UEFA Champions League

Changing the venue of Man United's match against Young Boys could cost Man United millions

Manchester United have already secured their place in the next round of the Champions League competition. The Red Devils have a game to spare and as it turns out, the game they do not need to play, could cost them millions of money. The spare game is against Young Boys, a team that handed Manchester United their first defeat in the Champions League this season.

Ralf Rangnick is expected to be in charge of Manchester United vs Young Boys.

After a new variant of coronavirus broke out, the match against Young Boys could be moved to a neutral venue. This is due to concerns around the new Omicron coronavirus variant. Currently, anyone entering Switzerland from the UK must isolate for 10 days. This means that Young Boys squad that will face Manchester United could be forced to isolate for 10 days, a move UEFA is keen to avoid.

If this rule does apply to the Young Boys squad, UEFA rules state that a neutral should be found, even if it means the game has to be moved to a different date. It is yet not clear if the rule will affect the Young Boys squad but if the game is moved, it would cost Manchester United millions of money.
