Manchester United vs Basel Prediction 12 September 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Old Trafford Stadium
Match date: 13.09.2017 at 19:45

On September 12 2017 at 19:45 in the starting game of the first round of the Champions League group stage at the Old Trafford Stadium the local Manchester United will play against the Swiss Basel.

The international break appeared to be not useful for Manchester United at all. In the starting three games they won with 10:0 goal difference and latest in the fourth match they drew Stoke City 2:2 last Saturday. We must also admit that it’s the fifth season in a row when Manchester United can’t outplay the Potters in the away match. Anyway, they had too little time for preparation and now Mourinho will definitely help the team improve their conditions.

As for Basel, they, in their turn, have already played seven games in the new season in the national championship and nobody actually expected them to show these horrible results, in fact. The latest game on September 9 was an actual sensation in the Swiss national elite division as they were outplayed by Lausanne, who are now still on the last place in the standings. Even before that Basel drew the middle peasants of the league Sion and Lugarno with the same 1:1 score. We should also remind you that in the previous season Basel had a very unsuccessful campaign as they only gained 2 points and took the last place in the table of their group below Arsenal, LSG and Ludogorets.

Manchester United and Basel have already played four games against each other. First time it happened in the season 2002/03 and last time it was in the season 2011/12. In the first game MU won 1:3 and in the second one the teams drew 1:1.  Next time the teams drew 3:3 and Manchester United lost 2:1 in Switzerland. Even though the Red Devils didn’t manage to win in their latest English Premier League game, we still think that they will still manage to show great performance and win in the upcoming match at the Theatre of Dream.
