The 100 club! Bayern Munich stalwart Thomas Muller joins Real Madrid legends Cristiano Ronaldo & Iker Casillas in exclusive Champions League group after Man Utd victory

Thomas Muller became just the third player to reach 100 wins in the Champions League when Bayern Munich beat Manchester United 4-3 on Wednesday.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Muller came off the bench after 87 minutes as his side started their 2023-24 campaign with a good result on home soil. Bayern were 3-1 up when he took scorer Harry Kane's place, but the home team conceded two more afterwards as Casemiro netted a late double. Muller and his co-stars were able to hold out for the three points, however.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Muller has now made 143 appearances in Europe's most prestigious club competition and been involved in an incredible 100 victories. The only other players to have won as many games in the tournament are Real Madrid icons Cristiano Ronaldo, who won 115 times, and Iker Casillas, who racked up 101.

DID YOU KNOW?

Bayern's win at the Allianz Arena was their sixth against United in the Champions League. No team has won more games against United in the competition, though Barcelona have beaten them just as many times as the German giants.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Bayern will hope to pick up another victory this weekend when they take on Bochum in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
