Young Boys vs Man Utd: Red Devils backed for Berne success

Young Boys vs Man Utd: Red Devils backed for Berne success

Kick-off: 1745, 14/09/2021

Stadium: Wankdorf Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Manchester United paid the price for two away defeats when failing to qualify from last season’s Champions League pool so will be fully focused for this trip.

The good news is that the Red Devils enjoyed a 3-0 win over Young Boys in Berne three years ago, when Paul Pogba hit a first-half double.

We like 11/10 for the visitors to lead at the interval and full-time again for our first Young Boys vs Man Utd prediction.

A Look At Young Boys’ Betting Odds

Young Boys lost out to Midtjylland in a qualifier last term but are back at Europe’s top table after coming through three hard-fought rounds this season.

Home wins were the key to their progress, with Slovan Bratislava and Ferencvaros both beaten 3-2 here either side of a 3-1 victory over CFR Cluj.

USA forward Jordan Siebatcheu netted in two of those triumphs and has also started well in the Swiss League, so he looks a threat up front.

Fellow loan star Vincent Sierro has also been contributing goals from midfield and it would not be a surprise to see the hosts get on the scoresheet.

However, they lack experience in some key areas, so 9/5 for an away win and both teams to score stands out from the Young Boys vs Man Utd odds.

A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds

United kicked off last year’s group-stage campaign with an excellent 2-1 win over PSG in France but then somehow failed to qualify from that.

Losing 3-2 away to RB Leipzig was excusable but it was harder to forgive a sloppy 2-1 defeat to Basaksehir in Istanbul.

The Red Devils went on to reach the Europa League final in good style, though, knocking out decent sides like Real Sociedad, AC Milan and Roma before suffering penalty shootout heartbreak.

Addressing the need for more established big-game players, United snapped up Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane and Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

However, the major coup came when persuading Cristiano Ronaldo to return to the club where he first enjoyed Champions League glory.

Ronaldo has scored an incredible 135 goals in Europe’s elite club competition, with Lionel Messi next best on 120 and then Robert Lewandowski at 73.

With Pogba and Bruno Fernandes forming a fine midfield partnership, everything is in place for the Red Devils to do better this term.

Let’s complete our Young Boys vs Man Utd betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 3-1 away victory.
