Man City defender Kompany: We have to win the second leg

Vincent Kompany is adamant Manchester City won't rest in the second-leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie against Basel.

The Premier League leaders will take an enormous advantage back to the Etihad after they destroyed Basel 4-0 on Tuesday night.

But speaking to BT Sport straight after the win, Kompany was certain City wouldn't be settling for anything less than a win in Manchester.

He said: "We played against a back five and they're similar to Chelsea the way they get out, so as a back four you are stretched.

"For a Champions League game we did ever so well.

"In these kinds of situations it is about more than going through - if we have a draw at home that won't give us a good feeling."
