Rashford scored an 18 minute hat-trick as United ran out 5-0 winners in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
At the back for the German outfit was Upamecano, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks.
But the Frenchman didn't enjoy the best of auditions and saw himself turned inside out by Rashford for his second of the game.

Upamecano's release clause is said to be around £38 million should he choose to leave in summer 2021, but United fans are hoping that price tag has been lowered.
Rashford has done a better job of lowering Upamecano's transfer value than Woodward's first offer ever could.

Ole to Rashford: "Go lower that Upamecano's price for us..."
Rashford to Ole: "No problem, gaffer."

Did Rashford just destroy our target Upamecano before scoring that goal?

This is your Upamecano? :joy::joy::smile_cat:
I just remembered what Rashford did to Demicheles and ended his career at Manchester City
Upamecano shouldn't be more than £15m after this.#MUNRBL pic.twitter.com/2aWRggWYVr

Mason Greenwood opened the scoring for United in the first half after latching onto Paul Pogba's floated bal.
Leipzig did put pressure on the home side after the opener, but Rashford's introduction in the second half changed the game.
He netted two in quick succession before letting Anthony Martial take a penalty to score his first goal of the season.
Rashford would then get his hat-trick in added time and seal a remarkable win.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his striker's impact, but stressed the starting eleven played their part.
"Marcus Rashford came on and did well but the groundwork was there from the team," he said per the Express.
"That's what you want that from the subs.
"What a shift they put in. Leipzig are a high press, the intensity, so we had to dig deep.
"We had to rest a few because the season is relentless, so we used the squad.
"This group is coming together. The more quality and spirit you have the more you get the performance."
