Bet9ja Preview: Feyenoord – Manchester City: Expect the Citizens to avoid defeat in Rotterdam

With a revamped squad at his disposal, Pep Guardiola will hope to make a statement in Europe this term

Manchester City make a trip to De Kuip where they take on Feyenoord in Group F of the Uefa Champions League.

De Stadionclub are back among Europe’s elite for the first time since the 2002/2003 season having lifted a 15th Eredivisie title last term. They are going to be up for a serious battle as they have to contend with Shakhtar Donetsk and Napoli to stand a chance of making it out of the group stage. Bet9ja quotes them at odds of (7.30) to win in front of home support.

City finished third in the Premier League last season to gain automatic qualification. It was a disappointing campaign for Pep Guardiola as he failed to win silverware. His men however trumped Liverpool 5-0 at the weekend and will be in confident mood to win in Rotterdam at odds of (1.42).

A draw is priced at (4.80) with the same firm.

Feyenoord have lost six of their last nine game games against English opposition. On the other side, Man City are winless in their last two visits to the Netherlands. Regardless of the setback, they are much stronger than their hosts and are poised to win either half at odds of (1.21).

Feyenoord have only won two of their last 15 Champions League games, drawing six and losing seven. With this in mind, Pep’s charges are (1.08) to avoid defeat in Rotterdam.

The Sky Blues have only kept five clean sheets in their previous 36 group games. This signals that they struggle defensively. Punters can therefore look towards both teams finding the back of the net at odds of (1.73) with Bet9ja.
