Swiss outfit, Basel, look to have their work cut out if they’re to progress from the round of 16 when they face the runaway Premier League leaders, Manchester City over two legs, despite holding home advantage in this first leg.

Basel come into this Champions League tie having won three of their last four in all competitions, but it’s worth noting that two of these three wins were recorded in club friendlies during the Swiss domestic winter break, but they did register a 2-0 win away at Thun on the weekend in the Super League.

Four wins from the six group matches played earned Basel a place in the round of 16, but they’ll face a tough test here, even though they’ve scored in 13 of their last 14 home matches in the Champions League.

Manchester City swept aside Leicester City in a 5-1 romp at the Etihad Stadium on the weekend as the Premier League leaders were clinical in front of goal and were in no mood to repeat their previous league outing which ended in a 1-1 draw against Burnley after squandering several golden opportunities in front of goal.

Five wins from six in the group stages saw Manchester City breeze through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, but a look at their results away from home in this competition tells us that City are by no means guaranteed a win here tonight.

The visitors have picked up just three wins from their last ten away matches at this level, which were gained at Steaua Bucharest, Feyenoord and Napoli, but they have managed to score in 9 of their last 11 on the road which seems a safer option here.
