RB Leipzig beat Manchester United 3-2 on Tuesday to dump the Red Devils out of the Champions League.

Angelino fired RB Leipzig with an early lead. Amadou Haidara doubled that lead in the 13th minute while Justin Kluivert made it three with a second-half finish of his own.

Bruno Fernandes gave Manchester United hope, firing from the penalty spot in the 80th minute. Two minutes later, Paul Pogba scored United’s second.

However, RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann insists Manchester United’s second goal shouldn’t have stood.

He said: “On the second goal, I also believe that Harry Maguire’s hand went to the ball. I’ve seen four perspectives, it’s hard to see, but I think it was handball and shouldn’t have counted either.

“It doesn’t matter now, though. We’re through.”
