In Group F of the 2021-22 Champions League last night, Manchester United suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Young Boys. Besides this devastating match away at Bern, Switzerland in Group F football news, Villareal and Atalanta played a brilliant tie.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s first Champions League night after his return to Old Trafford with Manchester United ended in a stunning twist.
Switzerland’s Young Boys staged a memorable comeback to defeat 10-man Manchester United, who lead 0-1, by 2-1 in Group F.
Ronaldo, who scored twice on his second debut for the club against Newcastle United on Saturday, put United ahead first.
In the 13th minute, Bruno Fernandes perfectly set up a play for Ronaldo to open the scoring. Manchester United appeared to be steady on their way to a routine victory in Bern.
However, Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card late in the first half gave Young Boys some hope, and started United’s bad luck.
The Young Boys, with newfound energy, came back from behind when Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu equalized in the 66th minute.
After defending for nearly an hour with one man down, United appeared to be heading for a tie. It would have been a mercy for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to secure that one point from a tie.
But there was a stunning late twist as Jesse Lingard misjudged a backpass and gave Jordan Siebatcheu the perfect opening.
The latter, a Young Boys player, cleanlyslotted past David de Gea to secure a famous result for the Swiss side.
