Young Boys vs Manchester United: how and where to watch - times, TV, online

Buoyed with their impressive home win over Newcastle United and flying high in the Premier League, a confident Manchester United travel to Switzerland with Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side looking to make a strong start to the Champions League group F qualifying process as they face Swiss champions Young Boys in Bern.

Despite a slow start to defending their Swiss Super League title with the side from the Wankdorf stadium lying in fourth position in the table, a 4-0 win over table topping FC Zurich will provide David Wagner's men with the perfect tonic as they prepare for the visit of Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo.

CR7 headlines

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he will carefully manage Cristiano Ronaldo's playing time but has to balance that with getting the 36-year-old Portugal forward settled into the side.

Ronaldo, who rejoined United during the summer months, marked his comeback at Old Trafford with two goals in Saturday's 4-1 Premier League win over Newcastle United.

United return to action in Tuesday's opening Champions League group stage match against Swiss club Young Boys and Solskjaer said he would not rule out resting Ronaldo.

"It's not impossible to leave him out," Solskjaer said. "He is 36. Mason (Greenwood) is 19 so it's the same, I have to manage his minutes and I have to manage a 36-year-old's minutes as well.

"The other thing with Cristiano is that he looks after himself so much so I know he will recover quickly and he has had a pre-season.

"Of course, it's important that we get everyone up and running and to get him up and running and to give him 90 minutes."

United are joint top of the Premier League on 10 points after four matches. They travel to West Ham United on Sunday for their next league match.

1,800 United fans set to be present

United supporters will be able attend their Champions League opener against Young Boys after the Swiss team agreed to a late change of covid-19 regulations for Tuesday's game, the Times reported.

Young Boys had declined to allocate away tickets based on local laws that do not recognise Britain's National Health Service (NHS) pass, saying supporters would only be permitted entry with a Swiss or European Union vaccination certificate.

The NHS pass, a requirement for Premier League ticket holders, allows fans to show that they are either fully vaccinated or have returned a negative covid-19 PCR or lateral flow test result within 48 hours of kickoff.

However, United have confirmed 1,800 tickets would now be available for supporters, who will be allowed to attend the game if they return a negative lateral flow test from an approved site next to the stadium, the Times said.
