Young Boys 2-1 Manchester United: as it happened

A look at the group standings and Young Boys will be very happy with that.


And sure enough, #OleOut is trending on Twitter.


And that's the whistle! What a result for Young Boys, whose coach Wagner completely outfoxed Solskjaer with his substitutions and his second half tactics. There'll be an inquiry tomorrow into what the United coach did in reaction to the red card and it's going to be a very, very long trip back to Manchester for Wan-Bissaka.


The Wankdorf goes mental as the US forward latches onto a horrible back pass from Lingard to slot past De Gea and hand his side victory!


Goooooooooooool! Jordan Siebatcheu!


Kanga charges down the left and gets a decent cross away but he was too fast for his teammates there and there's nobody coming into the area to get on the end of it.


Cédric Zesiger and Wilfried Kanga on for Young Boys, Elia, who has been excellent this evening, and Lauper make way.


Five minutes added!


Martial coming on for United, Fred makes way.


Lauper! What a crack from the midfielder and De Gea is at full stretch to touch that one over the bar.


Ngamaleu! It wasn't far away as the Cameroon forward lashed his left boot at a knock-down. Young Boys look by far the more likely to nick a late winner here.


Silvan Hefti, who has put in a shift this evening, makes way for Miralem Sulejmani.


That's a staggering stattistic from United's point of view: Young Boys have now chalked up 17 attempts to just two for Solskjaer's side.


After a brief pause for a pitch invader the delivery is sent in and it sows a bit of panic in the home defence but is eventually slammed clear.


Free kick for United now as Pogba goes down. It's a ways out but the visitors will look to hit someone in the box here.


Varane! He had to get that right as he hooks the ball clear right on his own goal line. That was a nervy moment for De Gea.


The home side cut out a ball aimed at Lingard and United are incapable of putting togther an attack at the moment. Another corner for Young Boys...


Hmmmm, Ronaldo is coming off for Jesse Lingard and Fernandes makes way for Matic. If United end up losing this Solskjaer will have some explaining to do to justify that.


Corner for the home side now as Elia's cross is deflected behind.


How will Solskjaer react to that? United's game plan in the second half of simply hoping Young Boys don't score has gone up in smoke.


Gooooooooooool! It's been coming! Elia crosses for his strike partner Moumi Ngamaleu to touch the ball past De Gea and the home side are level!


And that really epitomises United at the moment, De Gea booked for time-wasting with half an hour left.


Solskjaer is in deep discussion with his assistants in the United dug-out. He doesn't like what he's seeing and unsurprisingly so. His side are being pinned back and haven't staged a threatening attack since the restart.


The home side are nearing 50 percent possession now, up from 35 percent in the first half, and have racked up 11 shots to United's two. 


Young Boys are enjoying plenty of the ball at the moment but can't get near De Gea's goal with United setting up a defensive perimeter on the edge of the area. A couple of efforts from distance have not bothered the United keeper but you wonder how long the visitors can keep this up.


Ronaldo goes down in the area under minimal contact and is not happy when the ref waves his appeals away.


There's a lengthy pause as Martins plucks himself off the turf after a challenge with Fernandes.


We're back underway! It's a tactical tussle now as Young Boys seek to break down a 10-man United.

That's the end of Donny van de Beek's afternoon as he is replaced by Raphaël Varane.


And that's the half! Ronaldo's goal separates the sides after 45 minutes but Young Boys will fancy their chances of redressing that balance against 10 men after the break.


One minute added at the end of the half as Fassnacht goes in the book.


Good work from Elia on the left tees up Vincent Sierro, but the shot is straight at De Gea and the Spaniard gathers with little fuss.


United may need to throw caution to the wind in the final five minutes of the half. Another goal would give the visitors a bit of breathing space and Solskjaer the chance to shut up shop after the break with a tactical tweak before Wagner can adjust to take advantage of his numerical superiority.


Fassnacht! Young Boys almost capitalise immediately as a ball across the United area falls to the midfielder, whose shot flashes past De Gea's far post.


And the United boss reacts by taking off Sancho and sending on Diogo Dalot.


Straight red! Wan-Bissaka gets his marching orders for a horrible challenge on Elia, the United defender planting his studs into the top of the strikers boot. That's a blow for Solskjaer, whose side were in total control of the game but now have to play the best part of an hour with 10 men. 


