Man City v Basel Betting Preview
Venue: Etihad Stadium
Watch: BT Sport 3
Following Manchester City’s first fixture against Basel, it’s safe to say that the Citizens have already qualified for the Quarter Final. In addition to this, Manchester City are already in high spirits following their victory against Chelsea, even though the Blues provided a questionable performance. Furthermore, Manchester City may take the opportunity to rotate the squad in order to give younger players to perform on the European stage, such as Phil Foden.
Furthermore, Basel are even struggling in their domestic league even by their own standards. They are currently sitting second in the Swiss Super League but are 14 points behind league leaders Young Boys. In addition to this, the Swiss side haven’t won a single fixture since their defeat to Manchester City.
- It is expected that Manchester City will rotate the side.
- Therefore, it is expected that Bravo, Toure and Foden will enter the side.
Potential Manchester City Starting XI: Bravo; Danilo, Kompany, Stones, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Toure, Sane; Bernardo Silva, Jesus, Foden
