KIEV. 14 Feb. UNN. In the second meeting of the first competition day of 1/8 final of League of Champions English “Manchester city” won a landslide away victory over the representative of Switzerland “Basel”, informs UNN.

Conceding three goals within first 25 minutes of the first half (from Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Aguero), “Basel”, in fact, signed his own death warrant. The Swiss tried to play safely, several times made seriously into the game the defense and the goalkeeper “city”, but it was useless. Obvious difference in class and inexcusable errors in defence was accurately reflected in the scoreline.

After an active start in the execution of the owners, everything quickly fell into place. Despite a few bright moments “Basel”, “city” again took the initiative in their hands and scored the fourth goal. After the transfer, Aguero, Gundogan easily removed on the backswing defender and struck exactly in the right top corner a little from outside the penalty area — 0:4.
