Not looking forward to giving a match prediction on Man Utd Vs Istanbul Basaksehir (24/11/20), the Red Devils should win, but as we've seen of late, nothing is certain with Ole's team.
Man Utd V Istanbul Basaksehir Preview
I'm really at a loss as to just what to do make of Man Utd. I think the simple facts are, they're just not good enough.
Yes, they can raise their game when they need to, and compete with anybody. But they just can't do the bread and butter things.
United are currently too unpredictable
They seem incapable of just completing a routine victory. The sort of home win over a struggling side that would have been a forgone conclusion under Alex Ferguson.

Could anybody really be backing Man Utd to win at odds of 1/4? On current form!
It should be a formality against Istanbul Basaksehir, but as we seen in Istanbul 3 weeks ago, anything can happen with United.
Prior to that awful night for United, the Champions League had provided some welcome relief from their Premier League struggles.
Solskjaer's team won their previous two Champions League fixtures. First beat PSG 2-1 in Paris, before thrashing RB Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford on MatchDay 2.
Man Utd Vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction 24/11/20
And it's MatchDay 2 that I'm basing my prediction on today for this one - as going on current form is pointless.
I believe United are going to hand out someone a hiding soon, similar to the Leipzig result.
So I'm hoping - rather than expecting - that this happens tonight, and I'm going to again back United to win on the Handicap.
The Red Devils are 8/11 at -1 on the Handicap, and 15/8 at -2.
Although I believe -2 could come in (surely 3-0 isn't beyond United tonight), I'm going to play safe and stick with -1.
