City XI | Ederson, Walker, Kompany (C), Otamendi, Delph, Fernandinho, Gündogan, De Bruyne, Sterling, Bernardo, Agüero

Subs | Bravo, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Sané, Silva, Foden.

Good to see Vinnie starting.

Come on you blues.

I was just typing out that the scene was set and the Swiss bus had been well and truly parked - and Gundog bullets in that header!

Looked a bit dodgy from the start but goal from a corner!

Come on Cityyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

Bernardo 2-0, get in.

1 more goal and that should be tie over!

Basel look quick and dangerous on the break - always a risk our defence might go to sleep at some point, so yes, a third goal will ease my nerves.

Otamendi is looking like a weak link. Perhaps we can flog Bravo to these and Mangled.

great score line but their keeper makes Bravo look good.

Entertaining stuff. Fortunately City are finishing better than Basel and their keeper is worse.

And Kompany is still worryingly hesitant at odd moments, but we seem OK and reasonably comfortable.

Plenty of time to get a 5th. David Silva coming on for KdB.

Certainly does.

Come on Pep. You should have brought Foden on, B Silva looks a bit tired 2nd half.

That will do! Great win, and a little 'message' to the rest of the comp.

At the final whistle I can't work out if Gundog is more pissed off about his booking or the hat-trick he missed out on.

As an added bonus Bein Sports in Aus have followed the game with 15 minutes of "Roma - Great Goals" so I'm now watching Dzeko and Kolarov knocking a few goals in. (Dzeko has scored some crackers!)

Bit of a frustrating second half but can't grumble at 4-0 away win!

As has happened before with leads, we seemed to relax too much and our passing went 'off' . The tempo dropped (not surprisingly) but we started under-hitting and miss directing straightforward passes - allowing Basel to see a little too much of the ball in risky areas.

Well that's screwed the attendance for the 2nd leg!  :D

Although we were a bit sloppy at the back I doubt that would be Pep's preferred back four if we were facing PSG or Barca.

amazing he was back playing :o
In the end comfortable win and able to key players off early.

He scored some crackers for us too. A scorer of great goals, but his build up play & passing was not good enough.
