Feyenoord v Manchester City Betting Tips Explained


Manchester City go into their opening Champions League match on the back of their biggest win of the season so far – a 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool at the weekend. In truth the game swung firmly in City’s favour once the visitors were reduced to 10 men, following Sadio Mane’s first-half dismissal, but City were ruthless during the second half as they rattled in three more goals to add to Liverpool’s misery.

“The game was tight, it was equal when it was 11 against 11,” manager Pep Guardiola said afterwards. “After the red card it was different - I know it's not easy to play against 10, it's easier but not easy. But we controlled the game and the second goal before half-time was so important. They changed the system and we spent a few minutes to adjust but after that we were in control.”

City will now turn their attention to the European scene on Wednesday night as they begin their quest to finally make an impact in the Champions League, and providing the opposition in the Netherlands are a Feyenoord side managed by Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The former Arsenal, Barcelona and Rangers star has been a big success since arriving at the Stadion Feijenoord in May 2015, leading the club to Dutch Cup glory in 2016 before guiding them to a first Eredivisie title in 18 years last season. Master-minding a win over Manchester City would only add to van Bronckhorst’s growing reputation as a manager, but I do not see the Dutch side avoiding defeat in this Group F fixture, despite the fact they have won all five of their competitive fixtures so far this season.

City have not been particularly convincing so far this season, despite that 5-0 success against Liverpool at the weekend, but they appear to be finding their feet at this time and in the trio of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne they have a group that will cause problems for any defence they come up against this season. They should certainly be a major headache for this Feyenoord rear-guard on Wednesday night and I expect them to provide a few goals here, with Jesus and appealing goalscorer pick having netted three times in his last two games.

City are going to need a few goals because I expect the home side to find the back of the net. The visitors are likely to be without first choice goalkeeper Ederson after he suffered a facial injury at the weekend and Claudio Bravo hardly instils confidence, especially when he is coming up against a Feyenoord side that are averaging over two goals per game this season. The home side should score, but Manchester City should score more.
