RB Leipzig produced a fabulous first-half display to eliminate Manchester United from the Champions League.

The German outfit tore into United in the opening 30 minutes of the game, and could've added more to their tally, had it not been for some wasteful finishing and VAR.

Angelino, on-loan from United's rivals Man City, was the standout performer for the Bundesliga side.

United will now play Europa League football after Christmas.

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Bruno Fernandes: 8.2

As usual, the Portuguese international produced a solid display. Fernandes was United's best performer on what was a poor night for the team in general.

Fernandes dispatched a cooly taken penalty that gave the away side hope of at least coming away from east Germany with a draw.

Fernandes completed 73% of his passes in Leipzig, from a total of 52, and is one of the few players that can return to England with their head held high.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Harry Maguire: 5.7

Take your pick from the majority of the United players. David De Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Maguire were all dreadful throughout the game.

However Maguire was unquestionably the worst performer for United.

The defender was cumbersome throughout the 90 minutes, and was at fault for Justin Kluivert's third goal for the home side, as he didn't communicate with Da Gea and let the ball roll across the six-yard box for the Dutch winger to slot home.

STAR MAN

Angelino: 8.3

The left-back was sensational in the first half for Leipzig.

Angelino scored the opener with a sizzler of a strike from the edge of the area. 11 minutes later he provided a gorgeous assist for right-back Amadou Haidara, who smashed home a volley from the Spaniard's lofted cross.

Angelino's pace was a constant threat for United, and it added further salt in the wound to know that the 23-year-old will return to Man City at the end of the season.
