Basel ends Man City 36-game unbeaten home run

0

Manchester City’s incredible unbeaten run at the Etihad Stadium came to an end in shock fashion as Pep Guardiola’s men were downed by Basel on Wednesday.

City, 4-0 up from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in Switzerland, took the lead after just eight minutes with Gabriel Jesus marking his first start of 2018 with a goal.

The hosts must have thought that another routine home win was imminent – but Basel had other ideas.

Mohamed Elyounoussi levelled the game less than 10 minutes after Jesus’ opener, before Michael Lang swooped in the second half to send Basel home with a memorable win.

The Citizens nevertheless march into the quarter finals with a 5-2 aggregate win, but the loss ends an incredible run of form in front of their own fans since Pep took over.
