Referee: Massa D. (Ita)
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul)
Manchester United suffered a chastening night after conceding an embarrassing opening goal as they were humbled by Champions League rookies Istanbul Basaksehir.Basaksehir, formed only in 1990, claimed their maiden Turkish Super Lig title last season and had not scored a goal or claimed a point in their opening two games in the competition.
They could not have wished for an easier way to get off the mark as United's defence went missing, allowing former Chelsea and Newcastle striker Demba Ba to run clear from the halfway line and fire past Dean Henderson.
United's defensive efforts for the second goal were almost as bad, Deniz Turuc dispossessing Juan Mata and finding Edin Visca in acres of space in the box to smash home.The visitors were given hope when Anthony Martial headed in from a Luke Shaw cross two minutes before the interval, but they could not salvage a result in a shabby second half showing, Basaksehir picking up a famous victory.
Istanbul Başakşehir have suffered consecutive 2-0 defeats in their maiden UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage campaign, conceding all goals in just one half on both occasions. They’ve now failed to score in six of nine competitive games in 2020/21 (D1, L5), with all five defeats accompanied by a 2-0 scoreline.
That includes a third consecutive all-time UCL home loss (including qualification), suggesting home comforts may not be enough to correct their woes, particularly as they’ve won just one of three Süper Lig home fixtures this term (D1, L1) - all three of which saw the HT result replicated at the final whistle. Furthermore, Başakşehir have lost seven of ten UEFA fixtures (W2, D1) as an outsider at all venues since the start of 2019/20, failing to score in six of those defeats.
They will be vulnerable then against Manchester United, who have opened the scoring within 30 minutes in their last three UEFA encounters (W3). United also scored during both halves in their first two UCL group games, kicking off their UCL campaign with two victories for just the second time since Sir Alex Ferguson left.
United continue to produce some high-scoring affairs on the continental stage, with nine of their last 11 UEFA matches finishing with over 2.5 goals, and the second half the higher scoring half in six of those nine fixtures. That includes a 5-0 win over Leipzig in their last such fixture - United’s biggest UCL victory since November 2013.
Players to watch: With first-half goals in two of his previous three Süper Lig starts, İrfan Kahveci appears Başakşehir’s best chance of a positive start.
United penalty taker Bruno Fernandes has scored in eight of 11 UEFA starts since the beginning of 2019/20, grabbing the game’s opener in four of his last seven such appearances.
Hot stat: Thirteen of United’s last 16 competitive matches have featured a penalty (including extra time).
