Champions League tips: Guardiola’s Man City to cruise past Basel

| 06.03.2018

Manchester City will continue their quest for Champions League glory when they host Basel tonight.

Pep Guardiola’s men are 4-0 up after a superb display in the first leg over in Switzerland.

Goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero had the Citizens 3-0 up within 23 minutes and effectively killed the game as a contest.

Basel have lost four of their last five matches since their winter break. Our traders make City 1/6 to win this evening. The draw is 11/2 while a Basel victory is 16/1.

Like with Liverpool last night, City will want to maintain momentum here having seen off Arsenal (twice) and Chelsea in their last three matches.

The Premier League leaders are 4/7 on the -1 handicap and 29/20 to win -2.

Bernardo Silva is enjoying a good run in the City side of late, and the former Monaco man is taking his chance.

Silva netted a fine strike in the league win over Arsenal, before grabbing the winner versus Chelsea.

He scored in Switzerland too and is 4/1 to bag the opener this evening, while there’s 6/5 about him scoring anytime.

Aguero and Gabriel Jesus share first goalscorer favouritism at 13/5. Raheem Sterling is 10/3 while Kevin de Bruyne is 6/1.

Only Will Grigg has managed to score against City in the last five matches. There’s 5/6 about tonight’s hosts keeping another clean sheet.

As for correct scores, another 4-0 City success is 9/1, while there’s 6/1 for a 3-0 home win.
