Jesse Lingard HOWLER gifts win to Young Boys in 95th-minute of Man United’s Champions League opener after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card turned match following Cristiano Ronaldo opener
Jesse Lingard was the villain for Manchester United as his poor backpass gave Young Boys a last-gasp winner to consign the Red Devils to defeat in their first Champions League game.
In front of a raucous atmosphere at the Wankdorf Stadium in Bern, Cristiano Ronaldo got United’s evening off to the perfect start by netting his third goal in two matches since returning to the club, slotting home after Bruno Fernandes’ exquisite cross.
But the game turned on its head when United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for a high challenge on Young Boys’ Christopher Martins. The Swiss side dominated the match ever since.

The second-half saw Young Boys control the entire play, with Moumi Ngameleu poking the Swiss side level by getting ahead of substitute Raphael Varane in the penalty box.
And with the match appearing to head towards a draw, Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his backpass was careless, leaving American striker Jordan Siebatcheu to tuck past the United goalkeeper.
