Heralded as the standout clash of Wednesday night's fixtures, the game did not disappoint. The German international showcased one of his finest performances under the European floodlights.

Musiala exposes United's weakness

Musiala had a field day, exploiting the vulnerabilities of the United defence with his blistering speed and dazzling dribbling skills, which allowed him to navigate through their ranks effortlessly.

The 20-year-old channelled his inner Lionel Messi as he weaved through the defence before finding an unmarked Serge Gnabry, who confidently doubled Bayern's lead.

A top contender for this year's Golden Boy Award, Musiala continued to trouble the defence as he set up Leroy Sane, but this time, Sane's shot struck the post.

Here is a video of his performance, which has gained significant traction on social media:

While he couldn't find the back of the net himself, Musiala made a strong impression on the game, becoming a constant source of frustration for the United defence, particularly Casemiro.

He was substituted in the 75th minute as the German champions ultimately secured a 4-3 victory against the struggling Premier League side.

According to Squawka, the young talent successfully completed all five of his attempted take-ons, created three scoring opportunities, and registered an assist.

Musiala runs riot as Bayern beat United

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Bayern Munich piled more misery on struggling Manchester United with a 4-3 home win in the Champions League on Wednesday, thanks to the brilliance of Jamal Musiala.

United travelled to Germany after a poor run of form and amid a raft of off-field issues and were offered little respite by a Bayern side who have now won their past 20 Champions League opening matches.

It was a fourth defeat in just six matches for Erik ten Hag's floundering United in all competitions this season as they failed to bounce back from last weekend's embarrassing 3-1 home loss to Brighton in the Premier League.
