Basel (10/1) Draw (17/4) Man City (19/50) See the Latest Odds
Manchester City have big hopes in the Champions League. They will start their knockout campaign against Basel away from home. The Sky Blues have a great chance of making history and it will be interesting to see how they perform in this game.
Basel will feel unlucky that they drew Manchester City but they will know that if they are to cause an upset, they will need to win at home. Basel are a good team but when we compare these two teams, they are no match for Manchester City. At home, Basel are still a dangerous side and it will be interesting to see how they match up to Manchester City.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City will hope that they can have a big win to take away any pressure from the second leg round at home. This is a very good side and they will be fresh since they have a big squad which they have been able to rotate all season. Aguero is in great form and if he is not controlled, this could end up being a massive win for Pep and his team.
With all that in mind, I think that Manchester City will win this game and that they will win with some ease. They are the better side and this should be quite an easy game for them. I am predicting a big win and as a result the over 2.5 goals is a bet which I like. I think that Manchester City will score more than 3 goals on their own. As far as betting on the result is concerned, there is no real value since Manchester City have a very short price.
