-------------------------------------

Basel: The underdogs (Recent Form: WLWWLL)
Basel did well in group A of UEFA Champions League as they finished it on 2nd place, ahead of CSKA Moscow and Benfica. However, they will face a tough task against Manchester City in the play-off stage. “Manchester City basically have no weaknesses. They can change their game, they're flexible and can react to what their opponents do. They have quality, and their coach has shown his quality with Barcelona and Bayern too. They're an unbelievably strong team. When we have the ball, we have to have the courage to use it. Everything has to go perfectly for us in every single respect if we are to create a big surprise,” said coach Raphaël Wicky. Vailati is out, Balanta and Zuffi are doubtful.
Probable line-ups: Vaclík; Lacroix, Suchý, Balanta; Lang, Frei, Xhaka, Petretta; Elyounoussi, Van Wolfswinkel, Oberlin
 
Manchester City: In good shape (Recent Form: WDWWWW)
Manchester City are performing well in all competitions. ‘The Citizens’ have comfortable situation in Premier League, so they can focus on UCL. “In the Champions League Basel play with a back five and they put in some great performances during the group stage. They're strong and well-organised at the back, and good on the counterattack. I've told my players it will be very, very difficult, particularly here. But we're confident. Our goal is to do better than we did last season, which means going through to the quarter-finals,” said manager Pep Guardiola. Mendy and Gabriel Jesus remain unavailable.
Probable line-ups: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, David Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling; Agüero
 
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it looks like visitors are favourites of this clash. Basel performed fine in group phase, but it rather appears that they don’t have enough quality to stop the in-form Manchester City.
