Late Lang goal helped Basel beat Man United 

Michael Lang scored a late winner to give Basel a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

Manchester United passed up the opportunity to secure progression to the Champions League knockout phase, as Michael Lang's late goal sealed a 1-0 victory for Basel.

The Red Devils needed a point to go through the knockout phase. They were  dominant  in the first half but Basel rallied brilliantly after the break and scored a deserved winner right at the end.

Man United  were left frustrated, with Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial, Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo all going close – with Fellaini and Rojo being denied by the post and crossbar respectively.

Lang decisively found the back of the net in the 89th minute, moving them above CSKA Moscow due to a better head-to-head record.

United still need a point against the CSKA Moscow to ensure progression into the last 16.
