Maybe the best club in Europe at the moment, Manchester City, will travel to Switzerland to face the domestic champions, Basel, at the St. Jakob-Park.
The deadliest attack in the top five European leagues will encounter the defense that conceded ‘only’ five goals in the Champions League group stages, which is admirable given the fact they have faced Manchester United and Benfica. Sergio Aguero and his fellow companions have netted fourteen goals during the first phase of the elite European competition, and Basel will experience all sorts of trouble to stop the Citizens, especially after selling their centre-back, Manuel Akanji, this winter.
The RotBlau have won four consecutive games at home prior a 1-0 loss to Lugano. Manchester City have bagged nine goals in their three away games in the Champions League this campaign, including four goals they’ve scored against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.
Raphael Wicky can’t count on the goalkeeper, Germano Vailati, while Samuele Campo and Luca Zuffi’s appearance is still hanging in the balance.
Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy are still out due to injuries, with latter expected to miss the rest of the season, but Pep Guardiola will have Leroy Sane and David Silva at his disposal, as both players managed to recover from leg injuries.
