Manchester City – Basel
Manchester City welcomes Basel at the Etihad Stadium in a second leg from the 1/8-finals of the Champions League. After a 4-0 win for City in the first game, there ain’t much to be said about this match in Manchester. But here are our vip soccer bets for this clash.
Manchester City are arguably one of the major contenders for the trophy this season. Pep Guardiola’s team is playing like a machine since the beginning of the campaign. The Citizens are really close to win the Premier League in a spectacular fashion. They are dominating the league, having conceded just one loss so far.
In the Champions League Manchester City are also very convincing. They won their group without any problems and continued to dominate in the knockout phase as well. Guardiola’s boys didn’t leave any chances to Basel in the first leg, scoring four goals in the Swiss team’s net. And now they will try to finish the job.
Every game is a chance for Manchester City to make a statement about their class and this one is not an exception. It’d be curious to see how Josep Guardiola will build his starting line-up. Because of the result in the first game, we shall expect to see some changes in Manchester City’s starting eleven. Some key players could get a well needed rest, because the season is long. And some of the players who feature more rarely should get a chance to shine.
For Basel it’s a matter of honour to perform better than they did in the first leg. They are the most successful Swiss club of the recent years and they have a reputation to protect. The big question is – can they actually do better?
These are our vip soccer bets for the Champions League game between Manchester City and Basel. Good luck!
