FC Basel vs Man City: 25/1 Betting Odds on Citizens

FC Basel vs Man City: 25/1 Betting Odds on Citizens

Manchester City travel to Switzerland to face FC Basel in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday night, with the game exclusively live on BT Sport.

Basel's visit to the Etihad Stadium on March 7 comes 10 days after City's engagement with Arsenal in the EFL Cup final at Wembley, with Premier League matches against the Gunners and Chelsea in between those two matches.

But City have a score to settle in the knock-out stage of Europe after winning their group this term. 'To come here and win 4-0 against this team, away from home - it is always so hard in this competition.

"I wouldn't call it an inferiority complex but a lack of experience for sure", Kompany told a news conference.

Following gameweek 27 of the Premier League, everyone now believes Man City are a shoo-in for the title.

"We've been caught out on occasions when we shouldn't have been but I think things have changed now", said club captain Kompany.

"It's whether Chelsea can get their ship in order I suppose as we know Tottenham have got quality, they're a settled team, they've got a good system, a great manager".

With the return leg now surely a formality, City are nearly certain to breeze into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, with a real chance of lifting the trophy this season.

"Of course, we have a plan for tomorrow night, there is no tactical strategy, but we have the belief and the mentality that we can do it", said Wicky. It's a tournament that every team wants to win, but not everyone can.

Dimitri Oberlin has scored four goals in his last five Champions League games.

For the first half of the season, they were the forgotten men of Manchester City, but Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan could be just as vital to Pep Guardiola's chances of completing the quadruple as the more celebrated names in their squad.

This is the third time they have made the last 16 of the competition, and they've qualified for the group stage eight times since 1992.

"We start with Basel tomorrow, it's about measuring ourselves with the big clubs and beating them".

The City boss reported Sane would be absent for up to seven weeks with ankle ligament damage sustained in the 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round win at Cardiff City two weeks ago.
