Man Utd

Manchester United face a brutal 3,400 mile round-trip for a clash with Turkish side Istanbul Besaksehir in the third round of Champions League fixtures this week.


United have been a revelation so far in the continental competition, excelling in what was dubbed the ‘Group of Death’ prior to the start of the tournament.

A fantastic win over French giants PSG was followed by an RB Leipzig drubbing as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side hit the Germans for five.

The Turkish side have found it difficult to make their mark thus far but will be eyeing out a major scalp when they play host to the English side.

United will be hoping to put an insipid 0-1 loss to Arsenal behind them by continuing their electric European form.
