Young Boys get ready to take on resurgent Atalanta in a crucial Champions League encounter that may even decide the fate of Villarreal and Manchester United.
The Swiss side are in fourth place in Group F but have a chance of climbing to third if they manage to best Gianpiero Gasperini’s side.
Statistically speaking, both sides have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition especially if Manchester United lose to Villarreal in Spain. This group is definitely going to be decided on matchday six but if Atalanta are able to get a win on Tuesday night, they will be in a better place to go through to the next stage.
Young Boys have had a decent campaign in the Champions League which started with a shock win over Manchester United but the Swiss minnows need a win over the Italians to have any chance of progression.
Atalanta on the other hand, surrendered a great opportunity against United last time out and will need to boost their hopes with a win ahead of the crucial last game against Villarreal on December 8. La Dea are on a good run of form at the moment and have lost only once in their last eight away games in all competitions.
