Ronaldo scored the first goal of the new season, but Bern hit back twice. Salzburg’s Adeyemi is fouled three times, but only one penalty goes in.

Tspit of a goal from returning Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United has botched the start of the new Champions League season. At the Swiss champions Young Boys Bern, Manchester lost 1: 2 (1: 0) on Tuesday evening. Jordan Siebatcheu scored the winning goal in stoppage time after a bad pass from Jesse Lingard for the Young Boys, who have been coached by David Wagner since this season (90 + 5 minutes).

Champions League record scorer Ronaldo had scored the first goal of the new season in the premier class (13th). In addition, Ronaldo became a record player with his 177th appearance – on par with his former Real Madrid teammate Iker Casillas. As can be seen in the photos, Ronaldo also took care of a folder before the game – this was hit by a shot by the Portuguese while warming up.

Manchester had to play for a long time after a red card against Aaron Wan-Bissaka (35th). Moumi Ngamaleu (66.) scored the equalizer for the brisk Swiss – before Siebatcheu made the sensation perfect with the final whistle.

Four penalties and one expulsion

In the Group G game with VfL Wolfsburg, RB Salzburg did not get more than 1-1 (1-1) at FC Sevilla despite three penalties and 40 minutes in excess. The German international Karim Adeyemi was fouled three times in the first half. The first was missed by the 19-year-old (13th), the second by Luka Sucic (21st), and the third by Sucic (37th).
