Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says faith is the key to their comeback 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Come in the Group F game at Old Trafford, the “Red Devils” opened the home game with a good Italian team leading 2-0 in the first half, but in the second half they came to win 3-2.
Marcus Rashford’s shot blew up before Harry Maguire equalized, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in the 81st minute, giving them six points from three or more games. Brace as the leader of the group
After the game, Solskjaer said: “Tonight it was an offensive game from start to finish. I think this is a confrontation of two teams with the idea of attacking the game.
Solskjaer’s team were 2-0 down against their depleted visitors, with Mario Pasalic opening the scoring and Merih Derimal left free to head home a corner.
And yet, when the final whistle blew, United and their manager were back on top thanks to Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and a winner from Cristiano Ronaldo.
At this point, the result will feel like it means more than the performance, but it leaves plenty of questions still unanswered.
But that’s our DNA. We have players that run the way and players who have the quality to pass the last ball.”
“Then we were 2-0 down from just two chances. It was a difficult subject and I could hardly understand how it happened. Dum…Dum! We are down 2-0 but we believe [to come back] that is the key,” he said.
