Manchester United have already qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League, so tonight's wet and rainy clash with Young Boys could see new interim manager Ralf Rangnick give some fresh faces a run out. Kick off is 8pm GMT at Old Trafford. Make sure you know how to watch a Manchester United vs Young Boys live stream from anywhere the world.

Canadian soccer fans can stream Manchester United vs Young Boys free on DAZN with this 30-day free trial. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a Canadian stuck outside Canada. Those in the States can try the free 7-day trial of Paramount+ for coverage instead.

The team news is in and it's a fairly standard looking line-up for United with the exception of starts for Elanga and Amad. Jesse Lingard also gets to show what he can do for the new boss. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes are both rested. Plenty of young faces on the bench.

The Reds progressed to the knockout stages of the 2021/22 Champions League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Villarreal two weeks ago. While United have locked-in the top spot, though, they will be wary of their final Group F opponents. Swiss club Young Boys pulled off a 2-1 win on matchday one against a 10-man United.

Barring another terrible back pass, United should be able to brush aside the 15-time Swiss league champions. It's also set to be Ralf Rangnick's first chance to conduct an experiment or two.

"I don't know if we play a completely new 10 players because I don't know if we have enough players on the [Champions League] list," Rangnick said. "But it's definitely possible we could play with some new players."

Could we see Jadon Sancho playing alongside the likes of Mason Greenwood and Anthony Elanga? And will Cristiano Ronaldo, the only player to have previously scored in all six group games, get a chance to complete his clean sweep?

It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at Old Trafford tonight, Wednesday, 8th December 2021. Read on for more details on how to watch a Manchester United vs Young Boys live stream wherever you are in the world.

DAZN Canada: Watch Manchester United vs Young Boys

Watch a Man United vs Young Boys live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Manchester United vs Young Boys live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days

ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.


Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Champions League, you may wish to choose 'Canada' for DAZN Canada or 'USA' for Paramount +.

3. Then head over to Paramount+ or DAZN on your browser or device and enjoy the Manchester United vs Young Boys live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
