Basaksehir Stun Poor Manchester United

Manchester United suffered a chastening night after conceding an embarrassing opening goal as they were humbled by Champions League rookies Istanbul Basaksehir.

Basaksehir, formed only in 1990, claimed their maiden Turkish Super Lig title last season and had not scored a goal or claimed a point in their opening two games in the competition.

They could not have wished for an easier way to get off the mark as United’s defence went missing, allowing former Chelsea and Newcastle striker Demba Ba to run clear from the halfway line and fire past Dean Henderson.

United’s defensive efforts for the second goal were almost as bad, Deniz Turuc dispossessing Juan Mata and finding Edin Visca in acres of space in the box to smash home.

The visitors were given hope when Anthony Martial headed in from a Luke Shaw cross two minutes before the interval, but they could not salvage a result in a shabby second half showing picking up a famous victory.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggled to find any positives after Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Red Devils were punished for some sloppy defending and never looked like dominating the game in the Turkish capital.

“The performance wasn’t good enough against a team that worked and ran and hit us on the break,” said Solskjaer. “They scored two goals that teams do when you don’t defend well.

“We played a short corner and forgot about the man up front and that’s unforgivable. Two soft goals. And then we didn’t have enough to come back in the second half. We threw everything at it but couldn’t break them down.

“We were not good enough. That’s it. It’s not easy to be positive when we’ve lost the way we have but these players are good players and we have a chance on Saturday to get going again.” (BBC/Tribal Football)
