Manchester United virtually assured their passage into the last 16 of the Champions League as group winners. United beat Benfica 2-0 at Old Trafford to make it four wins out of four in the group stage.
Manchester United played their first Champions League match in almost two years on Tuesday night, when Swiss champions Basel visited Old Trafford.
The Reds were without the suspended Eric Bailly and Phil Jones for their first Group A match. Chris Smalling and new signing Victor Lindelof came into replace them.
Basel travelled to Old Trafford off the back of a disappointing Swiss Super League loss to bottom club Lausanne. Despite top scorer Ricky van Wolswinkel, formerly of Norwich City, scoring a penalty, the Dutchman could not prevent Basel’s second league defeat of the season.
