UEFA Champions League: Manchester City finish off Basel in 23 minutes

"Brakes? What are brakes

"Four-zero away - it's amazing result, but the Champions League is 180 minutes in total".

There was a period in the mid-noughties when English clubs dominated the Champions League. These sides met in the beginning of the month, with Manuel Pellegrino's men claiming a 3-2 win at the Hawthorns.I'm backing Both Teams to Score at 17/20.

8 - Guardiola's side eased off in the second half, but at 4-0 up it's easy to understand why. "They have managers who put confidence into attacking players, who give them freedom".

Obviously this season's challenge for a Premier League title is over for any club not named Manchester City.

"To win 4-0 away in the last 16 is an amazing result, we are almost in the quarter-finals, but I am not saying we are already there, out of respect for Basel", said Guardiola.

The defending may worry Guardiola.

The Premier League leaders took a giant step towards the Champions League quarter-finals as they stormed to a comprehensive victory, with goals from Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero at St Jakob-Park.

Tuesday night also witnessed Tottenham Hotspur maintain their astonishing European quest.

The pedigree, the history, the allure of Real can only take them so far, and only intimidate rivals so many times.

Most of the damage was done as City rattled in three goals in a blistering nine-minute spell early in the first half, dashing Basel's hopes of causing an upset after making a bright start.

Basel had the first opportunity of the second period when Mohamed Elyounoussi struck one from distance, but Ederson was on hand to turn the ball around the post.

He said: "The key thing for me was the effort was just as good as in all previous games". He is a special player with a lot of personality.

Former Chelsea FC midfielder Lampard doesn't expect Arsenal to finish in the top four, rendering the Europa League a vital competition for the Gunners. I had this experience in Munich and it was of little advantage to us.

City - who have a historic quadruple in their sights - Chelsea and Spurs are strong favourites to reach the last eight as they face lower league opposition.

Well, Gerrard got his wish.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds have scored a tournament leading 28 Champions League goals this season, which must have caught the eye of some of the other sides remaining in the draw.

Once again, there are at least two leagues within the Premier League as the top six pull further clear of the rest. In the league it is very close.

No Philippe Coutinho, no problem for Liverpool.

While Liverpool have moved to within striking distance of United, Chelsea are just a point behind them and Tottenham one back on the Blues. They didn't panic and calmly went about their game plan, managing to exploit whatever weaknesses were to be found in Juventus's tactical alignment. On that showing, if Juventus were a Premier League side they would struggle to get into the top six.
