Full time: Young Boys 2 - 1 Manchester United

United started the game perfectly when Ronaldo fired the visitors ahead but it was all Young Boys from the moment that Wan-Bissaka was sent off.

Ngamaleu equalised for the hosts before a late, late goal from Siebatcheu sealed all three points and gave them a perfect start to their Champions League campaign.

United will be devastated with how the game ended and have lots to do now to seal qualification to the round of 16.
