Leagues Tipped:

The 2021/22 Champions League campaign gets up and running on Tuesday night and SlipsTips shares his favourite fancy from one of the opening fixtures in Group F.

Young Boys vs Man United (Tuesday, 17:45)

Manchester United have made a strong start to the season and they will be looking to carry that momentum into their Champions League curtain-raiser at Young Boys on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils will be determined to improve upon last season's disappointing group-stage exit but they have been handed a more favourable draw this time around, with Atalanta and Villarreal making up the rest of Group F.

United start their quest for Champions League glory against Swiss kings Young Boys, who will be dining at Europe's top table for just the second time in their history.

Given their superior quality, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side should start with a win on Tuesday night, but I'm going to steer clear of the outright betting and instead dip into the number of cards market.

We can get some 10/11 (PaddyPower ) on Over 3.5 Cards to be shown at the Stade de Suisse on Tuesday night and that price looks slightly too big to me.

David Wagner's men made it through three rounds of qualifiers to secure a much-coveted spot in money-spinning groups-stages, with 5/6 preliminary fixtures featuring five or more cards.

In fact, three of Young Boys' last four qualifiers saw the referee reach for a red card and that perhaps explains why the aforementioned bet has been priced up a lot shorter elsewhere.

Young Boys' attacking style of play tends to leave them exposed on the counter-attack so there should be plenty of potential for cynical fouls during this clash of styles.

Sure, you wouldn't necessarily associate Man United with cards, but the Red Devils have received the most booking points in each of their two top-flight road trips this term, picking up three cautions at Southampton and then four at Wolves.

What's more, referee Francois Letexier averaged 4.1 cards per-game last season while flashing four and five cards in two outings this term, so all things considered, I'll happily back Over 3.5 Cards in Bern
