UEFA Champions League: Wednesday's Previews

Manchester United and Manchester City will learn their UEFA Champions League fates on Wednesday evening. In Group C, United travel to Basel knowing defeat would send them crashing out at this stage for the first time since 2005. However, victory could yet see Sir Alex Ferguson's men finish top of the pile, but that would need Benfica to slip up against pointless Galati. City's task in Group A is even more daunting as they stand on the brink of going into the Europa League. Bayern Munich, who have already won the group, travel to the Etihad Stadium to face City and have already confirmed that a number of key players will not feature. But even if City do manage to beat the German giants, they will also be looking to the group's whipping boys Villarreal to record an unlikely victory or draw with Napoli at El Madrigal to prevent the Italians from beating them to second spot.
