Champions League, Man United vs Basaksehir: Preview, Dream11 and stats
Manchester United take on Istanbul Basaksehir in matchday four of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21 season.
After getting off to a strong start in Group H, United were stunned by the Turkish side away from home in the previous matchday.
Meanwhile, PSG host RB Leipzig in another crucial game in this group.
Here is the complete preview.
United will want to step up against Basaksehir
United's shabby defending against the Turkish side saw the former concede all three points.
This time though, United need to step up and be compact at the back.
A win for United will put them on the driver's seat in terms of qualification for the round of 16.
Meanwhile, Basaksehir will want to complete the double over United and enhance their chances.
Team news and selection
For United, the likes of Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Luke Shaw remain out. However, they could welcome Paul Pogba back into the squad. The mid-fielder had missed the weekend's Premier League tie against West Brom.
