CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NOVEMBER 21, 2017: FC BASEL 1 MANCHESTER UNITED 0
FC Basel 1893 defeated Manchester United FC.
After the English had been the dominant team in the first half and had two shots hit the woodwork, the Basler came into the game more after the break and were also denied the frame of the goal.
Michael Lang was the unlucky one to plant a header on the crossbar.
However, in the 89th minute Lang was in the right place and shot the FCB to this important and ultimately not unmerited victory.
It was Manchester United's first point loss in the current UEFA Champions League. Despite the victory of PFK CSKA Moscow against SL Benfica (2: 0) FCB defended second place in Group A.
FCB: Vaclik; Akanji, Suchy, Balanta; Lang, Serey Die (80th Fransson), Zuffi, Petretta; Steffen, Oberlin, Elyounoussi.
Manchester United: Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Fellaini, Ander Herrera; Lingard (64th Rashford), Pogba (65th Matic), Martial (74th Ibrahimovic); Lukaku.
