Manchester United 19/20 to beat Basel in Wednesday’s Champions League encounter

Competition: Champions League

Market: Manchester United to beat Basel

Odds: 19/20 @ Bet365

The Champions League continues this week with the fifth round of the competition. While there are some sides that have already been knocked out of the competition, most teams are still in with a chance of going through to the knock-out stages of the competition, meaning three points in their fifth game could be massive. With this in mind, Manchester United travel to face Basel on Wednesday evening.

Basel have been fairly good in their Champions League campaign this season. After four games they have six points from their two wins and two defeats. Eight goals scored is a fairly decent return, but conceding five goals is hardly the most impressive record. With CSKA Moscow also on six points, Basel need to win this game, or they could give themselves a mountain to climb in their final game.

Manchester United have been superb this campaign and they fully deserve their lead at the top of the table. After four games they are perfect, with four wins in a row. 10 goals scored shows that they are very good going forward, while they have only conceded once, which displays that they are not a side that is overly dependent on either facet of the game. A draw this evening would guarantee them top spot in the group, and Jose Mourinho’s men will be going all out to win this one, so we are backing the away side to win with odds of 19/20.
