Manchester City vs. Young Boys LIVE: They face each other this Wednesday, October 25 for matchday 3 of Group G of the Champions League.

How does Manchester City get to the Champions League match?
Manchester City come into the match with two clear slogans: to secure their presence in the knockout stages of the Champions League and to maintain their unbeaten streak in European competitions (eleven wins and five draws).
However, he is having a problem: Erling Haaland’s goal drought. The Norwegian’s last goal in the Champions League dates back to April 19, 2023, when Manchester City beat Bayern Munich.
From that match to the previous one with Young Boys, five games have passed, and in none of them has he been able to score.
Pep Guardiola, City’s manager, explains this change in trend from expectations. Haaland far surpassed them last year, in what was supposed to be his season of adaptation to the Premier League, and as soon as his numbers this season have not been matched, the Norwegian is criticized.
“The expectations are very high, but he handles them very well. He knows he could have scored a lot more goals in the first nine Premier League games. The treble has had a lot of influence on us, myself included, but we have to be there, close, and reach the final months of the competition close to our rivals to try again,” explained the Sampedor man after City’s win over Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.

How is Young Boys coming along?
Young Boys, the reigning Swiss champions, face the toughest test of the season when they host defending champions Manchester City at the Stadion Wankdorf in Bern.
The team finished last in their only two appearances in the group stage of the Champions League, so they will be hoping to take revenge in this edition. However, with only one point earned and two games to play against the English team, the outlook is not positive.
But, there is hope. The last time they shared a group with a team from England, Manchester United, they did not lose: 2-1 at home and 1-1 away.
