UEFA CL: Lukaku up against familiar foes as Real Madrid begins title defence

Manchester United begin their UEFA Champions League campaign with a tie against Young Boys on Wednesday in Switzerland with the English giants hoping that striker Romelu Lukaku can continue with his good streak against their opponents.

The Belgian has netted five goals in his previous two meetings with Young Boys, including a hat-trick for Everton in the Europa League in the 2014/15 campaign but the Jose Mourinho coached side should be wary of their poor record in the country. They have lost on each of their last two Champions League trips to Switzerland. Basel beat them 2-1 in December 2011 and 1-0 in November 2017.
