Young Boys stuns Manchester United in UEFA Champions League

Jesse Lingard would have had trouble sleeping after making an erroneous back pass to David de Gea allowing USA’s Jordan Siebatcheu to send one flying into the net in the injury time. The error handed over a two-one win to the Swiss Club Young Boys as the home crowd basked in the euphoria. This sums up the night for the United outfit who began with full flair after the returnee Ronaldo bagged a goal within the first thirteen minutes. However, troubles started to flow for United when Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a red-card in the first half and the ten-men lineup had to deal with a relentless attack by Young Boys.

Nicolas Ngamelu struck at the sixty-six-minute mark to tie the game but the biggest blunder came five minutes into stoppage time when a draw looked inevitable. However, nothing is inevitable in the world of sports other than surprises as Manchester United played one of their most underwhelming games in recent memory. Young Boys also deserves credit for attacking at a terrific rate controlling the possession 54% of the time and having 19 cracks at the goal with five attempts on target compared to just two by Man United.
