Manchester United start their Champions League campaign against Young Boys in Switzerland on Tuesday evening.

United travel to Bern for their first group stage game after beating Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.

A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo on his second debut for the club was accompanied by goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side put the Magpies to the sword after a mini-scare.

The win saw United move to the top of the Premier League and they’ll be heavy favourites to get their European campaign off to the perfect start.
