In a friendly match in Vegas, Borussia Dortmund defeated sloppy Manchester United 3-2

<p>Borussia Dortmund punished Manchester United’s defensive mistakes on Sunday, as the English Premier League powerhouses lost 3-2 to the Bundesliga team in Las Vegas to end their North American trip.</p>
<p>At the Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, an intriguing match was decided by a second-half goal from Dortmund replacement Youssoufa Moukoko.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-103923″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-according-to-government-data-the-cbi-has-arrested-over-2000-public-employees-in-the-last-three-years-up-44-over-the-previous-year-download-2023-07-31t121241.810.jpg” alt=”” width=”1064″ height=”708″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-according-to-government-data-the-cbi-has-arrested-over-2000-public-employees-in-the-last-three-years-up-44-over-the-previous-year-download-2023-07-31t121241.810.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-according-to-government-data-the-cbi-has-arrested-over-2000-public-employees-in-the-last-three-years-up-44-over-the-previous-year-download-2023-07-31t121241.810-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1064px) 100vw, 1064px” /></p>
<p>The likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and newly acquired Mason Mount were all bench players for United boss Erik ten Hag’s starting lineup, which was essentially a reserve squad.</p>
<p>But in the first half, United’s impromptu starting lineup was more than a match for Dortmund, dominating for lengthy stretches until Diogo Dalot gave the Red Devils the lead with a long-range shot on minute 24.</p>
<p>However, Dortmund’s two goals in a minute from Dutch attacker Donyell Malen in the last seconds of the first half completely changed the course of the match.</p>
<p>The first occurred when Karim Adeyemi’s right-side surge went unchecked by United’s defenders.</p>
<p>A group of United defenders were paying attention, but Adeyemi was able to square for Malen, who hooked in from close range.</p>
<p>A minute later, Malen scored again, capitalizing on a United blunder in which Victor Lindelof lost control of the ball while attempting to pass out from the back of the area.</p>
<p>In the first few seconds of the second half, when another defensive blunder—this one by Harry Maguire—allowed Sebastien Haller a chance on goal, United was fortunate to avoid falling down 3-1.</p>
<p>Andre Onana, the goalie for United, made a stop before rejoicingly seeing Adeyemi miss the follow-up with the goal open.</p>
<p>In the 52nd minute, Brazilian attacker Antony netted a low shot from inside the box to pull United level again after a poor clearing by Dortmund veteran Mats Hummels.</p>
<p>With 30 minutes left, Ten Hag signaled a substitution, and Rashford immediately increased the offensive threat.</p>
<p>However, the game-winning goal was scored by Dortmund when veteran Marco Reus found a nice opportunity and sent up Moukoko.</p>
