English champions Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday night after losing 2 - 1 to Swiss minnows Basel. United only needed a draw to progress but must now play in the second-tier Europa League.

AP - Three-time European champion Manchester United went out of the Champions League on Wednesday after a 2-1 loss to FC Basel.

United needed just a draw to advance from its group to the knockout rounds but Basel captain Marco Streller scored in the ninth minute and Alex Frei struck in the 84th.

Despite Phil Jones’s scrambled goal in the 89th, United slumped to only its second group-stage exit since 1996.

Basel joins group winner Benfica among Europe’s elite in the last-16 draw next week.
United, a winner and twice runner-up in the past four seasons, finished third in the group. It must now play in the second-tier Europa League next February.
