FC Bayern Munich Triumphs in Thrilling UEFA Champions League Opener Without Coach Tuchel

In a captivating UEFA Champions League opener, FC Bayern Munich secured a remarkable victory against Manchester United with a final score of 4:3. This achievement is even more impressive considering the absence of their coach, Thomas Tuchel, who was prohibited from being on the sidelines. It was a historic moment for Munich, marking their 20th opening win in this prestigious European competition.

The goals that clinched Bayern’s victory were scored by Leroy Sané (28th minute), Serge Gnabry (32nd minute), Harry Kane (53rd minute, via a handball penalty), and a late contribution from substitute Mathys Tel (90th + 2). On the other side, Manchester United, the English record champions, demonstrated their strength with goals from Rasmus Höjlund (49th minute), Casemiro (88th minute), and Bruno Fernandes (90th + 5th minute).

Coach Thomas Tuchel’s absence from the sidelines added an intriguing element to the match. He was unable to communicate with his team before the kickoff or during the entire 90 minutes, as a result of a UEFA ban. This ban was imposed following a yellow-red card he received during the quarter-final exit against Manchester City in the previous season.
