Manchester United played their first game under new coach Ralf Rangnick last weekend. The game against Crystal Palace was not easy for the Red Devils. In the match’s closing stages, United’s only goal was scored by United midfielder Fred. It is United’s second successive victory in the EPL. As for their Champions League performances, the Red Devils scored two unanswered goals against Villarreal in the fifth leg. United are top of Group F with ten points. The club has already guaranteed a place in the playoffs.
Young Boys’ last opponent in the Champions League group stage was Atalanta. The game in Switzerland was very productive, with the teams jointly scoring six goals and failing to come away with a 3-3 win. With four points, Young Boys are sitting in last place in Group F. The team still retains a certain chance of continuing to fight in European competitions - if not in the Champions League playoffs, then already in this stage of the Europa League. The David Wagner-led side suffered their second successive defeat in the Swiss league last week. They lost on home soil to Servette 1-2.
Expert Betting Tips
Interesting facts about Manchester United are worth highlighting. To begin with, in the current Champions League group stage, the Mancunians have been very strong in the closing stages of matches. After 70 minutes, the Red Devils have scored an average of 1.5 goals. We can expect the series of late goals to last at Old Trafford. However, new coach Ralf Rangnick’s style of play implies active action early in the encounter. In this case, I will opt for corner kicks before the break as the main bet. Young Boys will not sit back in defence. The team retains a certain chance to stay in the European competitions.
In addition, we should note Rangnick’s words in the pre-match interview. The German specialist is likely to allow several bench players to prove themselves. For example, the match against Young Boys will be a great opportunity for Henderson, van de Beek, and Elanga. Either way, we are in for quite an active and vibrant game at Old Trafford. I suggest selecting the following betting options:
- Total Over 4.5. 1 Half Corners for 1.88;
- A goal from 76 min or later for 1.85;
- A goal from 76 min or later for 1.83.
