Leroy Sane throws water bottle in rage after he is subbed off against Barcelona despite scoring
LEROY SANE threw a water bottle in rage after being subbed off against Barcelona – despite scoring in the match.
The former Manchester City forward doubled Bayern’s lead on 54 minutes, moments after Lucas Hernandez’s opener.
Sane was later replaced by Mathys Tel with ten minutes to go but it drew a furious reaction from the German.
He chucked a bottle on the ground and then stormed off onto the bench.
It turned out Robert Lewandowski got stage fright at his old palace as he failed to come back and haunt his old side.
The Pole, who signed for Barca for £43.6m in the summer, missed a string of golden chances against the club he scored a staggering 344 goals for in 375 games.
It was the first time Lewandowski had faced Bayern as an opposition player since he came on for Borussia Dortmund in 2014 before he began his eight year spell in Bavaria.
Hernandez and Sane showed him how it’s done with two goals in just three minutes in the second-half of the European heavyweight clash.
Lewandowski did, in fairness, conjure up the first bright spark, latching onto a loose pass to tee up Pedri, who broke free but was denied by an outstretched Manuel Neuer boot.
Thomas Muller joked before the match that Sadio Mane told him not to pass the ball to his old pal Lewandowski.
And this time around he picked out Sane with a delicious ball before the ex-City forward’s shot was blocked by Marcos Alonso.

Lewandowski was then left with his head in his hands after missing two clear cut chances.
He was teed up by Gavi, and took a brilliant first touch before unleashing a volley just over the bar.
A super sliding block from Noussair Mazraoui then denied Lewandowski a rifling shot just minutes later.
