Young Boys shock a high-flying Manchester United 2-1 with a late grasp winner. Jordan Siebatcheu netted in stoppage time to kick-off their Champions League campaign with a big win.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in the 13th minute courtesy of a Bruno Fernandes assist. This was the Portuguese’s 3rd goal in 2 matches since returning to Old Trafford.

However, things went downhill for the Red Devils following a red card to Wan-Bissaka. The right-back was sent off after a rash challenge on Christopher Martins Pereira.

Jordan Siebatcheu the Hero

Young Boys equalized in the 2nd half as Moumi Ngamaleu found the back of the net in the 66th minute. A low cross from Hefti from the right allowed the forward to toe-poke in at the near post.

After that, it did seem like Manchester United were holding out. Ronaldo was substituted in the 72nd minute for man-in-form Jesse Lingard.

Unfortunately, it was not Lingard’s night. Siebatcheu latched onto a stray back pass from the Englishman to fire Young Boys to victory, sparking wild celebrations.

Young Boys coach David Wagner: “For a club of our size to make the headlines for one or two days in Europe and to beat Man United, one of the giants of European football, it’s really special“.

On the flip side, it is a unfavourable start for Solskjaer in Group F. Next up, they face tougher tests against Atalanta and Villarreal.

Addressing the mistake that cost them the match, Solskjaer: “That’s football at the highest level, a lack of concentration, make a mistake and you get punished“.

In the other game, Villarreal and Atalanta drew 2-2. Remo Freuler put the Italians ahead 6 minutes in. Goals from Manuel Trigueros and Arnaut Danjuma put the Yellow Submarine in the lead. However, Robin Gosens struck late to deny the Spanish side 3 points.
