Reasons for betting on Feyenoord vs Manchester City tip
Manchester City is the only English team who is going to start the Champions League abroad. Pep Guardiola and the boys are going to the Netherlands to meet with Feyenoord, who won the title in the previous campaign.
The hosts are anxious to play once again in the Champions League, and they have a huge desire to show what they can. Meanwhile, the Citizens are entering this contest in high spirits after humiliating Liverpool 5-0 this Saturday. That was by far their best performance of this season.
It seems that the hosts are unstoppable in the Netherlands. In 5 competitive games they played this season, Feyenoord recorded all 5 victories. When looking the domestic championship, they scored 12 goals after 4 rounds and apparently, the former European champions are getting better and better as they scored 9 of them in the most recent two games. No matter the opponent they are always attacking at the legendary De Kuip. Giovanni van Bronkhorst built the team capable of pressuring the opponents for the whole 90 minutes. Steven Berghuis and Jean-Paul Boetius scored 7 goals so far, and they are the biggest threats to the guest team.
Manchester City overview
Things couldn’t have been better at Etihad Stadium. After starting crisis with efficiency, Citizens scored 5 goals against Liverpool increasing their confidence.
Gabriel Jesus scored two goals, and Sergio Aguero unlocked Liverpool’s defense. The guests scored at least two goals in 3 out of 4 matches played in the Premier League so far. Manchester City will have to control the tempo of the game. The hosts know to be unpleasant if they start pressuring. Only unavailable player for Pep Guardiola is going to be Vincent Kompany who is injured for a long time. Ederson Moraes should be back in front of the net after a nasty kick in the game vs Liverpool.
Head to head matches
This is going to be the first meeting between the two sides. When Feyenoord was a regular member of the European competition, the Citizens were not participating them. In the later years, the Dutch team had many problems, and their rivals were constant in Europe.
Prediction for Feyenoord vs Manchester City tip
Despite the fact that Feyenoord has the home field advantage we believe that the Citizens are going to win this match. That would be our first pick. After defeating Liverpool, they will no doubt play with more confidence and desire. Also, in our opinion, the only thing lacking in their game were the goals, and now they came too.
For the second one, we would choose over 2.5 goals. As we are already said, the Dutch team is very offensive, and this could create a lot of opportunities on the both sides. We do not need to tell you that the Citizens are equally aggressive, and that is our main reason for this bet.
