Young Boys may play right into Manchester United’s hands in tonight’s Champions League tie.

United head to Switzerland full of confidence after a 4-1 win over Newcastle and ready to score more goals.

Young Boys don’t intend to sit back and try to frustrate United. Defender Jordan Lefort has promised they will play an attacking style.

Lefort told GFFN: “We’ll be pushed by the supporters’ enthusiasm. The goal is to play as we do domestically – even if we’re facing some great teams and great players, we’ll try to impose our own style at home.

“We’re not going to sit back, we’re really going to try to attack. You saw in the two legs against Ferencváros that we tried to play well, and it was really pleasing to watch. You can expect Young Boys to bring their style.”

Good for United

We should see an entertaining game tonight. It certainly won’t end 0-0.

Usually when teams set out to attack Manchester United it ends very badly. Just ask Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa’s Leeds were hit for six goals and five goals by United, while RB Leipzig tried to attack United at Old Trafford last season and were beaten 5-0.

United have the players to pick teams apart on the counter attack, and that was before Cristiano Ronaldo was added to the team.

A defensive approach doesn’t necessarily work either, as Steve Bruce’s Newcastle saw at the weekend as they were beaten 4-1.

United beat Young Boys 3-0 away from home in 2018 when they last tried a similar tactic.

The comments from Lefort have been welcomely received by United supporters, who are confidently expecting a big scoreline.
