Young Boys vs Manchester United: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Young Boys have sealed a place in the 2021-2022 UCL group stage all the way from the Qualifying rounds. By winning the Swiss league title, they punched a ticket to the second round of qualification, where they beat Slovan Bratislava. In the following round, Young Boys knocked Cluj out.
Manchester United, meanwhile, secured a spot for this stage by finishing second in the 2020/21 Premier League. It's been a long time since the Red Devils tasted continental glory and Solskjaer wants to lead his side to a deep run after an impressive job during the transfer window.
This will be the third time these two sides face each other. There has not been a dominant side so far, with one victory apiece. Last time they met, Manchester United claimed a hard-fought, 1-0 win at Old Trafford.
