The Manchester City are favorites to run for the Champions League and we will not risk challenging the position of bookmakers. While driving in the Premier League – the Skyblues are 18 points clear of Liverpool, posting 25 successes in 29 days – Agüero and his teammates have already locked their place for the quarterbacks of the LDC, thanks to their wide success brought back from Switzerland (0-4) in the round of 16 first leg. Recent winner of Arsenal (0-3) and Chelsea (1-0), Manchester City seems insatiable, as he prepares to parade in front of his audience against the Basel. A match on which Pep Guardiola intends to rely to validate a little more his choices, while sending a new message to the competition. On the Swiss side, the objective will be to look good, faced with a superior education on all levels … Accustomed to produce beautiful things offensively in recent years on the European scene, Embolo & co will they manage at least to shake once the nets of Ederson?
Manchester City had fun on the Swiss pitch in the first leg: 0-4. We do not even dare to imagine what the score could look like Etihad if however De Bruyne and others decide to produce their best football for 90 minutes.
5 of the last 9 games played by the Skyblues in front of their audience have seen at least four goals.
Manchester City, a Premier League titleholder, has absolutely no interest in getting out of the way for the upcoming games. On the contrary, the English club wants to reinforce its status of favorite of the competition by delivering a new noticed performance.
Basel have taken the water on their land in the space of 20 minutes (0-3 after 23 ‘) in the first leg and it is clearly feared that it will be completely submerged in England, in front of Citizens who will want send a new message to football Europe. Unaccustomed to refusing the game, the Swiss will have opportunities – and could even score a small goal – but may still take at least four or five. Like three weeks ago, the “over 3.5 goals” will pass quietly.
