Manchester United travel to Turkey to face Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday night in Group H of the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have made an excellent start to their European campaign with six points from their opening two games, and another victory would put qualification for the knockout stages within touching distance.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Manchester United Latest Odds

After a fine win at Paris Saint-Germain on matchday one and a 5-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig last week, it is unsurprising to find United priced at 2/5 (1.40) with bet365 for the win.

The Premier League side are set to be without Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Alex Telles for the trip to Turkey, which comes ahead of a big domestic game against Everton at the weekend.

Basaksehir, for their part, are likely to be without former Tottenham wideman Nacer Chadli, while midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu is a doubt.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Manchester United Preview

United have been considerably stronger on the road than they have been at Old Trafford this season, where they have lost three times in the Premier League already.

In fact, the Red Devils’ only defeat in their last 19 matches away from their own stadium came against Sevilla in the Europa League at a neutral venue, and so they will be confident of picking up another positive result here.

Their five away games in all competitions this term have seen United score 15 goals, and in the Champions League they have scored at least twice in four of their last six matches on the road. 

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Manchester United Tips and Predictions

Over 2.75 goals is priced at 43/50 (1.86) and looks like a strong option for this game as United’s matches this season have averaged 3.6 goals.

This selection returns a half-win if there are exactly three goals in the game, with the other half of the stake being refunded, and a full win if there are more than three.
