Warren Joyce is in charge of the side as the Reds aim to lift the trophy for the 19th time in its prestigious 75-year history. The travelling party is a mix of Under-21 and Under-18 players and United are competing in the group stages against Blue Stars, Torino and FC Zurich.
The Reds defeated Blue Stars 1-0 in the opening fixture on Wednesday with Adnan Januzaj scoring the goal from a free-kick. The scoreline was repeated against Torino with Januzaj again the matchwinner when blasting home to settle a combative match against the Italian side.
A goalless draw with FC Zurich ensured three successive clean sheets and a successful first day in the competition with Januzaj going close to keeping up his goal-a-game record. Cedric Brunner fired one chance wide for the Swiss outfit but an exciting encounter finished 0-0.
