Ronaldo Will Play in United’s Debut Champions League Football Match

The football news – Manchester United’s squad includes Cristiano Ronaldo’s name for their Champions League opener against Young Boys in Switzerland. So, Ronaldo will play in United’s debut Champions League football match, after we’ve already named him in the probable starting line-up.

According to The Athletic, Manchester United tweeted about Cristiano Ronaldo 114 times since his comeback to Old Trafford this summer.

In other words, United’s Twitter has featured CR7 114 times between the day he joined the club and yesterday morning.

The former Real Madrid player re-signed with the English club from Juventus at the end of the summer transfer window.

And this has caused a flurry of excitement in Manchester ever since which proves that Cristiano brings a lot to the table off the field as well.

For instance, in the 24 hours following his signing, United gained 3.7 million followers across all their social media channels.

Also, the post announcing his signing on both Twitter and Instagram became the most-liked by a sports team in history on both platforms.

Ronaldo Will Play in United’s Debut Champions League Football Match

Cristiano Ronaldo brilliantly scored a brace in his second Manchester United debut in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Newcastle. As a result of this Old Trafford performance, United deem him ready and the 36-year-old is likely to play tonight.

He is indeed part of the 22-man squad that will travel to Bern for Tuesday’s Group F clash.

The Portuguese was, of course, a key part of United’s last Champions League victory, when they defeated Chelsea in 2008.

Ronaldo last played in a Champions League match for Manchester United in their 2009 final loss to Barcelona in Rome.

Now, Ronaldo is preparing to feature for his club in the Champions League again, after 12 years.

The fact that Edinson Cavani is out again with a knock supports this prediction, as United need a goal scorer up front.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Dean Henderson is also out as he recovers from Covid-19.

Finally, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, Alex Telles, and Phil Jones are also going to be absent tonight.

And Anthony Elanga and Matej Kovar are among the substitutes that United may rely on.
