Manchester United vs Young Boys

Manchester United take on the Swiss Super League leaders BSC Young Boys at Old Trafford on Tuesday night as they look to secure passage through Group H and into the Round of 16.

United could book their spot in the knockout stages should they beat Young Boys and Valencia fail to beat group leaders Juventus. Young Boys are already eliminated and their chances of reaching the Europa League are extremely slim.

Manchester United come into this one needing a positive result following more disappointment in the Premier League last time out. Mourinho’s men put on another tedious display to draw 0-0 with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, leaving them seventh in the table and already seven points off the top four. In the Champions League, things are looking better with the huge win over Juventus putting the Red Devils in a great position. A win here would leave Valencia needing to beat Juventus to take it to the last game. Three points and a Juventus draw or win elsewhere would book United’s place in the knockout stages with a game to spare.

United found it rather easy when these two teams met out in Switzerland and they are likely to come through as comfortable winners here. They are 15/2 with Bet Victor to win by the same scoreline here. Mourinho’s men are at a very slim 2/7 to win with Sky Bet, so it may be worth looking at a -2 handicap to boost the odds, and you can get 11/5 on that market with Betfair.

Anthony Martial leads the United scoring charts this season with six goals to his name. The Frenchman is 9/2 with Bet365 to open the scoring here. Romelu Lukaku has disappointed this season, only managing four goals, but he’s still at slim odds to get a goal at 1s with most bookmakers, including Ladbrokes. Marcus Rashford is at 13/10 to score at any time with Bet365.

Young Boys head to Old Trafford with their dreams of a Champions League upset dashed. The Swiss club are already eliminated having only picked up one point, though that’s no disgrace given the size of the club and the very difficult group in which they find themselves. They can, at least, take comfort from their domestic affairs. Young Boys are top off the Swiss Super League, already with a 16-point gap over nearest challenger Basel. They head into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Lugano thanks to an 83rd-minute winner from Miralem Sulejmani.

Heading to Old Trafford and having lost 3-0 to Manchester United in the home game, Young Boys will know they are unlikely to get anything from this game. However, if they can get a goal, they will be able to take some positives back to Switzerland. They are 10/11 to score with Marathon. Having said that, United are extremely low on confidence and it wouldn’t be the most surprising result of the season if the Swiss club took a point. They are a long 21/4 with Bet365 to get a draw and they are in miracle territory to get a win at 12/1 with William Hill.

Guillaume Hoarau has been Young Boys’ star man this season, scoring 10 in the league, and he’s one of only two players to have scored in the Champions League. Hoarau is 15/4 to score at any time with Betway. If anyone scores for Young Boys, it may well be him. Roger Assale is the only other player to score in Europe, and he’s also scored six in the league. He’s at 5/1 with Bet365 to score. Jean-Pierre Nsame is Young Boys’ second top scorer in the league with seven goals and he is 19/4 to score his first Champions League goal in this one with Betway.
