UEFA Champions League
Basel vs Manchester City
Pick: Manchester City to win and over 1.5 goals
ANALYSIS AND MATCH PREVIEW
Basel impressed in the group stage of the Champions League as they finished second in the group behind Manchester United and above Champions League regulars Benfica and CSKA Moscow.
In the return of Swiss league earlier this month, Basel lost 1-0 at home to Lugan, seeing their two-point distance to leaders Young Boys go to five points. They did bounce back last weekend, beating Thun 2-0 away from home,
The Swiss enjoyed some success against English clubs at home in recent years. They bagged a surprise 1-0 win against Manchester United in the group stages.
Manchester City qualified from their group with ease by winning their first five games. They did lose to Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday six, but they travelled to Ukraine with a fringe squad then as their top place finish has been confirmed.
Manchester City are making their fifth appearance at the round of 16. They had lost in 3 of the previous four occasions. The exception was the semifinal appearance in 2015/16, a run halted by eventual title winners Real Madrid.
The citizens have almost wrap up the Premier league title. They thrashed Leicester City 5-1, with Aguero scoring four goals, De Bruyne providing three assists, and generally looking awesome. The win extend their lead to 18 points as their closest rival drop points again.
Considering the quality difference between both sides, Manchester City to win should come as a banker, but the odds in the region of 1.35 offer us little value for return. For more value, Manchester city have been exceptional in front of goal this season so we can be confident they will score at least twice which should be enough to bag the win. Therefore Manchester City win and over 1.5 goals is the best approach here.
