BT Sport Extra, 7.45pm Tuesday

Basel have climbed to second place in Group A after successive victories and can seal likely qualification for the knockout stages by beating CSKA Moscow at St Jakob-Park.

The Swiss will advance to the last 16 if they defeat CSKA and Manchester United avoid defeat at home to Benfica.

They were much the better side when defeating CSKA 2-0 in Moscow and they accomplished the task without star striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, who was ruled out with an injury.

Van Wolfswinkel remains absent but Basel have found another source of goals with Swiss Under-21 international Dimitri Oberlin scoring three times in the last two Champions League matches.

Basel are unbeaten in their last eight games and can deliver the killer blow to CSKA, who failed to muster a shot on target on matchday three.
