Erratic Manchester United Lose To Young Boys FC

Manchester United dominated the first minutes of their opening group F Champions league match, and their dominance soon paid of late into the first half when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal off a Bruno Fernandez cross.

Wan-Bissaka got red-carded ten minutes to halftime, and this dealt a devastating blow to the Manchester United defence.

To patch up the defensive overlap, Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought on Raphael Varane in place of Van De Beek. This greatly compromised the visiting team's ability to attack, and got them under immense defensive pressure as Young Boys intensified their attack.

Their efforts eventually paid off, when Moumi Ngamaleu scored the equaliser in the sixty sixth minute.

Manchester United then proceeded to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo for Jesse Lingard, a decision which eventually cost them the match.

In the dying minutes of added time, Jesse Lingard, miscalculated a back pass that landed right in the feet of Siebatcheu who wasted no time in firing a shot past the helpless De Gea to win the match for the home side. Fulltime scores Young Boys 2-1 Manchester United.

In another Champions League match, Sevilla drew 1-1 with Salzburg.

Five more matches are still in progress.
