Basel 1 – Manchester United 0
Man United are still not through to the last 16 of the Champions League.
After four wins in Europe, United came unstuck at Basel on Wednesday.
The match was far from a classic, as Jose Mourinho’s charges struggled to impress in Switzerland.
And in the 89th minute, Michael Lang prodded home the only goal of the game to earn Basel a famous win over the Red Devils.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic subbed on again
For the second match in a row, Zlatan Ibrahimovic came on as a second half sub for Man United.
Much like as against Newcastle, the Swedish star was brought off the bench for the last 15 minutes of action.
Ibra replaced French international Anthony Martial.
But did that turn out to be a bad move by Mourinho?
Here comes Zlatan…
The lion takes to the field for Manchester United 😉

No need for Ibrahimović. No need to take Martial off. No idea why Fellaini started. Full-backs have been pathetic. Yeah, Mourinho can take the blame for this one.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes Champions League history
By simply walking on the pitch in Basel, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made Champions League history.
The 36-year-old striker has become the first player in the history of the competition to turn out for seven different sides.
Those teams are Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barça, Milan, PSG and Manchester United.
Zlatan had previously shared the record with Nicolas Anelka and Javier Saviola, who both played for six teams in the Champions League.
