The also beat Benfica 5-0 in tfron of their own fans. They have won four of their last five Champions League fixtures against English opposition in the Champions League at St. Jacob Park. Domestically, Basel are second in the Swiss Super League, 5 points shy of pace-setters Young Boys. Since the campaign resumed, they have lost 0-1 at home against Lugano, and have beaten 2-0 FC Thun away from home.

Manuel Akanji and Renato Steffen after both moved to Germany in the January transfer window while Luca Zuffi is a major doubt. Germano Vailati is sidelined but Valentin Stocker returned to the club in January and should play on the right. Dimitri Oberlin will be the lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 starting system, with Kevin Bua and Mohamed Elyounoussi joining Stocker as offensive midfielders. The likes of Geoffroy Serey Diè and Taulant Xhaka will anchor the midfield while Raoul Petretta, Eder Balanta, Marek Suchy and Michael Lang will form the four man backline.

Manchester City are storming ahead in the Premier League table and enter this clash on the back of a 5-1 victory over Leicester City, courtesy of 4 goals scored by Sergio Aguero. Their lead at the top of the Premier League has been extended to a whopping 16 points. Their away form has not been so impressive in the recent weeks, having only won two of their last five in all competitions. In the Champions League group stage, the Citizens have topped Group F with 15 points following five wins and a loss to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy are still out due to injury while David Silva  and Leroy Sane are both doubtful after missing the last two outings. John Stones and Phil Foden returned to action over the weekend but they are expected to make the bench. Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling will flank Sergio Aguero upfront, while Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho will retain their starting berth in midfield. In defense, Vincent Kompany and Danilo are favourite to get the nod over Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
