MUN Vs IBKS Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Manchester United look to redeem their shocking defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir the last time these two locked heads.
Without a win in their opening couple of matches and sitting without a goal in the bottom of Group H, not even the most rapturous of supporters gave Istanbul Basaksehir a chance when Manchester United came calling. This was a contest many had written off, one set to see the club be relegated to yet another defeat.
However, Istanbul Basaksehir had different plans on the day. The club decided that they would not be exiting the marquee Champions League without leaving behind something to remember them by as the club sent ripples across Group H with an unprecedented.
Not only did they defeat Manchester United 2-1 on the day but were all over their opponents in the first half. The win not only saw Istanbul Basaksehir register their first win of the season but also thrown the group wide open with three clubs in with a shot of making it into the next round.
MUN Vs IBKS Fantasy Probable Winner
Despite the defeat, Manchester United’s previous two wins on the bounce continue to see them be in charge of the group. And the club will further strengthen that spot with a win when these two meet for the second time in as many weeks.

Walking away with a win the last time these two met each other, Mert Gunok had an integral part to play in his side’s triumph. As Manchester United threw the kitchen sink and more at him, he was asked to parry away a string of shots, a task which least fazed him.
They were shambolic at the back the last time these two faced off but we envision Manchester United dishing out a massively improved performance come today. They are up against an Istanbul Basaksehir side which has gone goalless in two of its three outings in the league, a side Manchester United should have little qualms in quashing.
We’ll be opting for Manchester United’s entire backline for the encounter with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Alex Telles, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire being instilled in our team.
Scoring another penalty for Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes saw that goal end up as the deciding strike in the side’s 1-0 win against West Brom. Istanbul Basaksehir meanwhile see us indulge in the services of Deniz Turuc after his assist the last time these two met each other with CDM Berkay Ozcan linking up with him.
For all his problems this season, Anthony Martial has managed to find some kind of solace in the Champions League where he’s struck two goals. Marcus Rashford emerges as the side’s top scorer with his four goals to see the two partner up for the showdown.
His match winning goal and assist in the two sides’ foregone showdown sees Edin Visca wrap up our team for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The one goal Fernandes has sees him captain our team while Rashford is the vice-captain.
Gunok, Maguire, Aaron, Victor, Alex, Bruno, Turuc, Ozcan, Rashford, Martial, Visca
