FC Basel v Man City Team News

The hosts were one of the surprise packages of the group stage progressing at the expense of Benfica and CSKA Moscow to book their place in the knock-out round. Their reward for their efforts was to draw one of the most dangerous teams in world football in the first knockout round, and not many will be expecting them to cause an upset against Manchester City.

Basel won eight games in a row before the Swiss Super League broke up for winter, and their winning streak ended in their first game back when they lost 1-0 at home to Lugano. They got back to winning ways on Saturday, however, as Dimitri Oberlin and Kevin Bua netted in a 2-0 win at Thun.

The Swiss side have actually won nine of their last ten competitive games, including a shock 1-0 win at home to Manchester United and a 2-0 win way to Benfica. St.Jakob Park has been a happy hunting ground for Basel and they won’t let City walk all over them.

Manchester City are a force to be reckoned with, and they showed that again on Saturday as they hammered Leicester 5-1. That win at home to the Foxes makes it six games unbeaten for The Citizens, with their only failure during this period coming in a draw with Burnley last weekend.

Like all other challenges set before them this season, Pep Guardiola's City breezed through the Champions League Group Stage, only dropping points on the final day - losing away to Shakhtar Donetsk - as they had already qualified group winners. With the Premiership title seemingly locked up already, success in the CL is the next big goal for the Citizens.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

FC Basel (4-2-3-1): Vaclik; Petretta, Balanta, Suchy, Lang; Die, Xhaka; Bua, Elyounoussi, Stocker; Oberlin.

Man City (4-3-3): Ederson; Danilo, Kompany, Stones, Walker; Silva, Fernandinho, Bruyne; Sterling, Aguero, Silva.

Injured or Suspended Players:

FC Basel: Germano Vailati, Luca Zuffi.

Man City: Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane.

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

Despite being an incredible attacking force, Man City aren't still flawless away from home defensively, conceding in nine of their last 14 away games, whilst Basel boast a good record against English opposition, but their solid defensive record will be put to the test by Manchester City's free-scoring attack on Tuesday.
