Tips Man Utd to win    Best Bet @ 21 / 20  

Recent Form

United have had their problems of late but they have won all four of their matches in Group A, including a 3-0 success against Basel at Old Trafford, and they are very decent value for the win at 21/20 with Betfred.

Jose Mourinho's men have only lost one of their past sixteen European matches (won twelve, drawn three) and they have gone unbeaten in their past seven on the road (won five, drawn two) so they should be confident of taking all three points against a stuttering Basel.

The Swiss champions are already seven points adrift of Young Boys in their domestic table and they have been very poor in Europe for some time now, albeit they can still qualify for the knockout stages on Wednesday if they win and CSKA lose against Benfica.

That is a big 'if' though as Basel have only won two of their past nine European matches on home soil (drawn three, lost four), losing three of the past four in the process.

A Narrow United Win

Basel, who are without the suspended Taulant Xhaka, will do well to beat United in this one and they will struggle to break down a well-drilled away defence, although it is worth noting that Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are still injury doubts for the visitors.

United have kept 12 clean sheets in their last 18 outings in all competitions so there could be some value in the 23/10 for a United win to nil (Bet Victor), while the away side to win 1-0 can be backed at 13/2 (Betfair).

It is the United win in the outright market which looks a solid option and we'll back them for all three points.
