Manchester City became 3/1 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.

The Premier League leaders are expected to complete a resounding aggregate win and it is evens for over 3.5 goals in the second leg in our Man City vs Basel betting predictions.

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 61 goals in 18 wins and two draws, and the signs are ominous for Basel.

Guardiola could opt to rest players for the second leg as they have a FA Cup fifth-round tie at Wigan, the EFL Cup final and Premier League showdowns with Arsenal and Chelsea between now and then.

But City’s strength in depth is excellent and another 4-0 win is 29/4 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.

The gulf in class between the two sides showed during the first leg, but Basle are in form on the road.

The Swiss outfit are unbeaten in 10 matches on their travels, winning their last five, and have scored 22.

So, looking at the Man City vs Basel odds, the visitors to score anytime at 11/10 could be an option.
