Man City vs Basel: Champions League Round of 16 preview

Aggregate: Man City 4-0 Basel

Manchester City host Basel at the Etihad on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Campions League Round of 16 tie.

Pep Guardiola’s side got the job done in the first leg, beating Basel 4-0 in Switzerland. Ilkay Gundogan scored a brace, while Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva were also on the scoresheet.

Since the first leg, City have won three of their four matches and picked up the Carabao Cup trophy along the way.

Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game in City’s 1-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday. City need just four more wins to confirm the Premier League title.

Basel are on a terrible run

Basel find themselves in a torrid run of form, with four defeats in their last five matches. Raphael Wicky’s side have lost both of their matches since the first leg and have failed to score in any of their last three.

Basel were knocked out of the Swiss Cup by league leaders Young Boys in their last match which ended 2-0.

Their league match against Zurich on Saturday was postponed due to weather.
