Young Boys vs Manchester United Match Preview – Prediction, Team News, Lineups

Published

on

Manchester United will be looking to make the perfect start to their 2021-22 Champions League group-stage campaign when they take on Young Boys in Switzerland on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils will enter the match off the back of a 4-1 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday, while Young Boys thumped Zurich 4-0 in the Swiss Super League in their last match

Young Boys won the Swiss Super League for the 15th time last season, which saw them automatically qualify for the Champions League second qualifying round, meaning that they have had to play a lot of football already in this season’s competition to advance to this stage.

Indeed, the Swiss outfit have already taken part in six Champions League matches this term, overcoming Slovan Bratislava, CFR Cluj and Ferencvaros to make the group stage for just the second time, with their previous participation coming in the 2018-19 competition, when they also took on Man United, losing both matches against the 20-time English champions by an aggregate score of 4-0.

There is no getting away from the fact that Young Boys are incredibly inexperienced at this level, while they have won only one of their previous eight fixtures against English opposition, but a strong start to the 2021-22 campaign should mean that confidence is high at Stadion Wankdorf.

Indeed, David Wagner’s side have picked up eight points from their opening five league matches of the season to sit third in the table, while they recorded a thumping 4-0 win over leaders Zurich on Saturday, with Michel Aebischer netting a brace for the home side from the middle of the park.

Young Boys will certainly believe that they can cause each of the three other teams in Group F – Man United, Atalanta BC and Villarreal – problems, but their home form will surely be vital when it comes to challenging for a top-two or indeed top-three finish in the section.

Man United, meanwhile, will enter Tuesday’s contest off the back of a 4-1 win over Newcastle in the Premier League, with Cristiano Ronaldo netting twice on his second debut for the club, while Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard were also on the scoresheet during a strong performance at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have also made a strong start to the season, picking up 10 points from their four league fixtures to sit top of the table, and they will be determined to put three Champions League points on the board ahead of their next domestic fixture away to West Ham United next weekend.

A busy period will see the Red Devils also face West Ham in the EFL Cup, before ending September with a league game against Aston Villa and home fixture against Villarreal in the Champions League.

Man United finished third in their section in 2020-21, which saw them drop into the Europa League, and they beat Real Sociedad, AC Milan, Granada and Roma to reach the final of the competition but ultimately lost to Villarreal on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Second in last season’s Premier League, the English giants are three-time winners of the European Cup, while they have finished atop their Champions League section on 15 occasions and will fancy their chances of claiming first position in Group F despite the quality of the teams around them

An interesting match will be presented in the first week of the 2021-22 Champions League Group F which brings together Young Boys vs Manchester United. The Red Devils are in a high mentality after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

On paper, Young Boys are the weakest team in Group F, considering they are representative of pot 4. They have also had a bad start in the Swiss Super League where they are currently in 4th position.

Meanwhile for United, Ronaldo’s arrival had a big impact with the player scoring a brace in the match against Newcastle last weekend.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will most likely not overhaul his squad in this match with Ronaldo as the spearhead.
