Second Half Manchester City 1-2 Basel March 7 2018

Manchester City advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals despite suffering a 2-1 home defeat to Basel, going through 5-2 on aggregate.

Pep chose to leave key players on the bench with none of Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero or goalkeeper Ederson featuring in the game.

German winger Leroy Sane danced through the Basel defence and set up Bernardo Silva whose low cross was tapped in by Gabriel Jesus, his first goal since November.

Basel were clearly determined to restore pride, though, and they drew level nine minutes later when Mohamed Elyounoussi buried the ball in the bottom corner from just inside the area.

Basel’s endeavours were rewarded in the 72nd minute after excellent work from Elyounoussi, Michael Lang blasted past Claudio Bravo at the near post for the winner.
