Man City has been unbeaten at home since December 2016 and this season they have won 19 out of 21 matches with a goal score of 62-13.
Basel’s belief in advancement must be non existent and their focus may be on their bright chance of a championship.
Man City has many good reserves to show their worth if they get the chance here and it can add some extra boost to the home team.
With 4-0 in the first match, Man City may lose some motivation, and the final percentage concentration may be lacking in several of the players.
Pep Guardiola will of course save more players, where Ederson, Otamendi, Walker, De Bruyne, David Silva, Aguero and Sane will be obvious to save.
The Swiss need arrears, and a good result in this battle can give them the reward they need.
Man City has had a tight fighting game with 7 matches in 30 days, while Basel has just played 5 matches in the same period.
