Manchester City begin their Champions League campaign with a tricky trip to face Feyenoord and will hope to avoid the same fate neighbours United suffered when visiting Rotterdam 12 months ago.

The Red Devils went down 1-0 here in the Europa League and there is sure to be a repeat of the white-hot atmosphere that greeted them in Holland.

However, United were the better team for much of that match and we reckon the Blues can be more clinical in front of goal, with 29/4 for a 2-1 away win the first of our Feyenoord vs Man City betting predictions.

A Look At Feyenoord’s Betting Odds

Feyenoord eventually failed to make it through that Europa League group, going down 4-0 at Old Trafford and losing 1-0 twice to Fenerbahce.

They were unbeaten at home in the Dutch Eredivisie, though, securing 15 wins and two draws at this venue as they edged out Ajax for top spot by a point.

As happens to many clubs from the Netherlands, though, richer teams did come calling over the summer, with defenders Terence Kongolo and Rick Karsdorp departing for Monaco and Roma respectively.

Securing the services of loan star Steven Berghuis on a permanent basis from Watford was a boost, while Eredivisie Golden Boot winner Nicolai Jorgensen has continued to impress for his club and Denmark this term.

Their presence means the home team should be a threat going forward, but preference is still for an away win and both teams to score at 2/1 in our Feyenoord vs Man City betting tips.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

Manchester City have consistently made it through to the knockout stages of this competition in recent years and the addition of flying full-backs Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy should help them continue that trend.

Pep Guardiola was hoping to also bring in Alexis Sanchez after clearing out some of the club’s dead wood but there is still an abundance of attacking talent in this squad.

The Blues weren’t overly-convincing in the first few weeks of the Premier League season, but we’re expecting a rise in intensity for this tournament.

Shakhtar Donetsk and Napoli complete a solid but definitely winnable section and coming away from the Netherlands with maximum points would set City up nicely.

For those wanting to hedge their correct score bets, 31/10 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 stands out from the Feyenoord vs Man City odds.
