The current Champions League champion returns to the field this Wednesday (2). Manchester City visits Young Boys, in Bern, Switzerland, in a match valid for the third round of the group stage of Europe’s main club competition. The duel at the Stade de Suisse will be broadcast live on HBO Max streaming.
How does Young Boys arrive?
The Swiss club will try to surprise the strong Manchester City to maintain their chances of qualifying. The team only scored one point in the first two rounds and is still looking for its first victory in this edition of the Champions League. Thus, the Swiss appear in third place in Group G, with the same score as bottom-placed Estrela Vermelha, and two less than second-placed RB Leipzig.
At the same time, coach Raphael Wicky will not have absences or suspensions for this Wednesday’s match and will be able to field the team at full strength against City.
How are Manchester City arriving?
After suffering three consecutive defeats in national competitions, the worst sequence under Pep Guardiola’s command, City won again last weekend by defeating Brighton 2-1 in the Premier League. This way, the team arrives under less pressure for this Wednesday’s game, where they seek to maintain their 100% record in the Champions League and advance to the round of 16.
Furthermore, Pep Guardiola will have almost the entire team at his disposal. Thus, the only confirmed absence is Kevin de Bruyne, injured, who is only expected to return in 2024. Furthermore, the team has the return of goalkeeper Ederson, spared in the last match after the FIFA Data was worn out.
