We’re in the last 16!

RBL among the top 16 teams in Europe | Angelino (2') and Haidara (13') score early on to provide dream start | Kluivert makes it 3-0 | Man United pull two back late on (80', 82') | Draw on Monday at 12:00 CET

We’re in the LAST 16! RB Leipzig defeat Manchester United 3-2 in the UEFA Champions League to progress out of Group H into the knockout rounds!

The Roten Bullen raced into a two-goal lead thanks to strikes from Angelino (2’) and Amadou Haidara (13’). The English record champions looked to bounce back after the change of ends, but Justin Kluivert increased the lead in the 69th minute..

Manchester United pulled a goal back from the penalty spot through Bruno Fernandes (80'), and Paul Pogba headed in two minutes later, with each goal coming in questionable circumstances. Despite the threat, the boys dug deep and held on to secure the victory.  

FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR, WE’RE AMONG THE BEST 16 TEAMS IN EUROPE!

2’: Off to a flying start! Marcel Sabitzer finds Angelino with a perfect cross, as he takes it first-time and buries it in the far corner.
Image
13’: Two for RBL! Sabitzer once again finds Angelino on the left wing, who sends a low ball into the box…
Image
…right where Amadou Haidara is waiting to volley it home. We take a 2-0 lead!
Image
17’: The team look hungry for more, as Emil Forsberg is the next to come close, but he misses from close range.
Image
29’: Ibrahima Konaté flicks on a corner that finds Willi Orban, who has the ball in the back of the net before VAR steps in to disallow it due to offside.
Image
HT: Manchester have been able to find their way into the game during the closing minutes of the first half, as we allow them more room and give up multiple set pieces. RBL manage to cut off any clear attempts on goal, but the game is far from over.
Image
55’: Man United come out of the break with more energy and are on the hunt for a goal
Image
Julian Nagelsmann reacts by bringing on fresh legs in the form of Yussuf Poulsen and Justin Kluivert.

66’: The guests from Manchester continue to break into the RBL penalty box. Péter Gulácsi parries a long-range attempt from Bruno Fernandes before a Fernandes free kick later hits the crossbar.
Image
69’: We add a third! Angelino’s cross goes off Nkunku’s back before it falls at Kluivert’s feet as he puts it past United’s ‘keeper David de Gea.
Image
80’: Manchester get one back. After three saves in short succession (70’, 72’, 76’), Gulácsi is beaten from the spot as Fernandes cnverts. The referee gave the penalty after Konaté appeared to have fouled Mason Greenwood.
Image
82’: Another goal for Man United. Paul Pogba gets on the end of a cross and his header falls into the back of the net, despite it appearing as though it initially came off Maguire’s arm. We’re in for a nervy ending to this one…
Image
90’+4: Nordi Mukiele sticks his foot out in an attempt to clear a late cross and nearly puts it past Gulácsi, whose quick reaction saves the day for RBL. The final whistle blows and we’re through to the round of 16!

We are Leipzig!
