Match background Only this chapter

Manchester City FC are within touching distance of a second UEFA Champions League quarter-final, while FC Basel 1893 will attempt to restore some pride in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.

• İlkay Gündoğan (2), Bernardo Silva and Sergio Agüero gave City a 4-0 first-leg win in Switzerland, matching the club's record away win in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, and leaving their opponents facing a third last-16 defeat.

• While the English club have lost three of their four last-16 ties – the exception coming in 2015/16, when Manuel Pellegrini's City went on to reach the semi-finals – Basel were beaten on their two previous appearances at this stage, in 2012 and 2015.

Match background

Manchester City
• The Citizens have played in four previous round of 16 ties. Last season Josep Guardiola's side lost on away goals to AS Monaco FC (5-3 home, 1-3 away), their third defeat at this stage. City also went down to FC Barcelona in 2013/14 (0-2 home, 1-2 away) and 2014/15 (1-2 home, 0-1 away); their sole last-16 success was a 3-1 aggregate victory against FC Dynamo Kyiv in 2015/16 (3-1 away, 0-0 home).

Highlights: Basel 0-4 Manchester City

• The 2015/16 campaign is the only previous occasion City won their UEFA Champions League group and also the only time they won the subsequent round of 16 tie.

• This is City's first tie against Swiss opposition.

• City are unbeaten in their last 13 home fixtures in the UEFA Champions League (W10 D3), qualifying included, since a 2-1 Juventus reversal on matchday one in 2015/16. The Juve loss was their fourth in six matches at the City of Manchester Stadium, with just one win in that run. This season they have beaten FC Shakhtar Donetsk (2-0), SSC Napoli (2-1) and Feyenoord (1-0) in Manchester.

• Guardiola's side have won seven of their last eight home European matches, including the last four.

• Third in last season's Premier League, City are making a seventh straight UEFA Champions League appearance – they are in the round of 16 for a fifth campaign in a row.

• Having won their first five games in this season's competition, City lost 2-1 at FC Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday six. They had previously won 4-0 at Feyenoord and 4-2 at SSC Napoli.

• City have therefore recorded their two biggest away wins in the UEFA Champions League proper this season. In addition, their biggest home win is last season's 4-0 group defeat of VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, while they were 5-0 victors at Romania's Fotbal Club FCSB in last season's play-offs – meaning their four biggest wins in the competition, qualifying included, have all come under Guardiola.

• City have never failed to win a European tie after winning the away first leg. There have been eight such contests, most recently against FCSB in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League play-offs (5-0 away, 1-0 home). In every case bar one, City also won the home second leg; the sole exception was that 2016 tie against Dynamo Kyiv (0-0 home).

• The Manchester club have never previously won an away first leg 4-0.

• City's record in penalty shoot-outs in UEFA competition is W2 L0:
4-2 v FC Midtjylland, 2008/09 UEFA Cup second qualifying round
4-3 v Aalborg BK, 2008/09 UEFA Cup round of 16

• This is Basel's third appearance in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. In 2011/12 they beat FC Bayern München 1-0 in the home first leg only to lose 7-0 away – their biggest defeat in UEFA competition.

• In 2014/15, Basel drew 1-1 at home to FC Porto – Danilo, now with City, scoring Porto's goal from the penalty spot – but suffered another heavy away defeat, going down 4-0 in Portugal.

• Raphaël Wicky's team have already enjoyed success against a Manchester club in this season's competition, beating Manchester United FC 1-0 in Switzerland on matchday five having lost 3-0 at Old Trafford in the opening round of games. They finished second behind the English side in Group A, collecting 12 points – their highest total in a UEFA Champions League group stage.

• The Swiss club were 2-0 winners at PFC CSKA Moskva on matchday three and wrapped up their place in the round of 16 by winning 2-0 at SL Benfica on 5 December.

• The CSKA success ended a six-game winless run in European away matches (D1 L5); Basel had won four of their previous five before that sequence.

• Before thrashing Benfica 5-0 on matchday two – their record UEFA Champions League win – Basel were without a victory in nine European matches, home or away (D3 L6), since a 2-1 home success over AS Saint-Étienne on 25 February 2016.

• Beaten away (0-2) and at home (1-4) by Arsenal FC in autumn 2016, the Swiss side had lost their previous three matches against English clubs before overcoming United, having been unbeaten in the previous four (W3 D1).

• Basel's record against English teams is W7 D8 L13; away it is W1 D5 L8.

• Having avoided defeat on their first five trips to England in the UEFA Champions League (W1 D4), Basel have now lost their last two away games.

Gündoğan on 'perfect' City result

• Basel's record in two-legged knockout ties against English clubs is W1 L4. That sole victory came on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur FC in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals (2-2 away, 2-2 home); they lost 5-2 to eventual winners Chelsea FC in the next round (1-2 home, 1-3 away), their most recent knockout contests against a Premier League team.

• Basel have lost all 11 of the UEFA competition ties in which they were defeated in the home first leg, most recently against Chelsea FC in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League semi-finals (1-2 home, 1-3 away).

• Although they have never before lost a home first leg 4-0, Basel's first tie in UEFA competition brought a 5-1 first-leg St. Jakob-Park reverse against Celtic FC in the 1963/64 European Cup Winners' Cup first round, setting up a 10-1 aggregate loss.

• Basel won their only previous UEFA penalty shoot-out:
4-1 v Tottenham Hotspur FC, 2012/13 UEFA Europa League quarter-final

Coach and player links
• Guardiola oversaw Barcelona's 5-0 away win and 1-1 home draw against Basel in the 2008/09 group stage – a campaign that ended with Barça winning the competition, part of a treble of trophies they lifted that season including the Liga and Copa del Rey.

