Video Highlights: Man Utd 3-3 Basel – Late Young Strike Saves Red Devils

By on September 28, 2011

What an unusual game. Manchester United rarely lose a two goal lead, but a mixture of complacency, poor defending and all round sloppy play led to an almighty scare in their second Champions League group game against FC Basel.

Danny Welbeck fired United ahead with a pair of goals within just two minutes, and Sir Alex Ferguson’s side were lucky to still have that lead in tact at half time with the amount of chances the Swiss side created. However, the luck soon ran out, with Basel’s persistence finally paying off with three goals in relatively quick succession, including a penalty conceded by Antonio Valencia.

Nani came on and provided a beautiful cross to assist Ashley Young in heading into the bottom corner to save a point. Manchester United are third in their group with two points, with only FC Otelul Gatali who are yet to record a point.
