Manchester City

The Citizens have won three of their last four games since their first leg fixture with Basel last month.After a 0-1 loss to Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup on February 19,head coach Pep Guardiola’s squad went on a three-game winning streak,capped by a crucial 1-0 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea also at the Etihad last Sunday.

Silva scored the winning goal in the 46th minute against the Blues to put City within four wins of capturing this year’s English top-flight title. The club is currently leading the Premier League with 78 points,16 points ahead of second-place Manchester United.

The recent return of Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph, and Benjamin Mendy from separate injuries are expected to boost the team.However,Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho is still out with muscle issues while German winger Leroy Sane is not expected to play.


The Swiss top-flight champions have been struggling as of late with two straight losses following their embarrassing defeat to City last month.The club dropped 0-2 game to St.Gallen in the Swiss Super League on February 17 before succumbing to a similar 0-2 score against the Young Boys in the Swiss Cup on February 28.

Head coach Raphael Wicky’s side is coming in this match as clear underdogs against mighty Manchester City.Swiss goalkeeper Germano Vailati (wound) and Colombian defender Eder Balanta (unknown) are both unavailable for Basel due to injuries while Albanian midfielder Taulant Xhaka is suspended.

Predicted Lineup

Here is the potential starting XI for both sides via Goal:

Manchester City starting lineup (5-4-1 formation): Ederson;Walker, Laporte, Otamendi, Kompany, Danilo; Gundogan,De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling; Aguero.

Basel starting lineup (4-2-3-1 formation):Vaclik; Suchy, Lang, Lacroix, Riveros; Stocker, Die; Frei, Petretta,Elyounoussi; Oberlin.

Basel – 22/1

Draw – 8/1

Manchester, England



Manchester City once again remain without long term absentee Benjamin Mendy,while Fernandinho is again ruled out.Raheem Sterling could return from a brief injury absence,but is more likely to be rested given the aggregate score.Fabian Delph’s domestic ban will have no impact on this game, which see him regain his place in the team with Guardiola expected to rotate his side.

Basel are again without goalkeeper Germano Vailati due to a longstanding injury,while centre back options are increasingly limited due to the absence of Taulant Xhaka through a suspension and Eder Balanta through injury.With that in mind,manager Raphael Wicky is likely to move away from the back three formation seen in the last leg to his more regular 4-4-2 formation.
