Basaksehir has yet to gain a single point from two Champions League matches and while they are sure to be in this big game, they lack quality compared to their opponents. United will be looking to cope with their disappointing defeat to Arsenal and this seems like the ideal kind of fixture to regain momentum ahead of their difficult away trip against Everton.

Istanbul Basaksehir entered this match after a 2-1 win over Konyaspor at Super Lig on Sunday. An own goal from Serbian international Marko Jevtovic and a goal from striker Danijel Aleksic ensured victory for the defending champions Super Lig and Ukrainian striker Artem Kravets scored the only goal for Konyaspor. . Istanbul Basaksehir manager Okan Buruk will not be able to serve Brazilian full-back Junior Caicara, who was injured. There are still doubts about the availability of the Belgian and former Tottenham Hotspur attacker Nacer Chadli, as well as Nigerian midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu. Istanbul Basaksehir are bottom of their UEFA Champions League group. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted after Sunday's defeat that his side had simply failed, with a deserved victory thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty, this statement also generated anger for fans about the team's ambitions. 7 points in six opening games is United's worst return at this stage of the campaign since David Moyes's brief stint in power in 2013-14. There is no doubt that a current response is needed midweek, putting some unnecessary pressure on this trip to Fatih Terim Stadium. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer teachers and students received their third defeat in the Premier League season so far. Meanwhile, Manchester United will not have England player - Jesse Lingard as well as midfielder Eric Bailly, both of whom are recovering.
