this match shows how important de bruyne is in that starting lineup without him they don't look like the same team.
@RemyLebeu Nah. It's just because Man. City was already qualified.
@hellreaper true , tell that to that stupid perk
@RemyLebeu Add Agüero and David Silva and you are closer to the truth .
Whoever predicted 1-3 above, i need your link.. U must be on another frequency, no one saw this loss coming
@Aei I saw it coming the clues are there no 1 basel have beaten a english team in group stages manchester united and have a record for beating english teams in the past. no2 man city played b team. no 3 basel had lot of rest for this match no 4 man city didn't care for this match as they looked like they were playing for a draw. it has happened so many times before arsenal losing to oosterund because arsenal didn't care they were qualified man city losing to shaktar in group stages because they were already qualified.
@Aei It was predictable. City won first leg, they wouldn't have played hard in this one. Not a big surprise at all.
I knew it this match will depend if city b team take the match seriously and they didn't basel already beaten a english team in manchester united and fancied a upset and had a lot of rest before this match.
Jesus and Mohamed scored? This is turning into a religious war isn't it
@mrCham Lol! Jesus and Mohamed are all the mighty messengers of God. They are allies not enemies. So, no war ;-)
@proud93 And I always thought Mohamed is the guy around the corner, who sells tomatos and apples on Wednesday and Saturday ...
@mrCham And God (Messi) will score tomorrow.
@uefalona Barca playing in the UEL now? damn..
@dynek oh wait, i meant next week :p
De Bruyne on the bench ? What happened, did he tie himself there with handcuffs ?
@neumi17 And he's not in the best form lately, maybe some rest is welcome
@neumi17 they won 5-0 at the away match why would he put debruyne in a meaningless match
@ik32 Because he has done it all the games before ...every game ...
City needs David Silva to open the dead-lock
Sane is just insane ! One of the top 3 wingers in world football right now ...
Another training match for Man City
@Cannavaro69 finalllly de bruyne gets a rest you keep saying when pep will rest him well now he has.
@RemyLebeu yeah lol
The 'B team' players will have a point to prove as they play for a place in the first team.After this Man city do not have a game until next Monday night at relegation strugglers stoke.
Laporte will start.
One sided game, no competition here.
1&3-5goals in match
when your B team is just as strong as your A team in this case man city for everything else there's mastercard.
All depends if man city will take this match seriously if they play like they did against shaktar donetsk where the b team didn't care because they were already qualified then basel might fancy their chance of a upset. And basel already beaten a english team in manchester united plus they have had a lot of rest because of basil's postponed match. so it will depend on the lineup and if man city B team want to win.
would play Ederson; Zinchenko, Laporte, Stones, Danilo; Yaya, Gundogan, Foden; Brahim, Jesus, Bernardo...But Pep will probably put out a stronger team. Anyways, City 2-0 Basel
Pointless game, but still City to win to nil.
2-0 is enough with B team
city win with b team
Manchester City wins again.
