Manchester United were denied passage into the Champions League knockout phase as Michael Lang’s 89th-minute strike snatched a dramatic 1-0 victory for Basel at St. Jakob-Park.

United needed to avoid defeat to reach the last 16 and looked well on course to do that after creating a host of chances in a dominant first-half display.

But Jose Mourinho’s men were made to pay for their wastefulness as a spirited second-half display from Basel culminated in Lang converting the winner in the final minute.

The defeat leaves United needing a result in their final group stage match against CSKA Moscow to qualify, while Basel head to Benfica looking to seal their own progression.

What’s next?
