UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester United vs. Young Boys
Before you tune in to Tuesday's showdown, you need to see the Manchester United vs. Young Boys picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Manchester United vs. Young Boys, Green is taking Manchester United -1.5 at +100 odds, meaning he's picking Manchester United to win by at least two goals. These two clubs first met nearly three years ago during the 2018-19 Champions League group stage and the Red Devils prevailed 3-0. Young Boys have yet to find the back of the net in their two games versus Manchester United.
The Young Boys' defense was shaky in its leadup to the group stage, as the team allowed eight goals through six qualifying matches. As the competition got better, the Young Boys' defense soured, as it conceded four goals in the play-off round aggregate against Ferencvaros. The Hungarian side doesn't have any player near the class of Cristiano Ronaldo, who netted two goals in his return to Manchester United. Ronaldo rejoined a star-studded Red Devils lineup and Green sees Man U cruising to a victory.
"Its starting 11 now looks phenomenal," Green told SportsLine. "David De Gea is a solid goalkeeper, while the arrival of Varane has fixed the weak link in defense. He lines up alongside captain Harry Maguire and full-backs Aaron Wan-Bisakka.
