The Premier League is decided. Final in League Cup awaits. Continuation in the FA Cup stands for the door. Manchester City has gone as the train on all fronts this season, but the great focus of the spring will undoubtedly be about the Champions League.
Given the fact that on other fronts – especially the league – already feels decided, the power can be channeled on weekends to make the team strongest in the weeks when the Champions League is determined. Now the team of Pep Guardiola has got a pretty comfortable lottery in FC Basel, but the feeling is that they will not show any kind of pardon here.
FC Basel will meet after a long time after which the Swiss have just played two matches in the league. Then there has been a loss, 0-1, home against Lugano and win, 0-2, away against FC Thun. Notice that the team has only made two race matches since 17 December. It goes without saying that there is no advantage in this situation.
Nail into the coffin immediately
In the home team, Luca Zuffi is an insecure card after being injured for a while, while Germano Vailati will not be able to participate at all. In addition, the team has been eliminated with players like Manuel Akanji and Renato Steffen in January. Heavy drop.
For Manchester City, there are no major concerns. Sure, heavy players like Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy are injured. In addition, Leroy Sané, David Silva and Fabian Delph are a little unsure, even though all of them have been in training lately. Having said that, Pep Guardiola can put an incredibly strong start-up on the plane from the start and if we feel Manchester City right, they will want to put some kind of nail into the coffin immediately.
Manchester City is so much better at all levels. Individual, collective, formally. Yes, everything actually speaks for the guests here. We firmly believe that Manchester City goes straight ahead in search of a few goals away.
Our Prediction: City win @ 1.85
