United are boosted by the returns of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, with both appearing in the resounding 4-1 win over Newcastle at the weekend.
The Red Devils have enjoyed a fine European campaign without the Swede, however, collecting 12 points from a possible 12.
Just one win will see them through to the last 16, and their form thus far suggests that they will secure safe passage to the knockout stages.
Basel, meanwhile, are second in Group A but they sit level on points with CSKA Moscow. The Swiss side hold the head-to-head advantage over CSKA, however, and must merely match their results to qualify for the knockout stages.
