Manchester United vs Istanbul Basaksehir: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Manchester United will look to make it three wins in a row when they host Istanbul Başakşehir in the Champions League on Tuesday at 8:00 PM (UK time).
Man Utd vs Istanbul Başakşehir: Predictions
The Red Devils fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat the last time these two sides met at the start of November but since then, have put Everton and West Brom to the sword in the Premier League, winning 3-1 and 1-0, respectively.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men remain top of Group H with six points from three games and can go a long way toward sealing their progression into the round-of-16 with a victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
Başakşehir, meanwhile, head to Manchester off the back of a damaging 3-2 Turkish Super Lig defeat to Besiktas, leaving them sixth in the table, seven points adrift of leaders Alanyaspor and Fenerbahce.
However, manager Okan Buruk knows that a win here will draw them level with United in the Group H standings, keeping their dreams of a first-ever Champions League knockout stage appearance very much alive.
