Manchester City 4/11 to beat Basel in Tuesday’s Champions League clash

Competition: Champions League

Market: Manchester City to beat Basel

Odds: 4/11 @ Bet365

The Champions League returns for more action in the biggest club competition in world football. Every side left in the competition will have aspirations of winning the whole thing, but they must put their best foot forward in the first-leg of their games and, with this in mind, Manchester City travel to face Basel on Tuesday.

Basel were very good in their Champions League group as they finished second in Group A. After six games they won four and lost two, scoring 11 goals and conceding five times. Their last five games saw the side win four times and lose once as they ended on 12 points. Basel already have good practice in facing a side from Manchester as they finished just three points behind Manchester United in their group, and they will hope that this experience can aid them as they look to topple Manchester City on Tuesday.

Manchester City have been outstanding in their Champions League campaign so far. After six games they have won five and lost once, scoring 14 goals and conceding five times. In their last five they were able to win four and lose once, with the defeat coming in their final game with the English side already safely through. Pep Guardiola’s men will be desperate to earn a big win in the away leg of the tie and, if they can achieve this, then it will give them a massive advantage going forward.
