Young Boys are going to face a very hard challenge in the opening round of the Champions League as they are going to take on Manchester United.
The hosts opened the national championship with a streak of six victories and they are already six points ahead of their nearest rivals.
French veteran striker Guillaume Hoarau is in an excellent form as he managed to find the back of the oppositions’ net four times. Young Boys have been very efficient as they scored 19 goals so far in the Super League, while their defence has been pretty tight.
The Young Boys managed to secure their place in the group stage after eliminating Dinamo Zagreb in the qualifiers playoffs after a 2-1 away victory.
Manchester United are having early troubles once again as they have already suffered two defeats in the first five rounds of the Premier League.
However, they managed to raise their form in the last two rounds after booking two victories away to Burnley and Watford.
Jose Mourinho’s side hasn’t been too efficient, while their defence allowed a lot of goals in compare to their ambitions.
The visitors need to start producing more goals if they want to have a significant role in both domestic and continental competitions.
Young Boys vs Manchester United Head-to-head
Interestingly, these two sides should have met each other back in 1958 in the preliminary round of the Champions Cup, however Manchester United withdrew from the competition.
The visitors have faces a Swiss side in three occasions, but they managed to book only two victories in six matches.
Young Boys vs Manchester United: Prediction
Although the visitors are strong favorites in this one, Young Boys are capable of providing severe troubles to the English side. However, we believe Manchester United should be capable of booking a win in this one.
Young Boys have been very efficient so far in the season, but in this one we are expecting a much more cautious approach from the hosts. We are expecting a tight clash in which the crowd shouldn’t be able to see more than two goals.
