Manchester United vs Young Boys Preview

Manchester United vs Young Boys

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 27th November 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Manchester United will be looking to get over their disappointing goalless home draw against Crystal Palace by taking all three points in this game.

A victory for Jose Mourinho’s men and another win for Juventus over Valencia in Turin would send the Red Devils through to the next round with a game to spare.

Their win over the Old Ladies in their last European game has placed them in a position to not only qualify, but they can top the group depending on how Juve performs in their next two fixtures.

Young Boys are the minnows of this group as they come into this fixture with a single point collected from all of their group games so far, but they should draw inspiration from Palace and try to get a result from this game.

Two wins for Juve and United would now see the two of them battling for who finishes top of the group.

The Red Devils have surprisingly not scored a goal at Old Trafford in the Champions League this season and after their latest stalemate against Palace, Young Boys should setup to frustrate them once again.

Manchester United have played against Swiss opponents at home 3 times in European competitions and they have won once and drawn twice.

Bookmakers have priced Manchester United up as very short favourites to get all three points here while goal markets expect 3 or more goals despite United’s poor record in this competition.
