新しい星, チャンピオンズリーグのマンチェスターユナイテッドの古い問題

それでも、昨シーズンの失敗したキャンペーンから、火曜日にスイスでひどく始まったキャンペーンに持ち越された同じ種類の問題—防御の誤りと、タイミングの悪いレッドカードにつながる規律の欠如。.

Even new signings Ronaldo and Raphaël Varane — four-time Champions League winners together at Real Madrid — could not save the stellar and expensively assembled Man United team from defeat against unheralded Young Boys.

代わりに, it was another 2-1 loss at the lowest-ranked team in its group.

We did that last year in Europe,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said, recallingtwo sloppy counter-attacks against (イスタンブール) Başakşehir. And we lost that game (火曜日) in the last seconds.

A slack backpass in stoppage time by Jesse Lingard, a substitute who replaced Ronaldo, gifted the chance that American forward Jordan Siebatcheu took to win the game for Young Boys.

That’s football for you at the highest level,” Solskjaer said. “Lack of concentration, make a mistake and you get punished.

The Premier League leaders had been under pressure from the 35th minute when defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for a hard foul. Leading 1-0 from Ronaldo’s 13th-minute strike, Man United failed to get a shot on goal the rest of the way.

The red card helped tilt the game away from the three-time European champions just as it did last year when midfielder Fred was sent off against Paris Saint-Germain. That turned an evenly poised game into a 3-1 loss at Old Trafford last November, and gave back the gains from starting the group by winning in Paris.

Everyone thought we were through after two games last year,” recalled Solskjaer, whose team also routed Leipzig 5-0 last October then lost the decisive last group game in Germany.

The story of Solksjaer’s managing in the Champions League has been highs and lows with little middle ground. His team was twice triumphant at PSG — including in the round of 16 3月 2019 — but has now lost seven of 11 一致する.

We know we have given ourselves a more difficult task than what we did last year,” Solskjaer said. “You need 10, maybe 12 ポイント. You need to win your home games. We have got two home games next and we have got to focus on them.

That next opponent on Sept. 29 is a Unai Emery-coached Villarreal team unlikely to be intimidated after beating Man United in the Europa League final in May. A switch to the second-tier competition was the consequence for placing third behind PSG and Leipzig.

Ronaldo has never played in the Europa League for Man United, Real Madrid or Juventus. He did play two games in its predecessor, the UEFA Cup, に 2002 as a 17-year-old youngster for Sporting Lisbon.

Now with a Champions League record 135 goals in a record-equaling 177 ゲーム, Ronaldo has time to steer his teammates back on course in a competition he helped the club win in 2008.

It’s fortunate that it is the first game of the group,” United captain Harry Maguire said, “and we have loads of time to bounce back from it.
