Manchester City vs Basel : Preview & Tips


Match : Manchester City vs Basel

Competition : Champions League

Time / Date : 21:45h / 7 March 2018

Venue : Etihad Stadium

Manchester City

Manchester City already have one foot in the quarter-finals after a resounding 4-0 win in Switzerland in the first leg. They’ve won their last three matches and should have no problem in defeating FC Basel here.


FC Basel have lost their two matches since succumbing to a first leg loss to Manchester City with the other two games postponed. They should be well rested coming into this one, but face a nigh-on impossible task of overturning a four-goal deficit.
