The result means that United cannot be overthrown from the group summit after our excellent 2-0 win at Villarreal. Although the Spanish team is three points behind us, the head-to-head race favors the Reds after our two victories over the Yellow Submarine.
We welcome the Young Boys on December 8th (8:00 p.m. GMT kick-off at Old Trafford) and hope to avenge our loss to them in the group’s first game. The guests still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League, but cannot now move into the knockout phase of the Champions League.
Our next Premier League appearance after the tie is on Saturday (December 11th, 5.30pm GMT kick-off) in Norwich City.
Atalanta must beat Villarreal at home to take second place from Unai Emery’s men.
