COMMENT

Manchester City kick off their Champions League campaign in Rotterdam on Wednesday night, aiming to get out of a pretty straight-forward group and go far beyond last season's second-round showing.

Sam Lee has followed City around Europe in recent seasons and is in the Netherlands ahead of a new season of European football for Pep Guardiola's side.

He believes City have one of the best starting XIs in Europe, and could take advantage of a comparatively weak crop of favourites this season - as long as they get out of the group (as they should) and get a little bit of luck in the draw.

And it would be best to avoid Real Madrid...

My preview of City's Champions League campaign, from the Feyenoord Stadion. Enjoy!
