visiting Red Devils but the game was adjudged an improved performance from the visiting team.