• Kyle Walker was in the Tottenham team beaten by Basel in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.

• Fernandinho scored in Shakhtar's 2-1 win at Basel in the 2008/09 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• Vincent Kompany helped Hamburger SV earn a 1-1 UEFA Cup draw at home to Basel in December 2007.

• Three of Fabian Frei's six European goals have come in England – including Basel's opener in a 3-3 draw at Manchester United in September 2011. He also scored in the 2-2 UEFA Cup quarter-final draw at Tottenham in April 2013 – Valentin Stocker getting the other – and a 1-1 draw at Liverpool FC in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Ricky van Wolfswinkel's goal proved crucial as Sporting Clube de Portugal ousted City in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League round of 16 second leg. The Dutch striker scored the second goal in a 3-2 away second-leg defeat, confirming an away-goals success after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

• Have played together:
Yaya Touré & Geoffroy Serey Dié (Ivory Coast, 2013–2015)

• Raheem Sterling set up England's first goal in a 2-0 UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying away win against Switzerland at Basel's St. Jakob-Park in September 2014.

Head coach Only this chapter

Josep Guardiola

Date of birth: 18 January 1971
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career:
FC Barcelona, Brescia Calcio (twice), AS Roma, al-Ahly Club, Dorados de Sinola
Coaching career:
FC Barcelona B, FC Barcelona, FC Bayern München, Manchester City FC

• Known as 'Pep', he came up through Barcelona's youth ranks to win six Spanish Liga titles, one European Champion Clubs' Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Copa del Rey trophies from 1990 to 2001. Also had spells with Brescia, Roma, al-Ahly in Doha and Mexico's Dorados de Sinola before ending his playing career in 2006. Won 40 caps and Olympic footballing gold with Spain in 1992, but missed the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups through injury.

• Having coached Barcelona's B team, he took charge of the senior side in 2008 and won the UEFA Champions League, Spanish Liga and Copa del Rey in his first season. In the process he became the sixth man to have lifted the European Cup as player and coach.

• That was just the beginning of a glorious four-season spell which yielded 14 trophies. In his second campaign, Guardiola steered Barcelona to a second Liga title as well as the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Even more sucess followed in 2010/11 as Barcelona completed a hat-trick of Spanish titles and, for the second time under Guardiola, got the better of Manchester United FC in the UEFA Champions League final.

• In his final season, 2011/12, Guardiola's team won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup once more before he signed off his reign with a second Copa del Rey triumph. After a year's break, Guardiola took charge of Bayern in June 2013, replacing Jupp Heynckes.

• Collected the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup and, with a record seven games to spare, the Bundesliga title in his first season in Germany. Secured his second successive Bundesliga title the following season, and Bayern again dominated domestically in 2015/16, but all three of Guardiola's UEFA Champions League campaigns in Bavaria ended in the semi-finals. Opted for a new challenge at Manchester City in summer 2016 but his first year in charge produced Guardiola's first trophy-less campaign as a coach.


Raphaël Wicky

Date of birth: 26 April 1977
Nationality: Swiss
Playing career: FC Sion (twice), SV Werder Bremen, Club Atlético de Madrid, Hamburger SV, CD Chivas USA
Coaching career: FC Thun (youth), Servette FC (youth) FC Basel 1893 (youth, reserves), FC Basel 1893

• A technically skilled and physically strong midfielder, Wicky's versatility proved an asset for club and country from the moment he debuted for Sion aged 16. He won the Swiss Cup three times and added a league title in 1996/97 before crossing the German border for Bremen.

• Wicky lifted the DFB-Pokal in his second year and made over 100 appearances for Werder before a short stint in Spain with Atlético in 2001; he swiftly returned to Germany, signing for Hamburg whom he would represent for six seasons.

• Wicky had his first Switzerland outing in April 1996, playing once at that year's UEFA European Championship; his 50th cap came just before UEFA EURO 2004 and he was a squad member at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, retiring from international football with 75 caps the following year.

• A fan of nature and spending his free time in the Swiss mountains, Wicky had a brief period working in Thun's youth set-up in 2009/10 before making his name as a talented youth coach during three years at Servette.

• In 2013 Basel approached him to take charge of their Under-18s and he guided the club's UEFA Youth League team in 2016/17 before stepping up to the senior side to replace Urs Fischer.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League knockout stage: Did you know?

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 40 times, including FC Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Leicester City FC and AS Monaco FC in the 2016/17 round of 16. Only twice – AFC Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos FC in the 1995/96 semi-finals and FC Internazionale Milano's victory against FC Bayern München in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by FC Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by RC Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home.

• Twenty-eight ties have been decided on away goals, including nine where the triumphant team lost the first leg.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals including Real Madrid CF-FC Bayern München in 2016/17, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool FC, and the 2013/14 final.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties.

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Club Atlético de Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid CF's defeat of Manchester City FC in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool FC (versus FC Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş JK) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at FC Schalke 04 in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16. Bayern eventually beat Sporting 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both FC Basel 1893 (2011/12) and FC Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburger SV 1983), José Mourinho (FC Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Only two sides have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome). Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in FC Barcelona's 7-1 triumph against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat reproduced by FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at FC BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against Manchester City FC on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.

• SS Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete at this level, having been aged 43 years and 252 days when he figured against Madrid on matchday six of the 2007/08 edition.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in AS Roma's 1-1 draw at PFC CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years and 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared – he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for RSC Anderlecht against FC Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored, aged 17 years and 195 days, in Olympiacos FC's 5-1 reverse at Rosenborg BK on 1 October 1997.
