Basel vs Man City

Manchester City come into this encounter riding high on form and confidence after a thrashing 5-1 victory over Leicester City which will give particularly Sergio Aguero a big boost ahead of this game. City overall have been in great form and know that this is the one competition where they haven’t performed well and will feel repreived to have a good draw coming into this knockout stages. City have been undefeated in 6 straight games and only lost 2 games all season in competitive football which will give Guardiola particular confidence that he can go out and beat the Swiss champions. City had scored 13 goals in 5 games leading up to that final game which they didn’t bother to win; and they are the heavy favorites to win.

Basel just resumed their competitive football after their winter break last weekend and they lost 1-0 to Lugano while beating Thun 2-0 this past weekend to give them some reasonable confidence ahead of this game. Basel will look to some key players van Wolfswinkel, Elyounoussi, Oberlin and Ajeti who have been scoring well for them this season to help deliver a strong performance. Basel will also look to their matchups in the group stage at home where they beat Man United and Benfica while losing a narrow 2-1 loss to CSKA Moscow.
This game should see a lot of action with Man City looking to seal up this game at the earliest ahead of some critical games including the FA Cup quarter final and League Cup final to play in. This match should also see a lot of goals; so I am backing Over 2.5 Goals & Man City to win.

Bet : Man City WIN & Over 2.5 Match Goals
