Manchester United went to Switzerland to play against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League. Despite conceding the first goal, the Young Boys scored two goals in the second half and secured a full three points from Manchester United.
Manchester United’s starting XI was really good. They controlled the game in the first half. In the 13th minute, Manchester United attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes crossed the ball towards Ronaldo in the box. Ronaldo, however, did not make a mistake in putting the ball in the net. As a result, Manchester United took the lead in just 13 minutes. But the problems started when Aron Wan Bissaka got a red card in 35 minutes. He fouled Young Boys midfielder Martin. It was a messy foul, and the referee had no doubt showing a red card to the Manchester United right-back Aron Wan-Bissaka. So, Manchester United had to play with the ten men against the home team. After the red card, Ole replaced Jadon Sancho with Diago Dalot.
In the second half, Young Boys looked dangerous. They were the better side in the second half. They created chances from both wings. As a result, Young Boys equalized M. Ngamaleu’s goal in 66 minutes. That goal came from S. Hefti’s assist. The Young Boys scored again at the very last minute. It was because of Jesse Lingard’s mistake. He wanted the ball to pass to David de Gea. But it was a wrong back-pass. As a result, Siebatcheu scored the winning goal, beating the Manchester United goalkeeper.
Throughout the game, the Young Boys have played better than Manchester United. They took 19 shots towards the goal, and Manchester United took just two shots. Moreover, the Reds could not take a single shot in the second half. So, 90 minutes later, the Young Boys won 2-1 against Manchester United.
When speaking to the MUTV after the match, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire said,
“We conceded a scruffy goal which was really unlucky. Although we weren’t playing our greatest football and we weren’t the biggest threat at the other end of the pitch, we looked really solid, didn’t concede many chances, and then, obviously, they go away with the victory. It’s the first game in the group, we’ve got many games to bounce back, so we must do.”
