Manchester United lock horns with Swiss champions Basel in Group A of the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils started the season with a 100% record but were brought back to earth at Stoke City over the weekend where they drew 2-2. They have triumphed in their last five matches at home and will be expected to bring this impressive form to bear in this engagement with the Bebbi.
Jose Mourinho’s men qualified for the Group Stage of Europe's top tier competition after winning the 2016/2017 UEFA Europa League last season and will be hoping to start their campaign on a good note.
The Old Trafford giants have been unscratched in three of their last five games. They also boast of a slim advantage over their guests on head to head and as such Nairabet is offering (1.20) for them to come out on top in the outing.
It will not be out of place for the challenge to end in a stalemate because two of their past four meetings ended in a deadlock. The betting outfit is putting up (7.25) for the same result to surface in the clash.
For Wicky’s side, they will be expected to give their best in the game but might still end up losing following their poor form in their recent encounters. They have only managed to win two of their last five matches and going by the current form of the English side they will be no match for Mourinho’s charges. The St. Jakob-Park outfit are massive underdogs with Nairabet a price of (17.00).
The half-time result is expected to go the way of the Red Devils as they will be firing on all cylinders in the engagement having racked up 12 goals in their last four outings. Odds of (1.55) are available for United to set the pace in the duel by winning the first half.
