Young Boys – Wagner to make the difference in Berne?

Swiss champions for each of the last four seasons, can Young Boys finally make a positive impression in this their second ever Champions League group stage campaign? Back in 2018, the club from Berne would also begin proceedings on home soil against Manchester United. A resounding 3-0 defeat – one of six from eight meetings versus English sides (W1 D1) – sent them on their way to a bottom place finish.

Under a manager who knows all about the English game, Young Boys will be bullish about their chances on this occasion. Former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner oversaw only the club’s second successful qualifying campaign for this competition, winning all three home matches whilst scoring three each time. Returning from the recent break in fine fettle with a 4-0 win over FC Zurich on Saturday.

That made it five wins and 18 scored across a six-game unbeaten stretch. The defence of their Swiss Super League title hasn’t been all smooth sailing, though, sitting five points off the team they thrashed last time out having played a game less (W2 D2 L1). And on the topic of defence, clean sheets have been few and far between with just three coming from twelve competitive outings in a season that begun in July.


Cristiano Ronaldo First Goalscorer



Manchester United – CR7 can elevate Red Devils in Europe?

Ronaldo fever swept through Old Trafford over the weekend, inspiring the 4-1 victory over Newcastle United that lifted them atop the Premier League table. The Portuguese marked his first start for the club, in his second spell since departing for Spain more than twelve years earlier, with a brace. Clearly determined to make up for lost time, the 36-year-old could prove a very popular goalscorer selection in Berne.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping for a much bigger impact from his former team-mate and last-minute summer signing, though. United didn’t make it beyond the group stage in last season’s tournament, trailing PSG And RB Leipzig in third. This preceded their run to the final of the Europa League, ultimately culminating in bitter disappointment as they lost on penalties to Matchday 2 opponents Villarreal.

United have only won their Champions League group once since 2013/14. They’ll be out to rectify that negative trend this season, beginning with a trip to Switzerland where their record reads W2 L2, with both losses against FC Basel. Confidence in camp should be high, however, following a supremely strong start to the new Premier League season which has seen them collect ten points out of twelve.
