Basel vs Manchester City Preview

Basel host Manchester City in the Champions League round of 16 this week and the Premier League giants will be looking to secure a big win in the first leg.

The hosts cannot be underestimated despite their lack of quality. They managed to beat Manchester United 1-0 at home in December in the group stages.

Also, Manchester City have been quite unpredictable on the road in the recent weeks. They have only won two of their last five in all competitions and this could be a tricky outing for them.

Basel vs Manchester City Team News

Luca Zuffi is a doubt for the home side and Germano Vailati is sidelined.

Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus and Fabian Delph are still sidelined for City.

Predicted Basel Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Vaclik; Lang, Suchy, Balanta, Petretta; Die, Xhaka; Bua, Elyounoussi, Stocker; Oberlin

Predicted Manchester City Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Kompany, Laporte; Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Aguero, Silva

Basel vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions. Bet on the away side to win or draw.

Manchester City have scored 17 goals in their last six matches in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals seem likely.

Basel vs Manchester City Prediction

Manchester City are firm favourites to win on current form.

Basel are heading into this game on the back of a home defeat. Also, they are severely out of their depth against a team as good as City.

An away win seems certain here.

Basel 0-3 Manchester City

Top three Premier League bets for the weekend matches

Watford are 9/5 to win at West Ham
(William Hill).

Theo Walcott is 9/4 to score anytime for Everton vs Crystal Palace (Paddy Power).
Burnley are 15/4 to win at Swansea, to nil (Coral).

Tottenham vs Arsenal first up!

A brilliant weekend of Premier League action is in store for us before we return to the Champions League knockout rounds.

What a feast of football we have in the next few days!

And, it all starts off at Wembley with Tottenham against Arsenal in what should be a fascinating north London derby.

Arsenal took the spoils earlier on in the season at The Emirates. Can the Gunners stop Harry Kane?

Four 3pm games…

After the NLD, there are four Premier League games to keep us entertained.

Everton host Crystal Palace. Stoke take on Brighton. Swansea host Burnley. And, West Ham play Watford.

All four matches will have a bearing on the bottom of the table, which is looking so congested.

Saturday closes out with Manchester City taking on Leicester at The Etihad. Surely The Foxes will not be the first side this season to beat the runaway Premier League leaders at home?

Super Sunday?

There are three games to keep us entertained on Sunday, starting with Bournemouth at Huddersfield.

Jose Mourinho will be looking for his first ever win at St James’ Park when he faces Rafa Benitez again.

Newcastle need the points against Manchester United.

The final game on Sunday sees Liverpool play at Southampton. St Mary’s will surely have a special welcome for Virgil van Dijk.

But there are likely to be plenty of ex-Southampton players in the Liverpool line-up, such as Dejan Lovren, Sadio Mane and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Premier League weekend comes to a close on Monday night as Chelsea take on West Brom with Antonio Conte’s job on the line!

Surely the Blues will beat the Baggies1

#SproutChat Recap: Marketing Predictions for 2018

Social media is a constantly evolving space, with some changes being more drastic than others. Predictions were made before 2018 of what marketing would look like this year and with the new year underway, we took time talk about how these trends will actually pan out.

From Facebook to influencer marketing to video content—participants weighed in with their two cents as marketing professionals.

Community, Not Audience

Marketers know they have to flex when it comes to social platforms, but Facebook’s latest news had brands in a fluster. Utilizing a mixture of quality content, investing in your existing relationships and some paid budget can help you as Facebook updates their algorithm.

The Turn to Micro-Influencers

Influencer marketing saw quite a bit of movement in 2017, but the shift to micro-influencers will be noticeable this year. Brands will turn to their biggest brand champions, where they have existing relationships, rather than use big names with no connection to the brand.

Video Is Here to Stay

Marketers have come around and fully embraced video in their social content strategies. In 2018, we continue to see this trend going strong with a particular focus on live streaming. Social is the most real-time marketing channel out there, so time is of the essence with this feature.

Crafting the Story

Storytelling has always been vital for brands, but teams will be even more pressed to create narratives that do well in ephemeral messaging. Brands will have to dig deeper and find ways to engage with their audience even further.

Join us next Wednesday to talk with Sprout All Star Elite, Erika Heald, about the value of supporting customer stories with case studies. Until then, be sure to join our Facebook community to connect with other social media marketers.
