How have Young Boys fared since beating United in September?

Ralf Rangnick will have the luxury of ringing the changes in Manchester United’s final Champions League group game against Young Boys.

After Michael Carrick picked up a 2-0 win at Villarreal, thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, the Reds have assured qualification for the last-16, as Group F winners.

United have picked up 10 points from their last four Champions League games, following the opening matchday loss in Switzerland.

Despite taking an early lead thanks to that man Ronaldo, the game turned on its head following Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card.

It looked like United were heading home with a point to their name, but a lapse in concentration from substitute Jesse Lingard in the 95th minute, allowed Jordan Pefok to steal the three points for the hosts.

Despite shocking the Red Devils at home, the reigning Swiss champions have only picked up one further point in the group, which was a 3-3 home draw against Atalanta, last time out.

However, David Wagner’s side can still qualify for the Europa League, if Villarreal beat the Italians, and the former Huddersfield Town manager’s team pull off another upset and come away from the Theatre of Dreams with all three points.

But Young Boys are going to have to overcome a poor run of form, which has seen them pick up one win from their last eight games and that has yielded five losses.

They are currently in fourth place in the Swiss Super League, nine points off the leaders FC Zurich, with one game in hand.

In their last eight matches, Young Boys were also knocked out of the Swiss Cup, in the last-16, after losing 2-1 to FC Lugano.

Despite avenging the cup loss to Lugano with a 3-1 league win, Wagner’s side come in to tomorrow’s clash off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Servette on Saturday.
