Feyenoord is returning to the Champions League, after having won the Dutch league last season, on the last match of the season!
This is a title that Feyenoord hadn’t won for a long time. This way, the team returns to the Champions League after a few years where they weren’t able to take part in this competition.
Their roster is reasonable, they have some quality, and Vilhena is an interesting player along with their great Danish striker up front.
Naturally, they expect some difficulties on this return to the Champions League, because their group is not easy and they have a tough test already in this 1st match, since Manchester City is on a higher level.
Last year, Feyenoord was in the group stage of the Europa League, where they even faced Manchester United, beating them at home but then being demolished at Old Trafford.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City isn’t concealing their ambition for this competition. They have a very expensive squad and Guardiola intends to take City to the final stage of this competition.
City hasn’t had a particularly easy start of the season, and their exhibitions haven’t been great.
The English team is theoretically the strongest one in this group, but Napoli and Shakhtar can be tough obstacles to overcome.
City knows that to win in Rotterdam they will have to play a bit better and if they do, then I believe they will end up winning this match, because the difficulty level against the Ukrainians or the Italians will be a lot higher and tougher.
Feyenoord vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It will not be a very easy match, but I see Manchester City, possibly with an uglier performance, getting the win in the Netherlands and being able to defeat the Dutch champions.
Feyenoord has a good attack, but against Manchester City they won’t be able to have much control, even more because as we all know, Guardiola likes his teams to have a lot of ball possession and this Feyenoord can only bother them on set pieces or counter-attacks.
On City’s attack we have young talents, but also some experienced players and I believe that if they are patient enough, they will end up winning this encounter.
