It’s Champions League night! Manchester City welcome FC Basel to the Etihad (it’s the City of Manchester Stadium for UEFA because reasons) for the second leg of their Round of 16 tie. The tie is pretty much over after City destroyed the Swiss side at their stadium and won by a 4-0 score without any trouble.
With a place in the quarter-finals 99% guaranteed, City will be looking to have a good match to keep the momentum going and complete the job as easily as they started it in Basel. Pep Guardiola is expected to make changes to his team and rest some key players, but we’re still going to see a strong squad and you cannot miss this one.
Stay right here with us for a complete coverage of the game from beginning to end, including highlights and all the important updates you need.
