Manchester United v Basel preview: Marouane Fellaini doubtful for hosts

Manchester United v Basel preview: Marouane Fellaini doubtful for hosts

Bailly is continuing his suspension after a red card in the Europa League semifinal, and Jones will serve his after verbally abusing the match official in the final.

Taulant Xhaka, brother of Granit who plays for Arsenal, has adequate experience in Europe, with Switzerland's biggest club having played in the competition previous year - with one assist to his name in 6 starts.

"I know that I am in the top five or six".

Jose Mourinho has admitted Manchester United are not yet in the same realm as Europe's elite after 644 days away from the Champions League.

Despite finishing in sixth place in the Premier League last season, they won the Europa League to secure a spot in the prestigious tournament. He needs a bit of time for the Premier League, but step by step he'll get there.

"When you look at the players we had like Morata and Mariano and you look now and there is only Mayoral, you could think we lack a number nine", admitted Zidane.

"But now we're back and we're motivated to win Champions League games and to bring the Champions League back to Old Trafford for the fans".

United have hosted Basel twice at Old Trafford, yet have failed to beat them on either occasion.

He raced down the touchline, coattails flapping behind him, when Costinha's late goal took Porto through at United's expense, before witheringly proclaiming that Ferguson's side "should be doing a lot better". Yet, there are matches where Mourinho could tinker more. They have been very impressive up to now and look primed for a huge season both domestically and in the Champions League.

"It is just normal", Mourinho added.

United are unbeaten in 18 European home games (W14 D4), going back to a 2-1 home loss to Real Madrid in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg.

Mourinho, 54, dreams of becoming only the third manager to win three European Cups, after Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti, and the first to do so with three different clubs.

Qarabag are the first Azerbaijani team to make it to the group stages and their reward was one of the most competitive groups. Furthermore, this side was beaten at home in their last game in the Swiss Super League meaning that they are a full three points of the league leaders.

"We have a group now and people say it is an easy one for us in the Champions League".

- Real Madrid and APOEL Nicosia's only previous encounter was in the quarter-finals of the 2011-12 Champions League.

Zlatan has just re-signed with the club and there are reports that he could end his career at Old Trafford and get into management. Atletico Madrid have a track record of reaching the semis.
