Turkey's Besiktas to play against England's Manchester United

Turkey's defending champions Besiktas will begin their Champions League journey with an home match against England's Manchester United on Tuesday.

Besiktas will face last season's beaten finalists at Istanbul's Inonu Stadium for UEFA Champions League Group B opener.

Other teams in the group are Germany's Wolfsburg and Russia's CSKA Moscow.

Besiktas hope to make a good start to the tournament as they have not been able to make it to the next round in their previous four attempts in Champions League.

However, the English titleholders have not lost an away game in the UEFA Champions League since May 2, 2007.

Tuesday's match will kick off at 9:45 p.m. local time at Istanbul's Inonu Stadium. Italia's Nicola Rizzoli will officiate the match.
