Man United came back from behind yet again as they beat Atalanta 3-2 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo completed the comeback scoring the third goal in the 3-2 win. He scored a brilliant header as Man United scored 3 in the second half to complete the turnaround against Atlanta.

Manchester United were in really poor form coming into this Champions League clash in Group F. United came into this game after suffering a horrible 4-2 loss against Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

As a reaction to the loss Ole Gunnar Solskjær dropped the likes of Pual Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Jadon Sancho on the bench. Atalanta too haven’t had the greatest of starts to the season having won only four of their eight matches in Serie A.

Man United 3-2 Atlanta: Match analysis

Man United started the game very poorly and were on the back foot straight away. And just were not able to cope with the energy and pressing game of Atlanta. In the 15th minute, Mario Pasalic scored the first goal of the game from a Davide Zappacosta pass.

Atlanta doubled their lead as Merih Demiral scored from a corner in the 29th minute. Merih Demiral also picked up an injury but decided to play on with the injury. And was by far the best player on the pitch in the first half.

Man United did have 2 good chances during the dying minutes of the first half. Fred failed to hit the target from a Bruno Fernandes pass. Marcus Rashford hit the top of the crossbar. Man United in the second half looked a completely different side.

In the 53rd minute, Marcus Rashford pulled one goal back as he scored from a beautiful through-ball by Fernandes. Rashford has now scored 2 goals in 2 games since his return from injury. David De Gea pulled of a brilliant double save to deny Atlanta another goal.

Harry Maguire made it all level in the game as he drilled the ball home at the back post. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the match-winner yet again. As he scored a brilliant header from a superb cross from Luke Shaw.
