United The Red Hot Favourites

Man United have started this season in fine form with ten points from their first four Premier League matches, and a quick start in the Champions League is now a must. Jose Mourinho spent big money in the summer to strengthen his squad, and it appears to have worked with Romelu Lukaku fitting in up top.

They were held to a 2-2 draw at Stoke at the weekend which was a slightly disappointing result, but Mourinho is an old master in European competition, and as such United are 1/5 with Hills to win this one.

Basel are experienced in the group stages of the Champions League but their form in Switzerland this season has been patchy, with three wins from seven matches, and their thin squad ensures they are as big as 18/1 with bet365.

Red Rom Can Put The Swiss Side To The Sword

United struggled to break teams down at home last season but they have had no such issues so far this term with much more pace in the team in attack.

Marcus Rashford has kicked on once again on the wing but the main difference so far has been Romelu Lukaku as the main striker. The former Everton man may have cost £75m in the summer, but it has been money well spent so far with four goals in his first four matches for his new club.

Lukaku doesn't have too much experience in the Champions League but he has already proven himself the man to finish the majority of the United chances, and he could well have a field day against a Basel side that have leaked nine goals in seven games this season in the Swiss Super League.

Surprisingly, United have never beaten Basel at home with two draws between the teams in their only two previous Champions League matches at Old Trafford, but we very much expect that record to be improved this week. Led by Lukaku, we can only see a comfortable home win with the former Everton striker a lovely price at 13/5 with bet365 to score at least two goals on his Champions League debut for his new club.
