Match Preview

Group winners Manchester City travel to a well-rested Basel side as Champions League (CL) football finally returns!
Since December 17, when Swiss football entered their winter break, Basel have played only two competitive games – whilst Man City have played 14! Will the stark contrast in game-time make a difference on the pitch?
Basel enjoyed a strong Group Stage, qualifying behind Manchester United with 12 points from six games. For anyone wondering whether Basel can put up a fight against Premier League giants Man City – remember they beat Man United in front of their own fans during the Group Stage.
Like all other challenges set before them this season, Pep Guardiola’s City breezed through the CL Group Stage, only dropping points on the final day as already qualified group winners. With the Premiership title seemingly locked up already, success in the CL is the next big goal for the Citizens.
Basel, with a total squad value estimated at around €57 million, must be considered a real underdog in this match – as Man City paid €65 million just for Aymeric Laporte in the January transfer window!
Players to watch: City striker Sergio Aguero has been in scintillating form recently: he has 13 goals in his last ten games, and banged in four at the weekend!
Young striker Dimitri Oberlin has scored four CL goals so far, and scored in the league on Saturday.
Stat attack: City have scored nine goals from their three CL away games so far, scoring four against both Feyenoord and Napoli. They’ve scored 2+ goals in 14 away games this season.
This is the first ever meeting between the sides, but Guardiola has visited Basel before, winning 5-0 with Barcelona in 2008, Basel’s biggest ever CL defeat.
City made it to the semi-finals in the 2015/16 season, while Basel have never made it past this round in CL.
