Young Boys 1-1 Man Utd LIVE SCORE: Cristiano Ronaldo strike cancelled out after Wan-Bissaka red card

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.

      HT: YOUNG BOYS 0-1 MAN UTD

      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.

      • ON – Diogo Dalot

      YOUNG BOYS 0-1 MAN UTD

      35' Game changing?

      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.
