Manchester United will be looking to end a successful 2021-22 Champions League group-stage campaign on a positive note when they welcome Young Boys to Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
MANCHESTER UNITED RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Ralf Rangnick made the perfect start to his reign as Man United interim manager on Sunday, with Fred’s second-half effort handing the Red Devils a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League with the result moving the team into sixth position in the table, now just three points behind the top four. Man United have not shown their best form in this year’s group stage and actually lost their opener away to Young Boys but they have picked up 10 points from their last four matches, with the 2-0 victory over Villarreal in their last champions league outing secured a spot in the round of 16. Ralf Ragnick will however rally his team for a strong finish in the group stage. Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba are ruled out with injuries, while Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are all doubts. It would be interesting to see if Diogo Dalot keeps his place after stellar performances against Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
YOUNG BOYS RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Young Boys are currently fourth in Group F of the Champions league, with just four points from their five matches courtesy of one win, one draw and three defeats. The Swiss outfit are only two points behind third-placed Atalanta with a Europa League spot still possible, although they would need to win at Old Trafford and hope that Atalanta lose to second-placed Villarreal. David Wagner will need to build confidence in the team having lost two of their last three league games, including a 2-1 defeat to Servette on Saturday, which has left them down in fourth position in their domestic league. David von Ballmoos, Cedric Zesiger, Christian Fassnacht, Jean-Pierre Nsame, Ulisses Garcia and Felix Mambimbi will all miss out through injury.
PREDICTION: MAN UNITED WIN 2-0/2-1/3-0/3-1
