FC Basel v Man United Team News

This game sees Group A’s top 2 teams slog it out. Basel hold 2nd by virtue of goal difference whilst the Red Devils have all but qualified - they are 6 points clear at the top and will secure top spot with just a draw here.

United have won their last 4 games in the competition, scoring 10 goals in the process and keeping 5 clean sheets in their last 7. The only team to score past this well organised United side in Europe is CSKA Moscow - and that was in a 4-1 loss for the Russians.

It is possible that Mourinho’s Reds will know their fate before kick off here, if CSKA fail to beat Benfica in the early kick off. Mourinho, however, is a born winner, so don't think he will let the players take the foot off the gas here and there should be goals - 4 of the 5 meetings between these two have finished with over 2.5 goals (total) and both teams scored in 4 of 5.

The last time United visited this stadium they were humiliated by Basel - losing 2-1 and being knocked out of their CL group under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011. No matter what happens here it cannot end that badly this time around.

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

FC Basel: Vaclik - Balanta, Suchy, Akanji - Petretta, Zuffi, Dié, Lang - Oberlin, Ajeti, Steffen (3-4-3 formation)

Man United: Gea - Blind, Smalling, Lindelöf, Darmian - Fellaini, Matic, Herrera - Rashford, Lukaku, Mkhitaryan (4-3-3 formation)

Missing Players of FC Basel and Man United:

FC Basel: Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Germano Vailati, Omar Gaber, Taulant Xhaka.

Man United: Michael Carrick, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones.

Conclusion and Betting Prediction:

Having scored 3 goals in 2 games for his native Belgium during the international break - Romelu Lukaku has became his country's top goalscorer of all time with 31 goals to his name. He was back with a bang in the PL also, fresh from scoring vs Newcastle in a 4-1 rout.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back, quite amazingly at the age of 36 after suffering serious ligament damage in April. When asked about it post-game after Newcastle - the imposing Swede stated quite simply (with a wry smile on his face) “Lions, they don’t recover like humans” in classic Zlatan style.
