6 min: Johnsen brings down Jancker on the edge of the penalty area for the game's first free-kick and Basler's low drive curves round the end of the wall and past Schmeichel.

8 min: Zickler creates another worrying moment in the United defence, getting away from Stam to meet Basler's cross but putting his shot off target.

14 min: Gary Neville's long throw starts a scramble in the Bayern area with the ball eventually ricocheting out off Cole as United's first hint of a chance comes and goes.

20 min: Yorke flicks on Beckham's cross to threaten Kahn's goal, but the Bayern keeper manages to claw it away.

28 min: Matthaus makes long run out of defence and sets up a shot from Zickler, but it goes tamely wide of Schmeichel's post.

30 min: Beckham's corner, United's sixth to none for Bayern at that stage, eludes everyone as it goes across a crowded Bayern six-yard box.

36 min: Basler and the dangerous Zickler combine to earn Bayern's first corner, but Babbel is penalised for pushing when the ball comes over.

46 min: Matthaus's ball allows Jancker to outpace Johnsen but Schmeichel forces him wide and concedes the corner.

53 min: Babbel almost gets the telling touch with his head to Basler's corner as Bayern continue to look marginally the more dangerous.

55 min: United's best chance yet as the previously anonymous Blomqvist gets a boot to Giggs' cross. He cannot control it and it goes over the bar.

59 min: First yellow card of the night as Tarnat and Effenberg slide in on the surging Giggs.

63 min: Basler creates a scare with a 45-yard lob that beats Schmeichel but also just clears the bar.

65 min: United make the obvious substitution, their FA Cup final hero Sheringham coming into the action in place of Blomqvist.

70 min: Bayern also make their first change, bringing on the experienced international midfield player Scholl in place of Zickler.

78 min: Basler's run at the United defence sets up Scholl for a lovely chip that beats the leaping Schmeichel but comes back off the post.

79 min: Butt hits the ball across the face of goal and United bring on Solskjaer for the ineffective Cole.

81 min: Solskjaer's first touch is a flying header which draws his best save yet from Kahn.

82 min: Scholl threatens again, racing through on goal for a shot that Schmeichel has to dive full length to keep out.

83 min: Bayern are even closer to a second goal when Jancker's overhead kick hits the crossbar and bounces to safety.

86 min: Solskjaer's backheel gives Sheringham United's first clear chance to take the game into sudden death but his shot is saved.

87 min: Neville's cross sees Yorke miskick with a clear sight of goal before Solskjaer also demands a save.

90 min: Beckham's corner is only part cleared, Giggs plays it back in and Sheringham gets just enough of a boot to it to steer in inside the post.

92 min: Another corner with 30 seconds of added time remaining, Sheringham nodding on and Solskjaer volleying into the top corner.
