Reason For Basel vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Basel put in some excellent performances in the Champions League group stages as they finished 2nd in a very competitive group, behind Manchester United but in front of CSKA Moscow and Benfica. Their reward for their efforts was to draw one of the most dangerous teams in world football in the first knockout round, and not many will be expecting them to cause an upset against Manchester City.

The Swiss side only returned to competitive action at the start of February after their winter break, losing at home to Lugano but getting back to winning ways on Saturday. They have actually won nine of their last ten competitive games, including a shock 1-0 win at home to Manchester United and a 2-0 win way to Benfica.

Manchester City are a class apart though, and they showed that again on Saturday as they hammered Leicester 5-1. Sergio Aguero netted four second half goals that game to take his tally to 21 in 22 Premier League appearances, and with him netting all three of his Champions League goals away from home this season, backing him to find the net on Tuesday looks the best option for our anytime goalscorer predictions.

That win at home to Leicester makes it six games unbeaten for The Citizens, with their only failure during this period being a draw with Burnley last weekend. Away from home they have actually dropped a few points recently, but with five wins from their last nine games they are still a force to be reckoned with.

The fact they won five of their six group stage games in the Champions League tells a story of how good they are too, with their singular defeat in the group stage coming in the final game when the top spot was already wrapped up. Before that they had won five on the bounce and scored 13 goals in the process.

Manchester City’s incredible attacking force, coupled with a leaky defence that has seen them keep a clean sheet in just five of their last 14 away games, means they have seen a huge amount of goals this season. In fact, 13 of their 20 away games this season have seen at least three goals, and with nine of Basel’s 14 home games being high scoring affairs as well, backing a Manchester City win and Over 2.5 Goals looks a good choice.

We’re also opting for Manchester City to Win and Both Teams to Score as well, due to the fact the Swiss side have scored in all but one of their home matches this season, so that alongside a 3-1 correct score predictions looks a good value bet.
