Here are the player ratings for the UEFA Champions League fixture between Atalanta and Manchester United

Group F table toppers, Manchester United went up against Atlanta who they’d a thrilling encounter with in their previous outing. However, it was a fun second meeting straightaway but the Reds were hurted by the start.

Josip Iličić, Atalanta’s most promising player turned wild and used his massive skills to score the opening goal of the match for Atalanta in the 12th minute and gave them the lead. However, Cristiano couldn’t be kept quiet due and he made a fierce goal to make it even for Manchester United.

A little while later, Zapata’s strong run across the Man United box game him a clear chance at goal and with barely a single person in the box, he ran himself and took a good look over the right of de Gea and scored a brilliant goal.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo must’ve been cooking some other plans as he yet again comes to rescue his side. He scored a scorching low volley past the keeper to make it 2-2 and earn them their required points. Here are the player ratings for the match :

Davide Zappacosta (6.1/10) : A pretty decent game overall for Davide Zappacosta. He did contribute here and there but didn’t impact his side in anyway.

Teun Koopmeiners (7.4/10) : Teun seemed to be in really good shape as he made some really good tackle moves while also passing around the long balls so smoothly and efficient.

Remo Freuler (6.3/10) : The captain was good in sending in long balls and making interceptions but failed miserably to win any ground or Aerial duels and lost possession way too many times.

Joakim Mæhle (6.6/10) : Joakim did a really good job at sending across some neat long balls. However, he kept losing the ball and the possession on as many as 18 occasions. He tried his glory with ground duels but failed miserably.
