Man City set UCL knockouts record with Basel 4-0 thrashing

Manchester City’s season continues to impress and Tuesday’s win over Basel in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash saw the club set another record.

The 4-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side is the largest margin ever for an English team away from home in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Liverpool’s 3-0 away victory over PSV Eindhoven in the quarter-finals of the 2006-07 season was the previous best.

It should come as no shock that this City side could set such a record. Guardiola’s men have been fantastic away from the Etihad Stadium this season, having won 16 of their 21 away matches in all competitions, a mark matched only by PSG from Europe’s top five leagues.

The win was also City’s 34th of the season in all competitions, one better than their total through the entirety of last season.
