Manchester United had only two shots at goal the entire game and both shots were taken by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Red Devils did not have a single shot at goal after the 25th minute. Ronaldo now has equalled Iker Casillas record of the most Champions League appearances which is 177 appearances. He has scored in 17 straight UCL campaigns.
Manchester United started their first game of the new season's Champions League campaign with a very strong lineup. Donny Van De Beek was given his overdue start after his lack of game time cost him his international spot. Ronaldo was lively and it took him just 12 minutes to score his first Champions League goal in his second era as a Manchester United player and score his 135th Champions League goal. Wan Bissaka was show a straight red card after a heavy and reckless challenge ten minutes before halftime.
10 men united failed to protect their advantage and after constant pressing, Young Boys found an equalizer. The team which were showing no fear would continue with their persuit and pressure on the Manchester United defence. Jesse Lingard, after a very successful weekend, was subbed on for Ronaldo. His misplaced and reckless backpass error gifted Young Boys the winning goal and very important three points.
