Manchester City became 13/4 favourites in bwin’s Champions League outright winner odds after battering Basel in the first leg.
Pep Guardiola’s side proved just how destructible they can be with an emphatic 4-0 win in Switzerland.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City put the tie to bed inside 23 minutes in Basel courtesy of goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero.
Add a 4-0 scoreline to the fact that City are unbeaten at home this season, scoring 62 goals in 19 wins and two draws, and the signs are ominous for Basel.
Guardiola could opt to rest players for the second leg after a busy period in which they won the EFL Cup final and beat both Arsenal and Chelsea in the league.
But City’s strength in depth is excellent and another 4-0 win is 7/1 in our Man City vs Basel betting tips.
A Look At Basel’s Betting Odds
Having opened their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 defeat at City’s neighbours Manchester United, Basel responded with four wins in five group matches to reach the last 16.
However, the gulf in class between these two sides showed during the first leg and that mauling appears to have left its mark.
Basel have since been beaten 2-0 at home by Gallen in the Swiss league and lost by the same scoreline to Young Boys in their domestic cup.
Looking at the Man City vs Basel odds, Evens for the hosts to prevail by more than two clear goals is rated fair value.
MAN CITY 1-0 Chelsea – Bernardo Silva
Young Boys 2-0 BASEL
Head-to-head: Basel 0-4 Man City
