Insight and Analysis: Manchester United vs Young Boys UCL 2021 Match Prediction.
Manchester United vs Young Boys UCL 2021 Match Prediction Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.
Ralf Rangnick will likely rotate his Manchester United squad for this UEFA Champions League (UCL) match, despite the fact that his side has already qualified for the Round of 16 as Group F victors.
United became undefeated in Europe since losing to Young Boys on matchday one (W3, D1), and they did do the hard way, surrendering first in three of the following games.
United will be trying to avoid needing another comeback after their 1-0 Premier League triumph over Crystal Palace on Sunday.
However, they haven’t won a UCL game at this historic stadium since October 2020, and their last five home UCL games (W4, L1) have averaged 4.4 goals per game, so an intriguing match is possible.
Young Boys have failed to build on their shock 2-1 H2H win (D1, L3), and their best chance of qualifying for the Europa League is to win here and hope Villarreal beat Atalanta.
They can throw caution to the wind then, but they’re up against it with just one win in their past eight competitive matches (W1, D2, L5).
They’ve never won a UCL group game away from home (L5) and have failed to score in both losses this season.
Young Boys are winless in four travels to England (D1, L3), three of which saw them trail at halftime.
Player to Watch
Mason Greenwood has scored three of his four goals this season after the 50th minute, while Wilfried Kanga has scored three times in his past two games for Young Boys, twice after the 80th minute.
In their last four UCL games, United has averaged 1.5 goals per game after the 70th minute.

With first place in Group F already secured, Ralf Rangnick is set to make major changes for his second game in command.
Harry Maguire has been given the night off after Nemanja Matic was named captain for Tuesday’s encounter.
Dean Henderson and Donny van de Beek will start in midweek, according to Rangnick.
Amad Diallo, Anthony Elanga, and Teden Mengi, all United youth, will aim to play some part.
Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard have both returned to training and might make their first-team debuts this weekend.
With a knee injury, Anthony Martial will miss United’s next two games, while Raphael Varane and Edinson Cavani are expected to return to full training next week.
Under Rangnick, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is under pressure to be the first-choice right-back, and he’ll be hoping to impress on Wednesday night.
Young Boys are still dealing with a slew of injury issues, with as many as nine players skipping the trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Fabian Lustenberger has returned from a long layoff in recent weeks, but his health must be checked before he can start here.
Christopher Martins Pereira was sent off over the weekend, but his suspension does not apply to Young Boys in Europe.

Man United have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games (Champions League).
In each of their last three games, Young Boys have conceded at least two goals (Champions League).
Manchester United are already in first place in Group F, but interim manager Ralf Rangnick will be looking to build on a promising start.
With a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, United kept their first clean sheet at Old Trafford since April.
Young Boys’ hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage were dashed last time out as they conceded in the 88th minute to Atalanta.
They are currently fourth in Group F, but with a win away at United, they will jump Atalanta into third if the Italian team loses to Villarreal.
Young Boys should be encouraged by the fact that they have already defeated United once in this group stage campaign, but they should expect to face a different side now that Ralf Rangnick has taken over as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement.
Rangnick wants United to keep consecutive clean sheets for the first time since October 2020 at Old Trafford.
