Video: Upamecano’s sigh of relief as red card against Man City is immediately rescinded

Posted by

It could’ve been the worst start possible for Dayot Upamecano and Bayern Munich in their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Man City, but they were saved by the match officials.

Erling Haaland was bearing down on the Bavarian’s goal and about to pull the trigger when it appeared that he was upended by the defender.

The referee also thought so and brandished an immediate red, however, the assistant then quickly raised his flag for offside meaning that the hosts could breathe a sigh of relief.

At least Bayern Munich’s official Twitter account could see the funny side:
