Man United ended their Champions League group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw to Young Boys, failing to exact revenge for their 2-1 defeat in the opening fixture of the competition.
Mason Greenwood gave the hosts the lead with an acrobatic finish. But a much-changed United side struggled to maintain their shape and composure, as Donny van de Beek’s mistake allowed Fabian Rieder to draw level before the break and earn a point for the Swiss outfit at Old Trafford.
There’s one more game left to be played in Group F after Atalanta’s clash with Villarreal was postponed due to heavy snow.
United had already won the group after their win against Unai Emery’s side under Michael Carrick, but Young Boys’ European journey for this campaign ended tonight, as they needed three points to keep their Europa League hopes alive.
For the Red Devils, the focus now switches to the next stage of the competition, where they will face one of the second-placed teams in other groups. Three of the four Premier League teams have finished as group winners, leaving some big European names to be drawn against United in the round of 16.
Paris Saint-Germain , Atletico Madrid , Sporting Lisbon, Inter, RB Salzburg, and Benfica are the six possible opponents for Ralf Rangnick’s men in the last 16. The draw will be made on Monday, December 13.
