Mathys Tel’s stoppage-time goal proved decisive as Bayern Munich secured a 4-3 victory over Manchester United in their opening Champions League match on Wednesday.

Mathys Tel’s goal was a spectacular finish, coming in the second minute of injury time. It served to reestablish Bayern Munich’s two-goal lead just as Manchester United appeared to be on the brink of executing another remarkable comeback, following Casemiro’s goal in the 88th minute.

Casemiro managed to score once more, this time with a header from Bruno Fernandes’ free kick in the fifth minute of stoppage time. However, unlike their historic victory over Bayern with two late goals in the 1999 Champions League final, Manchester United couldn’t conjure up a fairy-tale ending this time. Bayern Munich ultimately emerged victorious in their recent encounter.

In their meeting during the group stage, Manchester United took the initiative early against their old rivals. However, Harry Kane’s penalty in the 53rd minute, which made the score 3-1 in favor of Bayern Munich, appeared to be a significant setback for a Manchester United side that was plagued by injuries and lacked confidence after a less-than-ideal start to the Premier League season with three defeats in five games.

Manchester United faced significant injury setbacks as several key players were unavailable. Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were all sidelined due to injuries. The situation became so dire that coach Erik ten Hag had to include three goalkeepers among his substitutes, highlighting the extent of their injury woes.

Manchester United’s coach, Erik ten Hag, wasn’t the only one facing a coaching situation. On the other side, Thomas Tuchel, the head coach of Bayern Munich, was suspended due to his sending-off during Bayern’s quarterfinal loss to Manchester City in the previous season. Consequently, his assistants Zsolt Löw and Anthony Barry took charge of the team for this particular match.

Manchester United came close to taking an unexpected early lead in the match when Alphonso Davies made a crucial sliding intervention to thwart Facundo Pellistri’s close-range effort. Bayern Munich’s goalkeeper, Sven Ulreich, then made a crucial save to deny Christian Eriksen’s follow-up attempt from the rebound.

Bayern Munich had to exercise patience, as they had to wait until the 20th minute for their first significant opportunity. They also had a bit of luck on their side when United’s goalkeeper, André Onana, deflected Leroy Sané’s seemingly innocuous shot into the right post in the 28th minute. This occurred after Sané executed a one-two with Harry Kane, with the deflection resulting in a goal for Bayern.

Serge Gnabry took advantage of Sané’s shot by scoring another goal four minutes later. He fired a shot from a distance into the far post after a great setup by Jamal Musiala.

In the second half, Höjlund scored with a deflected shot, but Eriksen was penalized for a handball through VAR after the ball accidentally hit his hand when Dayot Upamecano headed it. Kane then converted the penalty, marking his first Champions League goal for Bayern Munich. The six-time champions remained in control until Casemiro’s goal added some excitement to the end of the match.
