Istanbul Basaksehir vs Manchester United Team News
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.

Wins over both Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig — the latter in crushing fashion — catapulted the Reds to the top of their Champions League group and leave them firm favorites to reach the last sixteen. With PSG and Leipzig certain to take points off each other in the next two games, United could book their place in the knockouts in no time at all.

Sementara itu, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, dan Phil Jones yang mengalami cedera tidak akan terlibat dalam babak penyisihan grup Liga Champions setelah namanya dikeluarkan dari skuad yang disetorkan ke UEFA.
The Red Devils will welcome the midweek reprieve from their stuttering Premier League campaign with a trip across the continent. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men followed up an impressive 5-0 victory over RB Leipzig last time out in Group H with a disappointing defeat at the hands of domestic rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
