He ranks second in the Swiss Championship, 5 points away from Young Boys.
In this beginning of the year, he played two rounds in the championship … the benefits in both stages were modest, managed to win a single victory.
He scored in 93% of the matches played on his own field.
In the Champions League, he scored 12 points out of 18 possible (4 wins and 2 defeats). I would like to mention that all 4 wins have occurred at 0, which means that the team knows how to defend themselves quite well.
The only goal from the home side’s keeper is Germano Vailati being injured.
He occupies the first position in the Premier League standings and has a 16-point lead over Manchester United.
He finished the Champions League group first, gaining 15 points after the 5 wins and a defeat.
I come after a clear victory in the championship against Leicester, score 5-1.
He has an average of over 2 goals scored per match this season in the Champions League.
Gabriel Jesus, L. Sane, F. Delph, B. Mendy and David Silva are unavailable for this game.
The two teams have never met before.
My tip for FC Basel vs. Manchester City
65% of the games played by Man. The city on the way ended with at least 3 goals scored and 75% of them were won by “citizens”.
The coach of the hosts, said Basel will tackle a defensive game style, trying to counter the counterattack.
FC Basel has a good history against English teams, in 2013 he defeated Chelsea in 2011 and in 2017 defeated Manchester United, so I do not think it will be an easy move for Pep Guardiola team and I will avoid a solo bet.
The difference between the two teams is great, the guests have a much more qualitative and valuable lot. The goal of the hosts was reached, surpassing the group stage … on the other hand, the City’s goal is to win the trophy.
Bearing in mind that Manchester City has a reassuring advance to the 2nd place in the domestic championship, the Champions League remains the competition they will focus on until the end of the season.
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1.57
