UCL: Ronaldo’s Strike Not Enough As Young Boys Condemn United To Defeat


Young Boys came from a goal down to register a 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Tuesday evening in the Champions League group F opener.

United took the lead in the 13th minute, and it was him again, Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his third goal in just two appearances for the Red Devils. Bruno Fernandes picked out Ronaldo who put the ball past David von Ballmoos.

Wan-Bissaka clattered into a careless challenge on Martins Pereira – his studs were up and he caught him on the ankle, sending the Young Boys player rolling onto the floor. It was an instant red card for the right-back.

Young Boys grabbed the leveller in the second half through Nicolas Ngamaleu. Elia sent in a superb cross from the right, that flashed through the six-yard box. Ngamaleu got a foot ahead of Varane to flick the ball past De Gea.

In the stoppage time, Young Boys turned it around and it was after Lingard played a back-pass blindly and straight to the path Siebatcheu, who beat De Gea and won the game for the Young Boys.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the first Manchester United player to be shown a straight red card in a UEFA Champions League match since Nani against Real Madrid in March 2013.
