We may say The traffic light changed in favour of us, which means it changed from red to green for us.

How can I use a similar structure to say it changed from green to red?


I think for the exact phrase you have given: "changed in favour of us", I would say "has gone against us", but that sounds too grand for traffic lights.

For traffic lights, I would just say "gone green" and "gone red".
