UEFA Champions League, Manchester United News: United pull off a brilliant second-half comeback to beat Atalanta 3-2. The visitors led 2-0 at half-time, with Pasalic and Demiral both taking advantage of poor defending to get the goals. Rashford hit the bar before the break before pulling the first goal back in the second half.
McTominay hit the post before De Gea made an incredible double save to keep his side in it. Minutes later, Maguire equalized from a corner and it was Ronaldo who sealed the points for them again as he scored a header in the 81st minute.
One of the great comebacks ever happened. Cristiano Ronaldo was the one to score the winner in the 81st minute. The two sides were almost the same yesterday except Manchester United taking 8 more shots than Atalanta.
Pasalic scored the first goal of the game for Atalanta. The clever quick free-kick caught united out. Muriel played it to Zapacosta in the right who then fires a dangerous low cross for Pasalic. The finish was very clinical, A quick VAR was checked but the goal stood.
Atalanta were the ones to score the second goal too. This time it was Demiral who was suffering from a hamstring injury. The corner was very delicious for Demiral, Harry Maguire loses Demiral in the middle of the box at 6 yards. He then flicks the ball past the keeper in the left bottom corner.
United being 2 goals behind at halftime needed a few goals on their side to get 3 points in their bag. The desperate United had many opportunities to score but the lack of finishing did not end in a goal.
Marcus Rashford stepped up to score the first goal for his side. A perfect ball from Bruno Fernandes through the defenders gave enough time to Rashford to open his body and fire it to the far post in the right bottom corner.
United captain and defender Harry Maguire equalizes the game with 15min to go. The initial corner being poor was kept alive by Sancho on the right-hand side. But the second cross by Sancho was flicked by Cavani and fell for Maguire to fire it to the near the bottom corner for United.
A Quickstart lead the third and last for the Red Devils. Fernandes’ cross was cleared out but the cross by Luke Shaw ended for Ronaldo ahead of Palomino, who then head it past the keeper in the left bottom corner for the win.
