Basel - Manchester City    (won)

      Manchester City confirmed once more that they are the top team in England by defeating Leicester City with 5-1 at home on Saturday, they have a big lead at the top of the league table as they are still undefeated in the league this season, they are also in the League Cup final where they are going to be playing against Arsenal for the trophy, this while Champions League is of course their top aim this season.
     And they could not have asked for an easier opponent as they will face Basel who only played just two games after their winter break which was also not that succesfull losing to Sturm Graz 4-2 or Plzen 2-1, and in the league after the winter break they lost at home to Lugano with 1-0, so besides the fact that Manchester City is in much more competitive mood at this moment, Basel is not really playing like the club which defeated Manchester United and crushed Benfica at home 5-0.
    Manchester City will be very motivated to win this game by as many goals difference as possible so that they can seal the tie from this first leg and Basel simply can not compete with a team with players like City have not to mention a world class coach in Pep Guardiola, so I see no problems for the guests to win this game by 2 goals difference or more and I do expect odds to drop even more.

Basel is good team,that won`t be so easy game for M.City.Also they have second match at home so no need to rush for a win here.Draw is very possible outcome here.

Liverpool beat them in the league

I know that, but they demolished Feyenoord 4-0 away and Napoli 4-2 away in the group stage, they did not care about the final game at Shakthar, they should be really motivated, Basel just restarted the season, poor Lugano beat them at home, not scoring much, while City hasn`t had the break, they keep dominating and winning games, you seriously can not compare a team which trashes Spartak 7-0 at home and Maribor 7-0 away from home with Basel, sure they beat Benfica 5-0, but also were beaten at home by CSKA Moscow 2-1, and Manchester United did not care when they played at Basel.

Maybe good for over 3.5 especially if Basel can score too ?
hovi 13-02-2018, 08:02
City have been allowing a goal or two and Basel is capable to score, yes, they could even cover the over by themselves if you feel more comfortable taking over 3.5 goals.

I`m pretty confident Man City will win. The league is wrapped up so they can concentrate on the cup competitions, mainly this one. I`d prefer -1.25 handicap though.

First at all HOVI, one one point you sad we cant copared, from other you compare with Feyenoord who have 20 points less compared to previous season?It`s a bit contradictory... Second, I do not understand why a match such a this should be predicted at all when everything is possible. Of course City is too strong for them but City had only 4 games with two or more differences in away, with it Basel plays 3-4-3 formation which at defensive turns into 5-4-1 This match should be avoided. Thats my opinion
champion 13-02-2018, 16:23
Good Point Wolfie

Basel playing at home, they want revenge and City players are tired after the flight. I will not put money on City today.
Wolfie 13-02-2018, 17:14
Tnx CHAMPION, just stating my realistic opinion I forgot to mention that City does not have Premier League matche until March which is a bit strange because in March in 4 days have two important matches against Arsenal and next Chelsea and I`m afraid that everything is going for Guardiola to win the Champions League. So maybe they can beat them today easily with 2 goals deference, but for me better dont "touch" this game
champion 13-02-2018, 18:14
I may just watch and see what happens inplay, sometimes you can gauge whether it will be an open game or alot of defence and make a bet inplay. I tried today with AFC Game Al Wasl v Al Sadd at 1-1 over 2.5 was 2.62 at 80min and I tried it and it came in 89min, so maybe I have a look to see what might present itself during this game ?
Wolfie 13-02-2018, 19:22
sure, in play is much much better ! coz i loved to trade, it is much easy to earn some money. Open trade on Betfair with back or lay odds, and wait for profit and close it, no need to wait 90+

I went in a totally other direction in th end mainly for the price, and went with Argentinian Primera C, Canuela`s to win at 3.50 odds, no form really pointed to it at all, but I just had a feeling they would win and put £50 on, and it quite fortunately came in mainly because opponents suffered a red card.
