54 min: Mbabu wins a second ball in the midfield and rolls forward. That's so loose from United. Mbabu exchanges pass with Assale, they invade the area and shoot in the side net from a tight angle.
53 min: Valencia clean Aebischer. He's lucky not to be booked.
48 min: Camara is reserved to cut Martial from behind.
46 min: Young boys begin the second half in progress. They made a change in the interval, Garcia replaced Von Bergen, the captain. Looks like they've changed to five.
Interval: Manchester United 0-0 Young Boys
To yawn. Elsewhere, it is Juventus 0-0 Valencia. Juventus are top with 10 points, United are second with eight and Valencia are third with six.
45 min + 1: Assale jumps into the left, through some challenges, and gives a pass to Mbabu on the right. The right back has plenty of room to divert a cross to the nearest post where United is at sea. The nut arrives and attempts an elaborate backheel that is a few feet wide. This was a great chance and a bad end. United has been distinguished so easily.
45 min: Rashford reduces an embarrassing kick from the nearest post to the right of the area. There will be two minutes added.
42 min: Marcial isola Mbabu and thinks about passing for the defender. Then he falls and looks gloomily at the referee. No. Again.
41 min: Rashford runs up off the left touchline, after a bad play by Young Boys in the center of the goal. This time he has the presence of mind to wait for support and save time with a brilliant "dragback". However, when he tries to find the Fellaini without marking in the middle, he overhits the pass and the chance is gone. Fred collects in the right corner of the area, cuts in and folds a harmlessly wide shot.
40 min: Fellaini is an impediment machine tonight. "Some trash channels have bought the rights to the Champions League games in the US this season and instead of having our selection of games to watch like we used to, we get only one," says JR in Illinois. "For some unknown reason, they decided to give us Roma x Real Madrid. I would rather see Manchester City or even hate the current Jose Mourinho team. Given this option, I decided to watch Leeds v Reading instead. It's 0-0 at halftime and Mike Dean is dominating as expected. "
37 min: Mbabu's hopeful cross from the right somehow crosses the United area and hits Sulejmani. He takes a touch and shoots a shot, but Smalling plays in front of the ball. United counter, waking his fans when Rashford falls one shoulder to buy some space on the right. But when he looks up to see if he has some support in the middle, he has to check, turn back, turn around, turn around again and then send a cross to no one in particular.
36 min: Sulejmani falls on the edge of the United area, claiming the lack of Valencia. The referee thinks it was shoulder to shoulder and the waves continue to play.
34 min: The Young Boys were not very good. United should be doing a lot more.
33 min: Martial tries to pass for Camara, who stands firm to knock out the United striker.
30 minutes: Camara deflects the cross from Shaw straight to Martial and makes up for the error by blocking the attacker's kick. He descends and United continues to attack. Lingard has a 20-yard overflow and calls for handball against Von Bergen, who certainly stretched his elbow to divert the ball to the edge of the area. Nothing doing, however, just a corner. Nothing comes of it.
26 min: Smalling makes a pass to Lingard, who skillfully throws the ball to Rashford, playing Young Boys in disorder in the back. Rashford decides to shoot from 25 yards and Von Ballmoos, who looks beaten, is relieved to see the low rebound of the striker being well away from the right post.
25 min: Lingard runs to the right and tries to find Rashford in the middle. His cross is extremely poor.
24 min: Remains 0-0 in Turin, where Juventus is playing Valencia. It's strange to think that United can still win this group.
22 min: Shaw finds space on the left and whips a cross that meets Lingard. He tries to play it back to Matic, but Aebischer is there first. He wins the ball and Matic steps on his foot, an offense for which he earns a reserve once Jones clears a Young Boys smash.
19 min: It's all united. Kind of. They are in charge, but the Young Boys are letting them own it.
16 min: Martial finds space to run for the first time. Young Boys looked panicky in the back. Martial twists and turns and looks ready to break into the goal, just for Camara to stretch a leg and deny it on time. United continue to press and the ball kicks to Martial after a pinball, but the flag goes out of play. You feel like it can not take long to break this Young Boys defense. The question is whether United can maintain their composure.
