A dramatic late winner from Jordan Siebatcheu gave Young Boys a historic win over Manchester United on the opening night of the Champions League.
The game started relatively slowly, but on 13 minutes a moment of magic from Bruno Fernandes, who arced a delicious pass into the path of Ronaldo, again moving with purpose and intelligence. David von Ballmoos managed to get a leg on the shot, but the power took it by him, and Ronaldo had his third goal in two games.
United looked comfortable thereafter, but then on 35 minutes Aaron Wan-Bissaka overstretched pursuing his own poor touch, leaving studs on Christopher Martins’ foot, and was shown a straight red card for his trouble. Young Boys, though, could not capitalise, Christian Fassnacht missing an extremely presentable chance as United reorganised.
Young Boys maintained pressure after half-time as United struggled to get out – though the referee refused to allow what looked like aa clear penalty and red card after Mohamed Camara fouled Ronaldo.

Then, on 67 minutes, Meschak Elia’s cross skipped off the turf, allowing Nicolas Ngamaleu to nip in front of Rapahel Varane and poke an equaliser past David de Gea.
Young Boys pushed hard to find a winner as United struggled to get out – mystifyingly so – but they got their luck right at the end when Jesse Lingard badly misjudged a back-pass. Siebatcheu gleefully jumped onto it and calmly slotted past De Gea, kicking off the mother and father of all pile-ons.
