Istanbul Basaksehir vs Manchester United prediction

Istanbul Basaksehir is at the bottom of their UEFA Champions League group, having lost both of their matches so far. They will be the losers against the Red Devils, and much will depend on the form of French forward Enzo Crivelli and veteran winger Edin Visca.


Manchester United, on the other hand, have endured contrasting streaks in the Premier League and the Champions League. He sits at the top of his group in the Champions League, having deservedly won against Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, with attacker Marcus Rashford impressed in particular.


Manchester United are not off to a good start to their league campaign, but they should be of sufficient quality to secure a win over Istanbul Basaksehir.


Prediction: Istanbul Basaksehir 0-2 Manchester United
