Manchester United vs İstanbul Basaksehir FK Betting Tips
There seemed to be a notion that Istanbul Basaksehir would be the whipping boys of Champions League Group H after losing their opening two matches against RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Okan Buruk’s side did win the Turkish Super Lig last season and illustrated their credentials with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United before the lockdown, with Demba Ba and Edin Višća scoring first-half goals against a Red Devils side who made sloppy defensive errors.
Can Basaksehir Claim a Champions League Double Over United?
Basaksehir are now back in the mix when it comes to Group H and they won’t have too many fears going to Old Trafford considering that Manchester United have been distinctly ropey at their own stadium in the Premier League.
The Red Devils’ 5-0 win over RB Leipzig is starting to look increasingly freakish considering that Crystal Palace, Spurs and Arsenal have all claimed domestic victories away to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and the visitors will surely look to keep things tight.
Our tip is that if the Istanbul side do lose the game, it might only be by a single goal and that is why we’re siding with them on the Asian Handicap with a +1.5 goal advantage, meaning that they would have to lose by two goals or more in order to not win with this bet.
Will Solskjaer Still Be Manchester United Manager for This Game?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be nearing the end of his time at Old Trafford although we’ve heard it before when it comes to the Norwegian being close to the sack and we won’t be betting on him to be out of a job any time soon.
Even so, our prediction is that United could make heavy weather of a game that they’re expected to win and don’t see things going the same way as they did against Leipzig when it was cruise control as soon as the first goal went in.
