Manchester City are already through to the Champions League knockout rounds after four straight wins and can wrap up top spot in Group F by beating Feyenoord on home turf.

The Blues crushed the Dutch outfit 4-0 in Rotterdam at the start of the qualifying campaign and have continued to impress.

Feyenoord have shown signs of improvement but are yet to pick up a point and look out of their depth again here.

Anything other than a smooth home victory would be a surprise and we like 23/4 for a 3-0 scoreline for our Man City vs Feyenoord betting predictions.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

City were given a good test over two games against Serie A high-flyers Napoli, so the fact that they came through with 2-1 and 4-2 triumphs says a lot about their confidence and self-belief.

In Naples, Pep Guardiola’s side went behind and were then level at 2-2 heading into the last 20 minutes, but late goals from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling secured victory.

Whereas last term the Blues would often wilt under pressure when the going got tough, this season they are keeping their shape, doing the simple things well and making full use of their formidable talent.

This game does come in between two Premier League away matches, though, so City may settle for a solid, rather than spectacular success.

That view makes 33/20 for a home win and under 3.5 goals in the game fair value for our Man City vs Feyenoord betting tips.

A Look At Feyenoord’s Betting Odds

Feyenoord were pretty hapless in that opening loss to City and could only manage a stoppage-time consolation goal when going down 3-1 at Napoli.

However, there were some positive aspects to a 2-1 home loss to Shakhtar Donetsk and they again hit the front in a 3-1 defeat against the same opponents in the Ukraine.

“I see my team making steps forward every time,” said head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst. “If you can play like this away at Shakhtar, then you are improving. It’s only a shame we could not get a result from it.”

Domestic results show this is not a strong Feyenoord outfit, but they at least no longer appear overawed at this level.

Looking at the Man City vs Feyenoord odds, we like 19/10 for the hosts to score just once in the first half.
