Manchester City v Basel Betting Tips & Predictions | Champions League Match Previews.
6 March 2018 – 19:45, Etihad Stadium, Manchester.
Match Preview & Team News
Manchester City is going to host Basel in the second leg match of the Champions League eight-finals. The hosts want to secure their ticket for the next round without many troubles, while the away side wants to avoid being outclassed as in the first match.
After shocking elimination from the FA Cup, home side has tied three straight wins while being able to keep the clean sheet. They celebrated twice in a row against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, both times with the same scoreline: 3-0. In the latest round of the Premier League, Pep Guardiola’s side was better than Chelsea and remained on the winning course. Manchester City secured a convincing win in the first leg match against their opponents since they celebrated a 4-0 victory in Basel. They can take full control of this tie once more and put themselves in the commanding position since they have almost booked their ticket for the quarter-finals.
Basel is in a really bad form in the second half of the season. In the last five occasions, they have booked only one win in all competitions, while being defeated four times. In those four matches they weren’t able to score a goal, which should worry their head coach Raphael Wicky. Their attacking line lead by Ricky van Wolfswinkel is not productive enough and the visitors will most probably loose the title in Switzerland Superleague. They couldn’t imagine harder opponent in the Champions League and after heavy defeat in the first leg, Basel’s main mission will be to save their pride in Manchester.
Home crowd is expecting another convincing display of their team and an interesting match although the opposition is not so attractive in this phase of the competition.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is clear that the hosts are absolute favourites in this one and they should be able to secure the win by the end of the first half.
Goals Market Prediction
We should expect at least three goals in this one, but since the odds for this tip is low, we are going to try with at least two goals in the first half.