Aebischer! A half-chance for the home side as the Swiss midfielder blasts over from the edge of the area.


Patient build-up from United and Wan-Bissaka eventually crosses for Ronaldo at the far post but Von Ballmoos is up to gather with the Portuguese lurking.


United try a training ground job instead as Fernandes looks to tee up Ronaldo but it's read well by the home defence and cleared.


Free kick for United in Ronaldo range as the Portuguese is floored by Camara.


De Gea makes a decent save at one end and United break, Ronaldo forcing Von Ballmoos into another.


Three half chances for Young Boys from the initial delivery as United fail to clear the danger, Camara with the best of them but the Guinean didn't manage to get his full force on the header.


The home side have a corner though and the big lads are trotting up.


United are in control in midfield now, a goal to the good. There is little urgency from the visitors, who have scored with their only shot of the game so far.


And that, stat fans, is Ronaldo's first goal for United in the competition since May 5, 2009.

Who else? The Portuguese arrives at the far post to meet a cross and clips the ball through the legs of Von Ballmoos, who almost stops it but the ball rolls over the line and Ronaldo is off the mark in the Champions League!


Goooooooooooool! Ronaldo!


Elia! The DRC striker twists and turns Maguire and pings in an inviting cross that nobody is there to meet. He gees up his teammates to attack the ball with United looking vulnerable against the break.


Bruno Fernandes manages to work his way into the area but is immediately crowded out by yellow shirts and his lay off for Sancho is hacked clear.


United look to build an attack on the left and end up lofting the ball towards Ronaldo. Young Boys are well set up and will be happy to deal with that sort of approach all afternoon.


Plenty of lost possession in midfield at the moment as both sides feel each other out.


Elia! United get into a bit of a mess and the home side jump on the chance, the DRC striker missing the far post by a whisker.


We're off! United get the ball rolling in Bern.

And here we go with the Champions League anthem!

The teams are coming out now and the stadium is alive with colour as the home fans wave gold and black flags in unison.

Ronaldo bags another record

The Portuguese will make his 177th Champions League appearance this afternoon, equalling Iker Casillas' all-time record in the competition.

Young Boys starting XI confirmed

Fabian Lustenberger, Jean-Pierre Nsame, Esteban Petignat, Joel Monteiro and Nico Mainer are all unavailable for the home side today. Moumi Ngamaleu and Meschak Elia will lead the line and look to cause some trouble among the United back four.

Manchester United starting XI confirmed

Solskjaer has named his starting XI and while there is no surprise that Cristiano starts it is odd to see Donny van de Beek in a United XI. The Dutchman has fallen off the radar since his move to Old Trafford in the wake of Ajax's excellent Champions League run a couple of years ago and he will be eager to impress this afternoon.

Jadon Sancho also gets the nod with the prolific Bruno Fernandes in support.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also has a point to prove in Europe's elite club competition, where he has pulled off some remarkable victories but holds an unflattering record of six losses in 10 Champions League games overall.

David Wagner took over at Young Boys in the summer after a forgettable experience in the Bundesliga with Schalke and will be looking to restore his reputation at the Swiss champions after emerging at Borussia Dortmund II under the tutelage of Jürgen Klopp before a largely successful stint at Huddersfield Town.

In their last appearance in the Champions League, Young Boys landed in a group of death that featured United, Juventus and Valencia, taking four points from their group games courtesy of a 1-1 draw with the Spanish side and a 2-1 win over the Italian giants. Guillaume Hoarau provided all three of those goals but is now at Young Boys' domestic rivals Sion.

United's opponents today do not boast quite the European pedigree that Ronaldo and United share but they did reach the semi-finals of the European Cup back in 1958-59, losing 3-1 to Reims. The hosts have won the last four consecutive Swiss Super League titles and reached the last 16 in the Europa League last season, losing to Ajax. 

In his first spell at United, Ronaldo bagged 15 Champions League goals and added another 105 at Real Madrid with 14 more coming during his three seasons at Juventus.

Ronaldo did not take long to get off the mark after his Old Trafford return, netting twice in a victory over Newcastle at the weekend, and few would bet against him adding to his record 134 Champions League goals this afternoon against the Swiss champions.
