Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may become the first Manchester United manager to lose both of his team's Champions League openers.
In the Swiss capital a fortnight ago, the Norwegian stood by and watched the Red Devils be defeated by Young Boys.
They play Villarreal on Wednesday night, the team that defeated them in the Europa League final last season.
If they lose, they will be rooted to the bottom of the group, and Solskjaer will become the first United manager to lose his first two games.
In the Champions League, Sir Alex Ferguson has only ever lost his first match, a 1-0 loss to Juventus in 1996.They replied by defeating Rapid Wien and progressing to the semi-finals of the competition that year.
After losing to Aston Villa on Saturday, Solskjaer's squad hasn't had the best preparation.
The fitness of captain Harry Maguire and left-back Luke Shaw is also an issue for the Red Devils.
Following their match against Villarreal United, they will play a double header versus Atlanta of Italy.
In his third full season in command, Solskjaer is under pressure to win trophies.
With Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho all expected to arrive in the summer, he has been backed in the market.
Following their recent defeat to West Ham, the Carabao Cup has already been scratched off their list of prospective prizes.
