Champions League

Wan-Bissaka handed RED CARD after Cristiano Ronaldo goal in Champions League


CRISTIANO RONALDO has given Man Utd the lead, but they may still have their work cut out to pick up three points away at Young Boys.

That’s because Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been handed a red card for a dangerous challenge.

United were knocked out of the competition last season in the group stages before reaching the final of the Europa League, where they lost on penalties to Villarreal.

Their other matches will feature a reunion with Villarreal and a clash with Gian Piero Gasperini’s exciting Atalanta team.

    United were cruising when they took the lead inside a quarter of an hour.

    Fernandes’ ball in is an absolute beauty with the outside of his right foot.

    Pinpoint for his Portuguese pal Ronaldo who squeezed it under the keeper for the opener.

    But Wan-Bissaka’s red card with 10 minutes left of the half – no question it was a red – makes life tougher as the hosts came into the game towards the end.

    Work to do.

    Ball in is good from the left and flies through the box for Fassnacht coming in at the back post.

    He’s free and 12 yards from goal on the right and fires low and hard and wide of goal.

  • YOUNG BOYS 0-1 MAN UTD

    36′ Martins is up and OK to continue.

    Wan-Bissaka was on the stretch in the Young Boys half and goes over the top of the ball, on top of Martins’ ankle who is in some pain.

    Referee in no doubt.

    Sancho loses possession again on halfway.

    29′ United’s No7 drops deep this time to find possession on halfway and sends Sancho clear down the right.

    He has acres of room to drive towards the box and has two to find in the middle but waits too long and is dispossessed.

    Wouldn’t be unfair to say Sancho is miles off the pace so far.
