Manchester United vs Basel (13/9/2017)
Man Utd are back among the Europe’s elite as they embark on their 21st group stage appearance. And they will have a set of tricky opponents to contend with. FC Basel simply love to play at Old Trafford and are unbeaten on their two previous visits here – including a thrilling 3-3 draw in 2012. The Red Devils, though, have a stellar European home record, unbeaten in the past 18 games there. Their last defeat was in the 2012/13 Round of 16 second leg, a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid. Basel, however, have not won in their last five European away matches. A 0-0 draw at Ludogorets last season halted a four match losing streak. They might find it easier to crack the United defence, who will be missing Phil Jones and Eric Bailly. Both are serving one-match bans.
