PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP!

BASEL 1 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED

THE SWISS TEAM PULL OFF A SHOCK WIN AS MANCHESTER UNITED ARE STILL NOT ASSURED OF PROGRESS IN THE GROUP THEY WERE STROLLING THROUGH TILL NOW... THE SWISS SIDE ARE IN THE DRIVING SEAT AT THE MOMENT WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR ONE-ON-ONE WITH CSKA MOSCOW

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon. Thank you for reading

'twas a pleasure

Toodle-ooo!
...
92' Blind clips in a ridiculous ball that Suchy clears with absurd ease, before Lukaku forces Akanji to give away a corner... Blind will take it
...
90' A lovely ball from Darmian - no, really - is send over the bar by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.... there's going to be 3 minutes added on, by the by
...
WAHAHA! What a shock for United - Steffen does superbly to draw United to one side before he switches play out wide to Petretta - whose ball into the box finds his opposite wingback and Michael Lang caps a fine performance with a goal of his own. 
...
89' GOOOOOOOOOAL! MICHAEL LANG!
...
88' OH! Zlatan and Lukaku play a bit of head tennis before the big Swede smashes a powerful shot into row Z 
...
87' Oh no, Lukaku has gone down clutching his face - but it looks like its due to Suchy's arm striking his face, and he should be getting back up right pronto
...
85' Fellaini sees this off yet again before Nemanja Matic shepherds Elyounoussi - who in turn runs into the Serb's elbow - another decision that could have gone either way goes United's way
...
84' Basel are clambering all over United here - first they overwhelm Matic and the Serb gives away possession with a weak ball, Darmian attempts to win it back - he has no choice but to go for it - but fails and it's another freekick for Zuffi to swing in. 
...
83' OOO A couple of spicy tackles in the middle of the field is accentuated by Darmian picking up a yellow for an incredibly poor challenge on Petretta near the United box. 
...
81' Nothing is happening. NOTHING  
...
79' Fransson will replace Serey Die, who departs to a standing ovation - the Ivorian left everything out there tonight and his congregation certainly loved every bit of it. 
...
78' The corner is cleared once again by Fellaini - who has been rather god tonight, truth  be told - but it's all Basel now... till Serey Die falls down clutching his hamstring once again. 
...
77' OOOO! Serey Die puts his body and soul into thundering a piledriver at Romero, but apart from a pulled muscle and a corner he seems to have gained nothing... oh, a bit of a magic spray and Die looks like he'll be goof to continue. 
...
76' OOOO! Matic picks out Lukaku with a dink down the middle, the Belgian then tries to combine with Ibra but the final touches are disappointing as the ball wriggles away from Ibrahimovic and into Vaclik's hands
...
74' Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes his Champions League debut for Manchester United as he replaces Anthony Martial. United seem to have gone to 4-3-3 with Lukaku out wide on the right
...
73' United punch it clear and Martial does ever so well to hold it up while waves of grey join him... it all ends with Rashford pumping a hopeless shot into the side netting 
...
72' WHAT A TACKLE ROJO! Peretta plays in Oberlin with a lovely, lovely ball after a flowing Basel move - but Rojo flies across the box and get his leg in the way of the striker's shot. 
...
71' United are under the cosh here, and they are struggling to keep a rampant Basel at bay!
...
70' OH MY! OH MY! CONTROVERSY AS STEFFEN FALLS OVER ROJO'S LEG INSIDE THE UNITED BOX... and a call that could have gone either way sees the ref wave play on!
...
69' Martial screams forward in typical fashion before trying to play in Blind - but the Dutchman simply doesn't see that coming and the move breaks down. Blind has been poor toaday
...
67' Basel are gaining much joy down United's left flank - Elyounoussi initially curls a dangerous ball across the face of United's goal before Steffan's delectable ball back into the box from the opposite flank is thudded onto the crossbar from five yards away by Michael Lang!
...
66' Haha, aiyyo, aiyyo. Fellaini lays the ball off to Lukaku who attempts an overhead kick of sorts - but it's about as graceful as a falling giraffe and about as useful 
...
65' Paul Pogba's not being pushed too hard and he's taken off for the Serbian steel of Nemanja Matic. 
...
64' Rashford is brought on for the disappointing Lingard... while on the pitch, Pogba sends a low heatseeker toward Vaclik's goal but the goalkeeper is more than equal to the task.
