Team news and predicted line-ups ahead of Man Utd vs Young Boys

Manchester United welcome Young Boys to Old Trafford for their final Champions League group stage fixture tonight.

Michael Carrick had already guaranteed United’s safe passage into the knockout rounds, with a vital victory over Villarreal during his short stint as caretaker manager.

Ralf Rangnick is likely to use the match as a chance to rotate his squad and to continue to establish his style of play, having earned a hard-fought 1-0 win against Crystal Palace in the first game of his tenure.

Young Boys will not easily roll over, though, and inflicted a shock 2-1 defeat on United in the reverse fixture in September. The Swiss champions have plenty to play for, too, as they could still qualify for a Europa League place if they pull off another upset.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the match:

When is it and what time does it start?

The match will get underway at 8pm on Tuesday 8 December at Old Trafford.

How can I watch it online and on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2 and the BT Sport App, with coverage beginning at 7pm.

What is the team news?

Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba remained ruled out for United, with Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial all doubts. The likes of Donny van de Beek and Mason Greenwood should be given the chance to impress the new coach.

Predicted line-ups

Manchester United: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Mata, Sancho; Martial

Young Boys: Faivre; Hefti, Burgy, Lauper, Lefort; Aebischer, Martins, Rieder; Elia, Siebatcheu, Ngamaleu


Manchester United – 4/11

Draw – 4/1

Young Boys – 7/1


Despite still transitioning to Rangnick’s playing style, United should have far too much quality for Young Boys, with several squad players keen to take the chance to leave an impression on the new head coach. Manchester United 3-0 Young Boys.
