Highlights: RB Leipzig 3-2 Manchester United

Manchester United were dumped out of the Champions League on Tuesday night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils were beaten 3-2 by RB Leipzig.

United headed to Germany needing just a draw to seal progress to the knockout stages of the competition, but a defeat – which came despite a grandstand finish at Red Bull Arena – means they will now be playing Europa League football in 2021.

The visitors made the worst possible start to a crunch clash, with Leipzig’s Manchester City loanee Angelino afforded oceans of space behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka to collect Marcel Sabitzer’s diagonal pass and rifle a powerful effort past the returning David De Gea.

A bad start turned to downright disaster within 15 minutes, with Amadou Haidara arriving unmarked to sweep the influential Angelino’s cross into the back of the net.
