The Reds Strong Favourites To Win
Manchester United prepare to take on Swiss club FC Basel at Old Trafford in the UEFA Champions League this upcoming Tuesday evening. According to Sir Alex Ferguson, the UEFA Champions League is the best competition in the world now and the success hungry Manchester United boss hopes that The Reds can go one better this campaign and win it after two Champions League final defeats in four seasons.
Manchester United will miss Jonny Evans, Javier Hernandez, Tom Cleverley, Wayne Rooney, Rafael da Silva, Chris Smalling and Nemanja Vidic, while the St Jacob Park outfit will be without Benjamin Huggel, Valentin Stocker, Gilles Yapi, Genseric Kusunga and Xherdan Shaqiri. Although reigning champions Manchester United ended a highly impressive run of five successive victories in the league at Stoke City last Saturday, Sir Alex Ferguson men are firm favourites to beat Thorsten Fink´s FC Basel side.
