United debuts in the Champions League with a comfortable victory

Manchester United beat Young Boys in Bern (0-3). Juan Mata came on the pitch in the second half and was about to score. Pogba (2) and Martial scored the goals that place the team as leaders of Group H.

Manchester United debuted in the 2018/19 Champions League with a brilliant victory at the Stade de Suisse in Bern. The Red Devils, with the participation of Juan Mata, thrashed the Young Boys (0-3) and climbed to the top of the complicated Group H in the opening day.

Mata replaced Rashford in the 69th minute and he just missed by inches a good shot that went out with the goalkeeper already beaten. In the final stretch, the Spanish international, in his second attempt, scored a goal but was disallowed for being off-side.

Before Juan came on, two goals from Pogba (minute 35 and 44 – penalty) and Martial (minute 66) cemented the third consecutive win for United (Burnley and Watford). De Gea was again at a great level. The next appointment for ManU will be on Saturday against Wolverhampton. The Champions League will not return until 2 October, when Mata will face Valencia, the club in which he established himself as a professional footballer. It will be a very special match for the Asturian.
