Manchester United is welcoming Basaksehir FK to Old Trafford in round 4 in the UEFA Champions League.
Well, it happened, Manchester has won their first home game of the season, barely. This past weekend, Manchester United was hosting West Bromwich, and they were the better team in that game with 63% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 85% of the correct passes. With a goal from the penalty spot in the 56th minute, Manchester United has won this game 1-0. With 6 points, 8 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, United is at the top of their group in the Champions League. United has lost to Basaksehir on the road in their last Champions League game, and they will look to get a win here and to continue their winning streak. Rashford has scored 4 goals for United in the Champions League, while Martial added 2 goals. Pogba has 2 assists, but he is still questionable for this game. Baily is now the only injured player for Manchester United. With only 13 points, United is in 10th place in the EPL, but they have been playing well in the Champions League, and I see them advancing to the next stage, and their first home win of the season in the EPL has taken a lot of pressure from Manchester United.
After 3 wins in a row, Basaksehir has lost their last game in the Turkish Super Lig to Besiktas on the road. The final score was 3-2. Basaksehir is in 6th place in the Super Lig standings with 13 points, 13 scored goals, and 12 conceded goals so far. In their latest Champions League game, Basaksehir has had 31% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. With 2 goals in the first half, Basaksehir has won this match 2-1. Basaksehir has scored only 2 goals so far in the Champions League, but they have the same amount of points as PSG in third place, but honestly, I can’t imagine Basaksehir getting to that place with teams like PSG, Leipzig, and United in their group. Visca and Demba Ba have each scored 1 goal for Basaksehir in the Champions League. Visca has also added 1 assist. Caicara and Sengezer are both injured, while Guno and Aleksic are both in quarantine. Basaksehir got lucky against United, and they got close to the Europa League, but I don’t think they have the quality to play 3 more games as well as they did against Manchester United.
As I’ve mentioned before, United has lost the only game against Basaksehir, but this game is being played under a different circumstance. United has won their first home game in the EPL, which has taken a lot of pressure from them, and they have been playing better in the Champions League. United is the better team here, and I will side with Manchester United at home.
