BETTING PREVIEW: ISTANBUL BASAKSEHIR vs MAN UNITED

Manchester United will be hoping their Champions League form continues in their first ever encounter against Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Red Devils lost to Arsenal on the weekend at Old Trafford and now head to Turkey with plenty of speculation over the futures of a number of leading figures.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job remains under scrutiny while Paul Pogba is among the big name players to have been called out for poor league form.

In Europe though, Manchester United are 2-2 in a difficult group which has already yielded wins over PSG and RB Leipzig; last season’s beaten finalists and semi-finalists.

Istanbul Basaksehir are looking to avoid a third successive 2-0 defeat.

The hosts own league form has been dubious but three big wins – Trabzonspor, Antalyaspor and Konyaspor – have seen them rise to seventh.

Their main threat appears to be Bosnia international Edin Visca, who has plied his trade for the club since 2011. The attacking midfielder has provided the most assists in the Turkish Super Lig for three seasons running and scored a career-high 19 goals in all competitions last season, as his side became only the sixth different side to claim the top-flight title since the league’s inception in the 1950s.

Suggested bet: Over 2.5 match goals at 1.7
