class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Ronaldo now leading the line in a star-studded attack, Al Hain-Cole expects the Red Devils to ease to a high-scoring win over Wagner's men
Manchester United will be aiming to get their Champions League campaign off to a winning start when they travel to the Wankdorf Stadium to take on Young Boys on Tuesday.
The Red Devils have enjoyed a strong start to the Premier League following an exciting summer transfer window, collecting 10 points from a possible 12.
Young Boys vs Manchester United latest odds
Having won both previous meetings with this opposition back in the 2018-19 group stage, Man Utd are clear 4/11 (1.36) favourites with bet365 to maintain the feelgood factor by coming out on top in Bern.
Appointed by Young Boys to replace the Bayer Leverkusen-bound Gerardo Seoane in the summer, David Wagner can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) to mastermind a shock victory over a team he beat 2-1 while manager of newly-promoted Huddersfield Town four years ago.
None of the visitors’ last 14 matches in this competition have finished in a draw, but you can get odds of 17/4 (5.25) on them being forced to settle for a single point here.

Young Boys vs Manchester United team news

Young Boys vs Manchester United preview
Having added Cristiano Ronaldo to a team that already includes the in-form Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, last season’s Europa League runners-up are surely now among the favourites for Champions League glory.
It certainly spells trouble for a Swiss side that failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five qualification matches against Slovan Bratislava, CFR Cluj and Ferencvaros, conceding twice in three of those games.
Nevertheless, Young Boys will at least back themselves to cause problems of their own after scoring 18 goals in their six most recent fixtures, albeit keeping just one clean sheet over that run.
Young Boys vs Manchester United predictions
All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem generous on United coming out on top in their eighth consecutive Champions League game to produce over 2.5 goals, as well as a seventh game in a row for their opponents.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
