FC Basel not expecting much of the ball against Manchester City

FC Basel will find the ball a precious commodity when they face Manchester City in their Champions League last 16 clash and it must not be wasted, their coach Raphael Wicky said on Monday.

Wicky accepted the runaway English Premier League leaders would dominate possession in Tuesday’s first leg but still believed his team could pull off a repeat of their upset win over City’s neighbours Manchester United in December.

Wicky acknowledged the Swiss champions were rank outsiders and would need a "perfect evening" to spring a surprise against Pep Guardiola's in-form side.

Manchester City are 16 points ahead of second-placed local rivals United at the top of the Premier leauge, through to the League Cup final and are also in the FA Cup fifth round.
