Angel Di Maria pierced a pass to Mbappe who latched onto the ball until the linesman flagged for offside.
But replays clearly showed the PSG forward was onside with the Bayern defender playing him on.
The linesman's decision to flag for offside prevented a potential goal which could have been adjudged onside through VAR.
Mbappe remonstrated to the match official with fans venting their anger on social media.
Mbappe was not offside here, but the assistant made two mistakes: not waiting and missing the onside. Not only in the PL! pic.twitter.com/tmPNHpBTq1- Parted Beard (@PartedBeard) April 13, 2021
That wasn't offside and also why not let the play continue? Mbappe would have been in- LeahRevelle (@leahrevelle) April 13, 2021
Why on earth did the linesman flag Mbappe offside? He was clearly on and through on goal, I thought they were supposed to let the play run?

Looool Mbappe was onside, why is the ref signalling offside so early anyway

One Twitter user wrote: "Flag should've stayed down. Mbappe might not have been offside."
A second tweeted: "Bayern get away with one as Mbappe is wrongly flagged offside."
A third added: "Ehm Mbappe wasn't offside there."
The linesman flagging offside proved crucial as the French giants went behind thanks to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who headed home from close range.
