56 min: Fred's shot takes a turn and turns in the air. Lingard is embarrassed to prevent Von Bollsoom from claiming the catch easily and there is a chance for Fellaini to see the goalkeeper flipping the ball. Fellaini leans back and bluffs the ball over the empty net. Oh dear.
55 min: Matic passes a ball to Martial, who tries to free himself from his marker. The ball runs to Rashford, who slides and strikes a high and wide shot at close range. Mourinho looks completely exasperated.
54 min: Mbabu wins a second ball in the middle of the field and scolds forward. It's so lax from United. Mbabu swaps passes with Assale, makes a hole in the surface and shoots a shot into the side net from a tight angle.
53 min: Valencia cleans Aebischer. He is lucky not to be reserved.
46 min: Young boys start the second half. They made a change at halftime, Garcia replacing Von Bergen, the captain. Looks like they've gone to five.
Halftime: Manchester United 0-0 Young Boys
Yawning. Elsewhere, this is Juventus 0-0 Valencia. While Juventus are leading with 10 points, United is second with eight and Valencia is third with six.
45 min + 1: Assale sneaks from left to right passing some challenges and passes a pass to Mbabu right. The right back has plenty of room to make a tight turn to the next pole, where United is at sea. Sow comes in and tries an elaborate rear wheel that is a few feet wide. It was a good luck and a bad finish. United has been appreciated so easily.
45 min: Rashford cuts an annoying blow from the post to the right of the surface. There will be two more minutes.
42 min: Martial isolates Mbabu and thinks to overtake the defender. Then he falls and looks plaintively at the referee. Nope. Again.
41 min: Rashford goes down on the left after the terrible play of Young Boys in the middle of the field. This time he has the willingness to wait for support and save time with a brilliant comeback. Yet, when he tries to find the unidentified Fellaini in the middle, he surpasses the pass and luck is lost. Fred gathers on the right corner of the area, cuts in and leans inoffensively off.
40 min: Fellaini is an offside machine tonight. "A garbage channel bought the rights to the Champions League games in the United States this season and instead of having our choice of games to watch as we did, we only have one," says JR in Illinois. "For some unknown reason, they decided to give us the Roma / Real Madrid match. I would have rather seen Manchester City or even hated the current Jose Mourinho team. Given this option, I decided to look at Leeds v Reading instead. The score is 0-0 at halftime and Mike Dean dominates as expected. "
37 min: The optimistic center of Mbabu, coming from the right, crosses the United area and reaches Sulejmani. He takes a touch and aligns a shot, but Smalling throws himself in front of the ball. United counter, waking up their fans when Rashford drops a shoulder to buy space on the right. But when he looks up to see if he has any support in the middle, he has to check, turn around, turn around again, turn around and then send a lame center to anyone in particular.
36 min: Sulejmani collapses on the edge of the United zone, saying Valencia have been fouled. The referee judges that there is shoulder to shoulder and the waves are playing.
34 min: The Young Boys were not very good. United should do a lot more.
33 min: Martial tries to pass Camara, who defends himself to repel United's attacks.
30 minutes: Camara deflects Shaw's center directly onto Martial and makes up for his mistake by blocking the attacker's shot. He goes down and United continues to attack. Lingard has a 20-yard pass and uses handball against Von Bergen, who has certainly extended his elbow to deflect the ball off the edge of the box. Nothing to do, however, only a corner. Nothing comes from it.
26 min: Smalling made a pass to Lingard, who skilfully passed the ball to Rashford, plunging the Young Boys into disarray at the back. Rashford decides to shoot from 25 yards and Von Ballmoos, who looks beaten, is relieved to see the attacker 's bottom shot bouncing just above the right post.
25 min: Lingard rushes to the right and tries to find Rashford in the center. His cross is extremely poor.
24 min: It remains 0-0 in Turin, where Juventus plays in Valencia. It's odd to think that United could always win this group.
22 min: Shaw finds room on the left and whips in a cross that finds Lingard. He's trying to get back to Matic, but Aebischer is there first. He won the ball and Matic stepped on offense, for which he won a reservation once Jones cleared a Young Boys break.
19 min: Everything is united. Kind of. They have possession of the ball, but the Young Boys let him have it.
16 min: Martial finds space for the first time. Young Boys seemed panicked at the back. Martial turns around and seems ready to break the goal, but Camara has to stand up and deny it just in time. United continues to squeeze and the ball passes for Martial after a pinball blot, but the flag goes into an offside position. You feel that it may not take much to demolish this Young Boys defense. The question is whether United can keep calm.
