FC Basel v Manchester United: Pick a Team Get a Price Boost from 888Sport

Manchester United are within a point of making it through to the knockout stages of the Champions League but it’s unlikely that any side led by Jose Mourinho will settle for a draw when they head to Switzerland on Wednesday. Waiting for United are FC Basel who retain qualification hopes of their own and it will be an interesting night from a betting point of view.

Manchester United are hot favourites for the three points on Wednesday but with this new customer promo from 888Sport, you can claim a serious price boost on either team to win it.

Either / Or

Under the terms of this offer, new account holders can claim either 9/1 on a Manchester United victory or, if you feel there is an upset on the cards, FC Basel are available at a mighty 25/1.

As a comparison, a regular 888 customer would currently get 19/20 on United while the best available price from around the sportsbooks comes in at 21/20 with BetFred. For Basel, the standard 888Sport price is 14/5 while you can improve on that slightly with 16/5 from MarathonBet.

Either of those enhanced odds figures could therefore be worth aiming for and here’s what you will need to do to take things further.

Sign Up

As a new customer to 888Sport you can head across via the link and register for a new account with just a few basic details. All you need to keep in mind is to type in the Promo Code 888ODDS when prompted to do so.

It’s fast, simple and safe to sign up here and within a couple of minutes or so you will be on board as a confirmed 888 account holder.

At this point, it’s time to make an initial deposit so, when you are taken to the cashier, fund your new account with at least £10.00 using a debit or credit card. The money should clear immediately and now it’s time to make your bet.


You can’t back both teams here so pick between FC Basel and Manchester United and stake up to a maximum of £5.00 on the chosen outcome. The game takes place in Switzerland this Wednesday, November 22, and if you are a winner you will be paid out in two distinct phases.

Initial profits at 888Sport’s relevant book price will be paid straight back to you as cash when the game ends while the remainder, up to whichever of those two enhanced odds figures is applicable, will be returned as free bet tokens within 72 hours.

Look out for those free bets as they must be used within 72 hours before they expire and while those are the main points of this deal, you are free to check all terms and conditions prior to going ahead.


United are a slight odds against with some bookies and they are away from home but their form is much better than that of their Swiss opponents. Mourinho’s men have won four of their last five games while Basel have won just two in that same period of time.

The Swiss have that home advantage however and have enjoyed a reasonable Champions League so far. The choice is ultimately yours but if you do call correctly, this new customer offer from 888Sport could seriously boost your profits.
