Basel bashed as Man City win 4-0

Pep Guardiola heaped praise on Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan following the side's 4-0 defeat of Basel.

Their first three goals came in a devastating nine-minute spell thanks to a Gundogan header, a Bernardo Silva volley and a long-range Sergio Aguero strike.

"It's an fantastic result in the last-16 of this competition", Guardiola said, as quoted via The Express.

"Four-zero away - it's incredible result, but the Champions League is 180 minutes in total", he said. The most prestigious stage for European club football kicks off from the round of sixteen, with exciting games already played on Tuesday night, with unbelievable results.

"OK, we could be more clinical but it was 4-0. I'm delighted, and now we prepare for Wigan". They were four incredible goals.

Gundogan added a fourth after the break and was only denied a hat-trick by the dogged determination of Basel goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik.

A blood alcohol test taken three hours later showed that Romero still had a BAC of 0.19 which is more than twice the legal limit. The death of the 3-year-old boy is the second recent fatal incident involving a drunk driving illegal immigrant in the past week.

Guardiola said the return of David Silva and Leroy Sane, who both came on in the second half, boosts City's chances in the coming weeks. Given how he ghosts into good positions undetected, and given his technical level, he should have more than just two goals for the season.

"When I see him play I realise how we missed him last season". He's a special player, with a lot of personality. He doesn't feel pressure, he's a top player.

The emphatic victory all but guaranteed Pep Guardiola's side a place in the quarter-finals but captain Kompany insists there will be no drop in intensity for the second leg at the Etihad Stadium next month.

City face off against the Latics on Monday in their fifth round FA Cup tie, as their quest for the quadruple continues.

"Arsenal and Chelsea, it will be so important to be focused there and make another step to try to be close to the Premier League".

Kompany, who was playing his first game in the competition since injury curtailed his participation in the 2016 semi-final at Real Madrid, and centre-back partner Nicolas Otamendi endured some nervy moments early on in the tie against livewire forward Dimitri Oberlin. We started well, we created chances and managed to win balls but, as I said yesterday, we needed a flawless night.
