Manchester United will look to put their Premier League woes behind them and continue their unbeaten run in the UEFA Champions League when they face Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir at the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu on Wednesday.
Despite struggling in the bottom half of the table in the Premier League, United have been impeccable in Europe and currently lead the UCL Group H with six points from two matches on the back of two very impressive wins over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.
A win over Istanbul will put Man United on nine points and get them on the threshold of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League knockouts. Watch Istanbul Basaksehir vs Man United live streaming in India.
Anthony Martial, who who missed the Red Devils' painful 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend due to a domestic suspension, will be back for the European tie. The Frenchman's return will be a big boost for Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, will have some big decisions to make about his team selection after the midfield of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Fred and Scott McTominay failed to impress against Arsenal. Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata may be in line to start in Turkey.
Barcelona vs Dynamo Kyiv at the Camp Nou on Thursday, meanwhile, was thrown in doubt after nine Dynamo Kyiv players tested positive for COVID-19, while three were injured and one was suspended.
With only a 13 man-squad travelling for Spain, one more withdrawal will mean the match being postponed, according to UEFA rules.
However, as per last reports, the entire squad has tested negative and the match is expected to go ahead if the situation remains the same.
Lionel Messi's Barcelona currently lead Group G of the UCL with two wins in two while Kyiv are third with a single point from their two outings
The other high-profile clash midweek in the UEFA Champions League pits RB Leipzig against French champions PSG in what will be a repeat of last season’s semi-final.
PSG beat Leipzig on that occasion to make their first UCL final and the young German team, reeling from a 5-0 loss to Manchester United last week will want to gain their confidence back.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned to action with two goals over the weekend, accompanies the Juventus team to Hungary to take on Ferencvaros.