14 min: United seems threatening in attack. Fellaini, the creative midfielder we were waiting for, drops a pass to Rashford, who is heading straight for Von Ballmoos.
13 min: The cameraman chooses Pogba and Lukaku in tracksuits, both delighted by what they watch from their seats.
12 min: Lingard sneaks a little recklessly on Benito and he is lucky not to touch the left rear. It could easily have been a red if he had caught his opponent.
9 min: It's a neglected charm of United, who is under more pressure when Fred and Lingard manage to give the ball in midfield. Sow rushes forward, but Jones cuts his pass.
8 min: Assale cuts inside and sees a deflected 20-meter shot for the first corner of the Young Boys. Sulejmani takes it and United faces it.
6 min: Fred picks up the ball at the edge of the surface and whistles an effort just after.
5 min: Shaw cuts a pass to Lingard. It's surprising, but the ball leaves Lingard and heads for Rashford, which is only outmatched by Balmoos. The Young Boys goalkeeper is just a few miles from his line, giving Rashford a big goal to hit, but the United striker lifts the ball far and wide! Jose Mourinho stands with his arms crossed on the sidelines and shakes his head.
4 min: Valencia takes a right and wins a free kick. Fred raises his head to Fellaini, who nods to Martial, but the United striker can not help but shoot and Young Bern manages to take off.
2 min: The ball goes to Lingard on the right, but he is offside.
Peep! Manchester United, in red shirt and black shorts, launches the game. There are plenty of free seats at the Theater of Dreams tonight. However, the Young Boys, wearing their gray shirts, brought a noisy, colorful and important suite. "The Portuguese Dave Sexton really spoils us tonight," said Jon Millard.
Here are the teams. We will have football soon.
A midfielder three of Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic and Fred, however. It reminds me of the Busquets-Xavi-Iniesta triumvirate.
The big news is that
Paul Pogba is only on the bench and Alexis Sanchez has been completely sidelined by Manchester United. Jose Mourinho responded relentlessly after the draw with Crystal Palace. The demotion of Pogba means that Fred makes a rare start in the middle of the field, while Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku also fall on the bench, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford joining the starting lineup. Meanwhile, Antonio Valencia replaces Ashley Young, absent, right back and Phil Jones in his place. for Victor Lindelof, injured. Many changes before this Saturday's trip to Southampton.

Recent news: The bus of the Manchester United team arrived at Old Trafford on time tonight. Signs of progress. Good times might be on the way home.
Hello and welcome to what promises to be another night of thrills and thrills to Theater of Dreams. After all, Jose Mourinho told his players to tackle this game against Group H by defeating the Young Boys as if it were a draw, although he hopes it does not mean he would want them to play as in Seville at home. again. He's probably better than he's hammering home before Manchester United gets into the bunch in about an hour, especially since you can not really know what this team is going to produce these days. Oh, how they tease us. Earlier this month, they were right, winning at the last minute in Bournemouth, then making a spectacular comeback to win the Juventus victory and breathe new life into a stabbing campaign in the Champions League. But they followed with a complete defeat at Manchester City in the derby before collapsing again in the depths last Saturday (0: 0) with Crystal Palace, who considered themselves unlucky not to leave the House of Amusement. Jose with the three points.
It's three wins in nine home games and Mourinho is starting to show resentment, questioning his team's personality and character in recent days. But if it was difficult in the league, at least United has a little more fun in Europe. After the defeat at home against Juventus last month, the record was disappointing, but this tribute to Turin 99 three weeks ago placed them in such an excellent position in the group that they could even qualify for the round of 16 with a game to lose if the results go their way tonight. If United do their best and look at the Young Boys, who lost 3-0 when they hosted the Mourinho team in September, it would be enough for Juventus to beat Valencia at home to secure a place in the last 16 .
It seems feasible, is not it? Even in the toughest moments, United would expect to beat the Young Boys, who have scored one point since their first four games, while Valencia will be opposed to Turin. The Spaniards are two points behind United, who visit Mestalla in their last group match next month. They have unfortunately no Marouane Fellaini to face Juve. If everything goes as planned, it could be a good night for Mourinho. The only problem, of course, is that you can not take anything for granted with United these days. Keep your expectations fluid.
Start: 20h GMT.
