The first set of this season’s Champions League matches took place yesterday, but none shocked the fans as much as Young Boys vs Manchester United. The game was actually placed on the 6:45 time slot, as everyone thought that it would be one sided but fans and higher ups were soon shocked. Young Boys managed to beat a 10-man Manchester United after scoring the winner in the 95th minute.

Manchester United started off the match in good fashion, bossing possession stats and challenging the goal keeper multiple times. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal of the game from an exquisite Bruno Fernandes assist. The game was going well for the Red Devils until the 35th minute when right back Aaron Wan Bissaka got himself sent off after a dubious challenge.
Manchester United managed to survive the first half but couldn’t stop the Swiss champions in the second half. Moumi Ngamaleu scored Young Boys’ first goal after a nice play from the team. Young Boys continued pressurizing the Manchester United defence and finally found their opening in the 95th minute when Jesse Lingard single handedly assisted Theoson Siebatcheu an open goal.
The other group F game between Villareal and Atalanta ended in a 2-2 draw. Manchester United will be hoping for a good result in their next Champions League match against Villareal to avoid a shock early exit.
