Before kickoff in Switzerland, group leader Manchester United ensured it would advance by winning 2-0 at Villarreal.
Late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho secured United’s place in the knockout stages in caretaker coach Michael Carrick’s first game in charge. Atalanta’s later failure to win ensured United will win the group and be seeded in the round of 16 draw on Dec. 13.
Young Boys was eliminated from Champions League contention by Atalanta’s late leveler, but can still finish third which earns a place in the Europa League knockout playoffs in February. Young Boys next plays at Man United.
Atalanta twice led with goals early in each half from two South Americans, Colombia forward Duván Zapata and Argentine defender José Luis Palomino.
Young Boys leveled in the 39th when United States forward Jordan Pefok guided a header in off the underside of the crossbar at a corner.
