  • Goal

    A. Frei (Basel) scores!

  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    The stats show a pretty even game, United with 55% of possession and eight attempts to Basel's seven. But it has been the home side's finishing which has proven the difference. Basel could well be level if they'd brought their shooting boots.

    Welbeck (Man. United) has an effort on goal.

  • 24
    A. Frei (Basel) misses the target.
    Basel really should have pulled one back. Marco Streller has looked excellent when on the ball and he plays in Alexander Frei in a great position in the box but his strike partner shoots wide. An excellent chance to level.

    A. Frei (Basel) misses the target.
  • Goal
    17

    Ryan Giggs sets up another in the space of minutes, guiding a ball from the left through the back four to a waiting Welbeck who has the simple task of finishing at the back post.
  • Goal
    16
    Welbeck (Man. United) scores!
