    Mr Champions League to the rescue as Man Utd come back in a dramatic 2-2 draw against Atalanta

    By Muhammad Butt of Squawka

    Ronaldo to Man Utd rescue

    Published: 22:32, 2 November 2021

    On another dramatic night of Champions League action, Man Utd twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Atalanta.

    It was the Ronaldo rescue act yet again for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Red Devils needed their no. 7 to score twice to save them.

    Here’s how the players rated at Stadio di Bergamo:

    Man Utd

    David de Gea – 4 – Shocking mistake to allow Ilicic to open the scoring, let the ball run underneath him like a rookie. And then he was so weak and impotent, offering no resistance to Zapata as he returned the lead to Atalanta.

    Eric Bailly – 8 – Man Utd’s best player on the pitch by a million miles. Even as his ball-watching allowed Atalanta to score their game-winner, he nevertheless prevented countless other goals with incredible last-ditch interventions.

    Raphael Varane – 6 – Was playing well until he had to leave the field with an injury late in the first half.

    Harry Maguire – 4 – Looked shaky once Varane left the field. Really struggled for the second Atalanta goal.

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7 – A phenomenal defensive display but as per usual, preventing Maehle from impacting the game with 5/6 tackles. However, he wasn’t too effective with the ball.

    Scott McTominay – 7 – Worked really hard. Put himself about.

    Paul Pogba – 4 – Just atrocious from the start until he was mercifully subbed off. Nothing he tried came off and he was so sloppy in possession it was unreal. This was not the display of a World Cup winner.

    Luke Shaw – 6 – Aggressive and on the front foot from the start but didn’t use the ball well.

    Bruno Fernandes – 7 – Constantly drove Man Utd forward and pulled off a simply magical backheel to create the United equaliser. The instinct and understanding to pull that out and completely unbalance the defence were almost beyond belief. It was such a stupendous moment that Gian Piero Gasperini altered his entire gameplan to shut Fernandes down in the second half and, for the most part, it worked.

    Marcus Rashford – 5 – Looked lost in the middle of this system. Was he meant to blow the top off the defence? Or link play? It wasn’t clear and neither was he. Defended well but offered nothing in attack. Subbed off.

    Cristiano Ronaldo – 8 – Was on the periphery of the game but still showed up twice to drag his side back from the brink with two unreal stoppage-time goals. His first was a stupendous finish in first-half injury time and his second was a barely believable volley from the edge of the box, with a picture-perfect technique he lashed the ball home in the 92nd minute to equalise for United. No matter how poorly Man Utd play, Mr Champions League is always ready to rescue the Red Devils.


    Mason Greenwood (for Varane 38′) – 7 – Great pass in the build-up to the first equaliser and a beautifully deft assist for the second equaliser. Looked really sharp even though he was forced into a wide role.

    Edinson Cavani (for Rashford 69′) – 6 – Worked hard.

    Nemanja Matic (for Pogba 69′) – 6 – Stemmed the tide of Atalanta attacks in the middle of the pitch.

    Jadon Sancho (for McTominaty 87′) – n/a – Came on late.

    Donny van de Beek (for Fernandes 87′) – 6 – Came on late but played a smart, early pass that panicked the Atalanta defence and led to United’s dramatic late equaliser.
