Manchester United have been dumped out of the Champions League after suffering a 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were placed immediately on the back foot as Manchester City loanee Angelino fired the German side into the lead.

The 23-year-old Spaniard would add to United's woes after he whipped in a cross to Amadou Haidara, who smashed a volley in at the back post to double Leipzig's lead in the 13th minute.

United struggled to make any sort of headway early in the second half and Justin Kluivert clipped the ball past David de Gea to put Leipzig 3-0 up in the 69th minute.

However, the Red Devils attempted to stage a late comeback and pulled one back in the 80th minute after the in-form Bruno Fernandes converted from the spot-kick.

Only minutes later Paul Pogba's header hit both United skipper Harry Maguire and Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate on its way into the back of the net.

United desperately pushed for a third in the hopes of rescuing their Champions League campaign, but the Red Devils succumbed to a 3-2 defeat.

United have now dropped into the Europa League as Julian Nagelsmann's Leipzig side will head into the knockout stages of the Champions League.
