UCL: City Brush Aside Basel To Claim Massive Away Win As Tottenham Hold Juventus In Italy
Manchester City made their return to the Champions League knock-out stages in scintillating fashion as they thrashed FC Basel 4-0 away from home.
City travelled to Switzerland for the leg of their last-16 tie and hammered a wasteful Basel side to all but book their place in the next round of the competition.
Pep Guardiola’s side arguably settled the tie in the first half, scoring three well-worked goals, finished off by Ilkay Gundogan , Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero.
With a little more composure and attacking panache, they might have still been in the tie – but it wasn’t to be for the Swiss side as they fell to an embarrassing defeat, and face a near-impossible task when they travel to England for the second leg in three weeks.
