Bayern Munich has denounced the racist taunts aimed at Dayot Upamecano.

Halfway through the second half, the France defender gave up a crucial penalty, and he was taken off.

After losing to Lazio in the Champions League on Wednesday, Bayern Munich has denounced the racist taunts aimed at Dayot Upamecano.

The 67th minute saw the dismissal of France defender Upamecano for giving up a penalty that Ciro Immobile converted to give Lazio a 1-0 first-leg round of 16 victory.

The German champions FC Bayern issued a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying, “FC Bayern strongly condemns the racist comments being directed towards Dayot Upamecano on social media.”

“Anyone who comments hateful words such as these is no fan of our club. We’re all behind you, Upa!”

Upamecano’s red card means the 25-year-old will miss the second leg in Munich on March 5.

After falling five points behind Xabi Alonso’s Bundesliga leaders after Saturday’s 3-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern’s failure put more pressure on former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

In November, Tuchel’s team again lost shockingly to Saarbrucken, a lower division team, in the German Cup’s second round.
