Young Boys vs Manchester United predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Champions League fixture tonight

The Champions League group stage begins this week and Manchester United’s first task is a trip to Switzerland to face BSC Young Boys.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have made a great start to the Premier League season, unbeaten and top on goals scored after four matches, the latest of which was a thrashing of Newcastle United.

That game saw the returning Cristiano Ronaldo net twice on his first game back at Old Trafford – and few would bet against the all-time top scorer in the Champions League adding more to his tally in midweek.

Young Boys have made a reasonable start to their own domestic season, sitting in fourth after two wins and two draws from their opening five including a 4-0 thrashing of leaders Zurich at the weekend.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 5:45pm BST on Tuesday 14 September at the Wankdorf Stadion in Bern.

Where can I watch it?

All Champions League and Europa League matches this season will once more be broadcast on BT Sport. The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 and subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What is the team news?

Young Boys are missing Joel Monteiro, Nico Maeier, Esteban Petignat, Jean-Pierre Nsame and Fabian Lustenberger for the match.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains without Marcus Rashford, but Scott McTominay could make a return to the squad. Alex Telles and Dean Henderson are ready to return to the squad but are not likely to feature yet.
