Bayern Munich 0 v 0 Manchester United (Bayern win 7-6 on pens)

United lost their first pre-season game of the warm up campaign in a dramatic penalty shoot out after a sluggish 0-0 draw.

On home soil in the Audi Cup final, Bayern Munich had the lion's share of the first half and continued their dominance after the break.

United showed the odd spark in the final third with Dimitar Berbatov perhaps the best for the visitors tonight. Michael Owen and substitute Wayne Rooney both had quiet nights.

After both sides scored their opening six penalties, Jonny Evans missed allowing Bayern to clinch the trophy.

It was the reds' sixth pre-season game. The previous five - all but one on the Asia Tour - ended in victories.

Next stop is a home friendly with Valencia on Wednesday night before the Community Shield showdown with Chelsea a week on Saturday.
