Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Stadion Wankdorf in Bern will host Tuesday’s Champions League clash between Young Boys and Manchester United. The Red Devils have big ambitions for the 2021/22 CL campaign, and, no doubt, summer signing Cristiano Ronaldo will help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team improve their game. CR7 impressed on his second Man Utd debut as he scored two goals in a 4-1 win over Newcastle United. Even though Marcus Rashford remains in the recovery room, away win should be considered. Scott McTominay could play some part in Tuesday’s clash after return to training at the weekend.
Young Boys, on the other hand, booked their place in the Champions League group stages by beating Ferencvaros in the two-legged tie. The Swiss champions, though, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. All Lefort, Lustenberger, Monteiro, Nsame, and Petignat are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Fabian Lustenberger):
Fabian Lustenberger is a Swiss player who was born on 2 May, 1988 in Nebikon. The defensive midfielder started his senior career at FC Luzern and he played 34 league matches for the club between 2005 and 2007. Lustenberger joined Hertha Berlin in August, 2007 and it has to be noted that he made 24 league appearances for the capital club in the 2007/2008 Bundesliga campaign.
Despite the fact that Hertha dropped to 2. Bundesliga at the end of the 2009/2010 season, the Swiss footballer decided not to leave the club in the summer transfer window. In 2013 Hertha returned to the German top flight and Lustenberger has been the team’s captain ever since.
The 180-cm-tall footballer has 25 caps for Switzerland U21 team and he made his debut for the Switzerland national team on 15 November, 2013 in a friendly against Korea Republic. His brother is a football player as well and he currently plays for the FC Luzern reserve team. Fabian Lustenberger’s contract with Hertha expires on 30 June, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
