Man-U Suffers Stunning Upset to Young Boys (2-1) While Chelsea & Bayern Get Off to Hot Starts

The Matchday 1 kickstart to the UEFA Champions League came with one major surprise on Tuesday — a stunning loss for Manchester United at the hands of Young Boys (2-1). Cristiano Ronaldo scored early (13’) to launch what looked like a Man-U rout, but two second-half goals from the underdogs played spoiler. Young Boys’ Theoson Siebatcheu scored the game-winner five minutes into extra time as Ronaldo was upstaged in a shocking loss. Young Boys outshot Man-U 19-2 in a forgettable start to the Champions League for the Red Devils.
