After that, Angel Gomes also scored. The Dutch defender Sven Botman played the entire game at Lille. Renato Steffen saved the honor for Wolfsburg shortly before time.

Van de Beek in the wrong

BSC Young Boys is played out in Europe. The Swiss champions did not get any further than a draw in the last group match of the Champions League against Manchester United on Wednesday: 1-1. Young Boys therefore finished fourth and last in group F, where Manchester United were already certain of group victory.

Atalanta and Villarreal will determine tomorrow who finishes second and Manchester United follows towards the eighth finals. The game between those two clubs was canceled on Wednesday because the field in Bergamo was not playable due to snowfall. A draw is enough for Villarreal, Atalanta must win.

Mason Greenwood gave Manchester United the lead in the 9th minute. After a cross from Luke Shaw, he cleverly shot the ball out of the air in one shot, into the bottom left corner behind goalkeeper Guillaume Faivre. Donny van de Beek was at the basis of the equalizer. After the Dutch midfielder lost the ball, Fabian Rieder curled the ball into the goal shortly before half time: 1-1.

Van de Beek, like a number of other reserves, had a starting spot because Manchester United had already qualified.

Watch here the goal preceded by a mistake by Van de Beek:
