Can Manchester United shrug off poor Premier League form to clinch a spot in the knockout stages?
Can Manchester United shrug off poor Premier League form to clinch a spot in the knockout stages?

The English giants are set to host Swiss team BSC Young Boys in a very crucial Champions League match at Old Trafford, with a victory almost guaranteeing the 3-time Champions League winners a way into the knockout stages.

Manchester United come on the back of a poor match against Crystal Palace in the weekend, and a victory for the Red Devils might slightly improve the dull atmosphere at The Theatre of Dreams. Young Boys on the other hand, are runaway leaders in the Swiss League, with just a draw and a loss to their name in 15 matches.

A victory for the English giants and a loss for Valencia in their match against Juventus will help the Red Devils qualify for the knockout stages, while points dropped against Young Boys and victory for Valencia will make the last match between Valencia and Manchester United a crucial fixture.
