Manchester United are hosting Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

United sit top of group H with six points from their opening three games, level with Bundesliga club RB Leipzig who also have two wins from their opening three games.

Istanbul were expected to struggle in the group but their surprise victory over United in Turkey has given them hope of staying in Europe, and they have three points, just like PSG.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says United need “at least 10 points” to qualify for the last 16, so with tougher tests to come this is a crucial fixture to win.
