De Gea’s save vs Young Boys: The Manchester United goalkeeper made a brilliant save to keep United in the game.
Manchester United qualified for the round-of-16 of the Champions League with a win over Young Boys. Marouane Fellaini scored an injury-time winner for the side as United secured a 1-0 win over Swiss champions.
Jose Mourinho’s men endured a frustrating night as various chances came begging for the United forwards. However, poor finishing from the players almost cost them the game late in the second half, if not for De Gea’s extraordinary acrobatics in front of the goal.
The Spanish goalkeeper made a wonderful save to keep United in the game, and Fellaini ensured a win on the night.
Manchester United will play against Valencia in their final group game of the Champions League before being drawn for the next round of the competition.
