Basel - Manchester United Tips
Football - Group A
OUR TIP: MANCHESTER UNITED TO WIN
Manchester United meet Basel once again but this time its in the 5th round of the group stages of the 2017/18 Champions League. The tables are turned this time around too as FC Basel host the Red Devils in this game. United hosted the opening game of the group between these 2 teams but now the Swiss team get hosting rights. As mentioned so often this year, Man United made the step up from the Europa League last season, when they won it. Now there's some speculation as to why they were there in the 1st place but that's all in the past as their are back competing in the most sought after competition in football. And making the step up from Europa League last season, obviously wasn't too much for the Manchester club as they cannot be faulted in their Champions League campaign. They are unbeaten with 4 wins from 4 games, looking very likely to top the group and advance to the latter stages of the competition. As for Basel they're not quite up to par but they are not out of the running either. They are in 2nd place with 6 points. Another result or 2 could see them advance with United but they are also tied with CSKA Moscow so it could either way. As we mentioned, United are unbeaten, thus meaning that they defeated Basel in the 1st round. They won 3-0. Although it was on in Old Trafford, we don't think that had too much to do with the result, we just think Mancehster were too strong for Basel.
