Manchester United return to Champions League action this week with hope that Cristiano Ronaldo can provide the cut-throat experience required to go the distance in the world’s finest domestic tournament.
Ronaldo lifted the iconic trophy with Manchester United in 2008 before going on to win the competition four more times with Real Madrid. United’s journey this season begins with a trip to face Young Boys.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men missed out on European silverware last season as they lost to Villarreal on penalties during the Europa League final.
Solskjaer knows that while his team have grown under his stewardship, fans are restless for a steady stream of silverware and expect Ronaldo to aid the cause in 2021/22 and beyond.
Young Boys faced United in the Group Stage back in 2018 but failed to score a goal as United won 3-0 in Switzerland and 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Our prediction: Young Boys v Man Utd
United have started the season in strong form with plenty to get excited about in attack with more to come. Marcus Rashford won’t return to action yet, Edinson Cavani also occupies the physio room, while Jadon Sancho is yet to hit the heights but will be afforded time and patience to do so.
Contributions from the rejuvenated Jesse Lingard offer another option for Solskjaer to consider during midweek games, while the experience and sheer threat of Ronaldo, backed up by Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, will be enough to see them through tricky away days in the Champions League.
United sides have stumbled on the continent over the last few years, but this squad looks too talented, too driven to fail in the group stages this time around.
