In all competitions, Manchester United suffered a second defeat in a row as they fell to a 2-1 loss to Istanbul Basaksehir.

As they lost 2-1 to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Wednesday, Manchester United saw their 18-match unbeaten away streak come to an end.

Instead, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watched his side fall behind a Demba Ba goal in Istanbul that came after the veteran striker was granted the United Half freedom to run forward and score, looking for an answer to Sunday’s Premier League loss at home to Arsenal.

Edin Visca made it 2-0 from more haphazard defending, doubling in this competition the tally of goals scored by Basaksehir.

Anthony Martial headed in an answer, but in the second half, as their 100 percent start to the group stage ended, the visitors gave scant real hazard.

When a long Visca clearance allowed Ba to move unchallenged into the visitors’ half and slot past Dean Henderson, who was making his Champions League debut, United started strongly but fell behind.

As United struggled to pick their way through, the hosts were just too content to sit back, and they pounced on an opportunity to make it 2-0. Deniz Turuc robbed Juan Mata of possession, drilled the ball across the box and Visca blasted past Henderson after Ba let it run into space.

This time, United replied swiftly, Luke Shaw’s cross picking out Martial to direct a header with his side’s first attempt on goal beyond the scope of Fehmi Mert Gunok.

With a free-kick, Bruno Fernandes tested Gunok, but United still worked to break down the Basaksehir backline, leading Solskjaer to add from the bench Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba.

Mason Greenwood soon followed, but none could break the Turkish champions, who, thanks largely to Alexandru Epureanu hooking a loose ball off the line in injury time, had reignited their chances of advancing from Group H.
