Man City ease through to quarters despite rare home loss to Basel

Benjamin Mendy Back in Manchester City Training

The shock victory for the Swiss side was not enough to send them through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, as City came out on top over both legs.

Guardiola nearly fielded a B team on Wednesday with Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi and first-choice keeper Ederson all assigned to the bench.

With the home side leading 5-1 on aggregate at the start of the second half, there was little to play for Basel other than pride. The new record was established by Guardiola's men in their awful home defeat to Swiss club FC Basel in UEFA Champions League.

Manchester City: Claudio Bravo 6 (out of 10), Danilo 5, John Stones 6, Aymeric Laporte 6, Oleksandr Zinchenko 5, Ilkay Gundogan 5, Yaya Toure 6, Phil Foden 7, Bernardo Silva 7, Gabriel Jesus 7, Leory Sane 7.

City completed 977 passes to their opponents 249, but Guardiola said they lacked a goal and appeared to be passing for the sake of it.

U.S. military parade to be held on Veterans Day
Potential details for President Donald Trump's requested military parade were revealed Friday - and tanks are not included. The memo, dated Thursday, indicated "a list of planning considerations" from Secretary of Defense James Mattis .

"But we're not happy with how we played tonight". We spoke about that and in the first half. Just passing to pass is nothing, you have to pass to attack.

Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola has been fined £20,000 and warned regarding his future conduct after accepting a Football Association charge of wearing a "political message". We've had a lot of draws in there but at least the form at the moment is pretty decent. We have to defend from the front, be strong in midfield and defence, and the goalkeeper is going to have to have a great game.

They were unbeaten for 36 home games before this match and it looked impossible for any team to get close to them on their own turf. Everyone is thinking about when we will win the title. To win against a team who are beating one team after another every three days is very special.

City's progress took the number of English teams in the quarterfinals to two, after Liverpool advanced on Tuesday.

"They have showed that for months in all competitions".
