Manchester City effectively killed off their Champions League tie against FC Basel after 23 minutes on Tuesday night in a 4-0 away win.
Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero scored within nine minutes of each other to spoil the party for their hosts in Switzerland.
Gundogan curled in his second from the edge of the area in the 53rd minute as the runaway Premier League leaders clocked up another emphatic win in their remarkable season.
Boss Pep Guardiola couldn’t be happier with his team’s display, saying: “It’s an amazing result.
“The tie is 180 minutes but we are almost there.”
