Manchester United’s interim boss Ralf Rangnick takes charge of the club for the first time in the Champions League as the Red Devils wrap up their group campaign at home to BSC Young Boys. United are already assured to finish top of the group, while their Swiss opponents must win – and hope Atalanta lose to Villarreal – if they want to come third and enter the Europa League after the new year.

The stand-in manager won his first game in the dugout at the weekend and said he was delighted with what he saw. “I was positively surprised by the physical state and intensity,” he said. “The first half hour was amazing. I felt it was extremely high tempo, high intensity, always on the front. The only thing that was missing in this first half hour was scoring one or two, if not three, goals.”

United are unbeaten in four games across all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskajer was sacked, three of which came under the guidance of Michael Carrick. Follow live updates of Man United vs Young Boys in the Champions League below:

12 mins: That should settle the home side down. Matic again feeds a pass up to Lingard who’s drifting on the edge of the Young Boys midfield line and making some nice runs into the final third. This time though he runs into three defenders and loses possession.

GOAL! Man Utd 1 – 0 Young Boys (Greenwood, 9’) ⚽️

9 mins: What a finish! Matic slides a fine pass through the middle of the pitch and picks out Jesse Lingard who waits for Luke Shaw to fly forward on the overlap before sending the ball out to the left wing. Shaw collects the pass and brings it inside. He flicks a cross into the middle of the box and picks out Mason Greenwood. Greenwood makes himself horizontal as the ball is a little behind him and somehow manages to volley a shot back at goal and nestle the ball into the near corner! Great goal.

Man Utd 0 – 0 Young Boys

Kick off: There’s a few young faces out there for Manchester United. Anthony Elanga and Amad Diallo are impressive and will be hoping to show off their skills. It’s also a big night for Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka who are both trying to earn their places back in the first choice 11.

The visitors get the match underway and work the ball out to the right wing where it goes out for a United throw in.
