Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Manchester United will be looking to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Leipzig when they take on Basaksehir at Fatih Terim Stadium. The Red Devils impressed in their second group game, and they are now on a quest to keep their 100% record in Group H intact. Considering that the Turkish side do not seem to be competitive at this level, it is no wonder the Premier League side are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s clash.
Anthony Martial missed the Premier League clash against Arsenal through suspension, but he is available for selection for the Champions League showdown. Anyhow, David faces Goliath in Istanbul, and we are positive that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are going to pick up all three points from the match. Keep in mind that this will be the first meeting between the two clubs in the elite competition.

Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
