However, they will take confidence from the fact that they already defeated their visitors earlier in the competition, taking a 3-0 win home from Switzerland in September.

Betting & Match Odds
Home side Manchester United are favourites to win at 2/7 per bet365 and Young Boys are rated as 10/1 bets to emerge victorious. A draw at Old Trafford is deemed unlikely at 21/4.
Manchester United fans may have hoped to see a refreshed team when they returned to action after the international break, but it was more of the same from Mourinho's men as they stumbled against Palace.
In what has become a familiar sequence, Mourinho subsequently criticised the intensity and desire - or lack thereof - of his players and has warned that they will lose against Young Boys on Tuesday if they continue in the same manner.
Defeat - or even a draw - against the Swiss outfit at home would be a blow for the Red Devils as it would jeopardise their chances of reaching the last 16, something supporters and the United board will be expecting.
However, as negative as Mourinho has been in his pronouncements, it does not seem likely, particularly when one considers the ease with which they dispatched the same opposition in Bern.
