(Video) Eric Bailly denies certain Atalanta goal with incredible last ditch block

Manchester United are trailing one nill against Atalanta in Tuesday night’s Champions League group stage fixture.

The Red Devils, who fielded a strong starting 11, would have been hoping to get off to a quick start as they looked to pick up where they left off following their 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

However, after falling behind thanks to Josip Ilicic opener after just 12-minutes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been forced to watch on as his side try and claw their way back into the match.

Things could have been so much worse for the Red Devils had it not have been for centre-back and fan-favourite Eric Bailly.

Just shy of the 40th-minute, striker Duvan Zapata looked certain to double the Italian’s lead before United’s number three made a diving block.
