Match Preview & Team News
The first match of the eight-finals between Basel and Manchester City will be played on Tuesday, February 13.
FC Basel finished as runners-up in Group A of the Champions League, below Manchester United and above CSKA Moscow and Benfica. The Swiss side sealed a 1-0 victory over United at home but suffered a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. A victory over Moscow and brilliant win against Benfica helped Basel to finish with 12 points on their account in the group. This is the third time Basel have made the last 16 of the competition, having qualified for the group stage eight times since the competition was revamped in 1992. Raphael Wicky has managed FC Basel since the beginning of the season 2017/18. We will see what kind of tactics are preparing for visitors from Manchester.
Manchester City have been drawn to play FC Basel in the Champions League Round of 16. Pep Guardiola’s side are one of the favourites to win the tournament and are currently unbeaten in the last six games. Manchester City play excellent football this season and is one of the best teams on the Old continent. Their attacking line with Sergio Aguero in front causer many troubles to the opposition’s defence. Visiting team is favourite to victory in this match, but we are convinced that the host has something to say.
Basel will probably play cautiously and defensively, especially in the first half, trying not to concede the goal, while the other half is likely to be sharper and a bit offensive. On the other hand, Manchester City will attack from the first minute in the game, so it will be enjoyable to follow this match.
The crowd is expecting a spectacular game in this clash and this period of the season is the most exciting one. We are going to witness an excellent match.
