Young Boys v Man United: Team news

Young Boys will be without Fabrian Lustenberger and Joel Monteiro, while Jordan Lefort and Esteban Petignat are also doubtful.

However the biggest blow will be the absence of Jean-Pierre Nsame who has been the club’s star striker in recent years.

As for United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a big decision to make regarding the involvement of Ronaldo.

The Portuguese star started against Newcastle at the weekend but a decision will need to be made on whether he’ll be risked in the Champions League.

Elsewhere, Edinson Cavani and Fred will be pushing for a return after missing the clash with the Magpies.

Alex Telles, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones remain long-term absentees, while Scott McTominay may come back into the reckoning for this one.
