Benfica should respond well to loss at United
BT Sport Extra 5, 7.45pm Wednesday
Basel warmed up for the match with a 1-0 victory at home to Zurich but it was their first league win in five attempts.
Raphael Wicky's side have fallen six points adrift of leaders Young Boys in the Swiss title race and they barely laid a glove on Manchester United when sliding to a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford 15 days ago.
Basel are not without hope of finishing second in the group but they face a Benfica side determined to put their first points on the board.
The Portuguese have reached the knockout stages two seasons in a row and they look value to register their first win of the group.

The home side are sweating on the fitness of winger Mohamed Elyounoussi, who has missed the last two games through injury.
Lisandro Lopez is an injury doubt but Douglas and Eduardo Salvio remain sidelined.
Basel have not scored more than one goal in any of their last seven matches.
