    Canadian starts for Bayern Munich

     MUNICH (CP) -- Calgary teenager Owen Hargreaves started for Bayern Munich on Friday as the German champion defeated UEFA Cup champion Galatasaray of Turkey 3-1 in the opening match of the Masters 2000 tournament.

     And he could see action against English champion Manchester United in Saturday's final of the four-club friendly competition, organized to celebrate Bayern Munich's centenary.

     Manchester United defeated Real Madrid 1-0 on an 89th-minute goal by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the other game Friday,

     That sets up a replay of the 1999 Champions League final, when Manchester beat Bayern Munich 2-1 with goals in injury time, one of them coming from Solskjaer.

     The two teams will meet Saturday with Galatasaray and Real Madrid playing for third place.

     Hargreaves, 19, gave way to Michael Weisinger at the start of the second half.

     Paraguayan striker Roque Santa Cruz, Ghanaian defender Sami Kuffour and German substitute Alexander Zickler scored for Bayern Munich before Romanian star Gheorghe Hagi replied for Galatasaray with one minute remaining.

     Real Madrid and Manchester United rested many of their stars, electing not to start new signings Luis Figo or Fabien Barthez, respectively.

     Fernando Morientes missed a good chance for Real early in the match while Paul Scholes' shot from the edge of Real's penalty area just missed the target in the 40th minute.

     Ryan Giggs had the best chance for United in the 75th minute, but his chipped shot was caught by Cesar.

     The English side was the more enterprising in the second half and Cesar stopped a good shot by Solskjaer with less than 10 minutes left in the match that disappointed 28,000 fans at Munich's Olympic stadium.

     With two minutes left, United failed to find the net after an indirect free kick deep in Real's area, but Skolskjaer connected on a long pass one minute later to slot the ball past Cesar.
