82′ – Bailly booked for striking the ball towards the moon in frustration with today’s referee

81′ – The ball comes out to the edge of the box and Herrera and Pereira both think the other is going to hit it… So nobody does. Wasted chance.

Jose Mourinho gets a huge cheer from the fans as he backheels the ball to Shaw, waiting to take a throw-in.

80′ – CLOSE! Pulisic strikes one from the edge of the D and it’s just wide of Romero’s far post!

Worth nothing that with Valencia having been substituted off, Juan Mata is now wearing the captain’s armband.

Tuchel is showing Emre Mor some tactics with counters on a board during this drinks break.

51′ – Ousmane Dembele caught offside.

50′ – Dortmund corner as Bailly blocks Aubameyang’s cross.

HT: Manchester United 0-2 Borussia Dortmund

Can United find two second half goals without reply to see this game through to a penalty shootout?

Into added time in the first half now and Dortmund are still looking for another goal.

42′ – A promising United move ends with Mata being caught well, well offside.

41′ – Aubameyang almost gets a sensational second, looking to lob Sam Johnstone – but the young Englishman just manages to palm it away.

39′ – Aubameyang lashes a volley just wide of the near post after Schmelzer puts a great ball in for him.

37′ – Sokratis is booked for one foul too many on Memphis

36′ – Memphis, Herrera , Lingard and Mata link up and the ball is lofted towards Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but the ball just won’t sit at the right height for him to get a shot away. Better from United.


Aubameyang scores the penalty

United 0-2 Dortmund


Aubameyang attempts a bicycle kick and misses the target – but finds Antonio Valencia’s arm and the referee gives a penalty

The drinks break lasted two minutes – but we won’t necessarily see that added on at the end of the half

Mourinho is dishing out his instructions during the drinks break, speaking specifically to Memphis Depay and Juan Mata – it looks like he wants more width.

30′ – United are showing plenty of tenacity.

The players are having a drinks break, which is understandable given the temperature and humidity in Shanghai!

29′ – Bailly looks for Mata with a raking pass but it’s too long for the Spaniard.

26′ – A long ball towards Aubameyang is collected easily by Sam Johnstone, who sets United off down the left

23′ – Lingard goes through against Weidenfeller after a mistake by Schmelzer, but he hits it too early and not hard enough. An easy save.


Aubameyang drills the ball at Sam Johnstone, who parries the shot to Dembele. Johnstone blocks that effort too – but Valencia’s attempted clearance only reaches Castro, who scores an easy tap-in

18′ – Blind is penalised for a challenge on Castro about 30 yards out

16′ – Another Dortmund offside as Ramos is correctly flagged – but it’s a tight one!

14′ – Memphis releases Lingard down the right but he is closed down quickly and it comes to nothing more than another throw in

13′ – Some confusion as it looks like Mkhitaryan has been called offside from a throw-in, which isn’t possible… But it seems that the linesman called for a foul throw.

11′ – Dortmund are understandably the sharper of the two sides – the Germans have played four more pre-season games than United so far.

8′ – Sam Johnstone trusts his ability with the ball at his feet as he dribbles round Aubameyang and clears the ball

8′ – Aubameyang is called offside as United’s back four push up to deny him an opportunity.

8′ – No shots on goal so far, with most of the possession having being in midfield.

4′ – Memphis, who is playing as a lone striker, is covering plenty of ground already, helping out in the wide areas as well as showing good movement centrally

3′ – Eric Bailly seems to be settling well at United, and is already marshaling his defensive counterparts

1′ – Sokratis gets an important touch to stop Memphis going through 1-on-1 with Weidenfeller after a stray pass finds its way towards the Dutchman


Aubameyang and Kagawa get the game underway

Matt expects this game to be a good challenge for Jose’s men


A half-empty stadium for this game – but the fans who have turned up all seem to wearing the red of United!

Regi expects another pre-season win for United today:

The players are in the tunnel!
