Manchester United hosts FC Basel in the second match of the Champions League group stages today.  Despite their blistering form to start the campaign, United have drawn their last match in both the Champions League and domestically.  In addition, Sir Alex Ferguson is dealing with numerous injury issues heading into this match, including a hamstring concern for Wayne Rooney.  As many as 8 regulars will be out of action for today's tie, which should make the match more intriguing than it initially looked on paper.

Kickoff is 2:45 ET on Fox Soccer Channel.