14 min: United looks threatening in attack. Fellaini, the creative midfielder we were hoping for, slides to Rashford, who kicks straight into Von Ballmoos from a tight angle.
13 min: The camera operator chooses the pair of Pogba and Lukaku, both looking lively with what they are watching in their seats in the bank.
12 min: Lingard advances recklessly on Benito and he is happy to have no contact with the left back. This could easily have been a red one if he caught his opponent.
9 min: This is a bad spell for United, who gets more pressure when Fred and Lingard try to hit the ball in midfield. Semear throws forward, but Jones cuts his pass.
8 min: Assale cuts in and sees a 20-yard offense to the first corner of the Young Boys. Sulejmani accepts and United deals with it.
6 min: Fred picks up the ball at the edge of the area and whistles an effort.
5 minShaw picks up a pass for the Lingard. It is overhit, but the ball quickly passes out of Lingard and runs to Rashford, who blows up with only Balmoos to hit. The Young Boys goalkeeper is miles away from his line, giving Rashford a big target to hit, but the United striker raises the ball by inches! José Mourinho has his arms crossed on the sidelines and shakes his head.
4 min: Valencia goes down and receives a free kick. Fred raises the ball to Fellaini, who waves the ball to Martial, but the United striker can not get away and young Berna is on the run.
2 minutes: The ball breaks to Lingard on the right, but is barred for miles.
Peep! Manchester United, in a red shirt and black shorts, starts the game. There are many empty seats in the Theater of Dreams tonight. However, the Young Boys, in their gray shirts, brought with them a loud, colorful and considerable accompaniment. "Portuguese Dave Sexton is really messing us up tonight," says Jon Millard.
Here come the teams. We will have football soon.
A midfield three of Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic and Fred, however. This reminds me of the Busquets-Xavi-Iniesta triumvirate.
The great news is that
Paul Pogba is just on the bench and Alexis Sanchez was left out by Manchester United. Jose Mourinho reacted ruthlessly after the draw with Crystal Palace. Pogba's relegation makes Fred start rare in the midfield, while Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku also go to the bench, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford entering the opening game. Meanwhile, Antonio Valencia replaces Ashley Young on the right side and Phil Jones comes. for the injured Victor Lindelof. Many changes before Saturday's trip to Southampton.

Breaking news: The Manchester United team bus arrived at Old Trafford on time tonight. Signs of progress. Good times could well be on the way back.
Hello and welcome to what promises to be another night of emotions and spills Dream Theater. After all, Jose Mourinho told his players to approach the game against Group H, which is a knockout, but he hopes they do not understand that he wants them to play as if it were Sevilla at home. again. It's probably best that he play at home before Manchester United come on the pitch in an hour, especially since you can not be sure what the team will produce these days. Oh, how they provoke us. Earlier this month, they were right, winning at the last minute in Bournemouth, then producing a stunning comeback to win at Juventus and give new life to a stuttering campaign in the Champions League. But they followed that up with a sweeping defeat for Manchester City in the classic before plunging into the depths again last Saturday, drawing 0-0 with Crystal Palace, who was unlucky enough to leave Jose's House of Fun with the three points.
They are three victories in nine home games now and Mourinho is starting to show signs of grudge again, questioning the personality and character of his team in recent days. But although it was a fight in the league, at least United is having a little more fun in Europe. It was looking risky following Juventus' home defeat last month, but their tribute to Turin '99 three weeks ago put them in such a great position in the group that they could even qualify for the knockout round with a game to spare if the results go your way tonight. If Manchester United do their part and beat Young Boys, who lost 3-0 when they received Mourinho's team in September, all they need is for Juventus to beat Valencia at home to secure a place in the round of 16, Last.
It seems feasible, does not it? Even in his more worked United, hopes to beat the Young Boys, who has scored a point in the first four games, while Valencia will be in Turin. The Spaniards are two points behind second-placed United – who visit the Mestalla in their last group game next month – and unfortunately do not have a Marouane Fellaini to play against Juve. If everything goes as expected, this can be a great night for Mourinho. The only problem, of course, is that you can not give anything as guaranteed in United these days. Keep your expectations flowing.
Beginning: 20:00 GMT.
