Manchester City to kick off Champions League campaign with Feyenoord win

Manchester City produced a scinitllating display on Saturday to trounce 10-man Liverpool 5-0 in the Premier League, but Pep Guardiola's attentions will turn quickly to the biggest prize on his managerial radar on Wednesday evening as they head to The Netherlands to play Feyenoord in what should be a relatively comfortable start to their 2017/18 Champions League campaign.

  • Manchester City thrashed Liverpool 5-0 on Saturday
  • Feyenoord have won all four league matches this season
  • Manchester City were knocked out 6-6 on aggregate to Monaco in round of 16 last season

City Are Worthy Favourites

Knocked out in the round of 16 to Monaco in what was a sensational six-all thriller after two barnstorming matches, Manchester City will be looking to produce more fireworks in Europe's premier competition, and with Guardiola having added significant firepower to his ranks this season then it's no surprise to see them installed as the 9/20 favourites with Betway bookmakers.

Four wins from four matches in the Eredivisie this season has seen Feyenoord launch to the top of the table, but they showed last season when being knocked out of the group stages in the Europa League that they lack quality on the big stage, and despite home advantage they are not an attractive betting proposition at 8/1 with bet365.

Some may latch on to Betfair Sportsbook's 4/1 about a draw, but the manner in which City thumped Liverpool a few days ago then you have to feel they could be a genuine force in this year's Champions League, and you have to feel that they can start life in a fairly straightforward Group F with an authoritative victory.
Match Odds:

City Win And BTTS

Manchester City have often found life in the Champions League tough, and in particular keeping clean sheets has been difficult, as they showed last season when scoring 12 goals, but conceding 10 in the group stages, so you have to feel that William Hill's 2/1 about a City win and both teams scoring in 90 minutes should be the bet.

Feyenoord have already scored 12 goals in the league this season, which has seen them catapult to the top of the Dutch top-flight, and with City's defensive frailties still potentially unearthing themselves once again this year, then that 2/1 makes much more appeal than the huge odds-on about a City win.
BTTS & Win Odds:

Jesus Tipped To Score First

Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero showed real signs at the weekend that they could be a potentially lethal strikeforce this term, with the former scoring a brace against Liverpool, but with Guardiola taking him out of the action soon after his second then you have to feel he was keeping his star man safe for Wednesday's clash.

With that in mind, the Brazilian is turning into a world class striker at City, and he is the 100/30 favourite alongside Aguero with BetVictor, but it's Jesus who can ignite what should be an impressive City win, which could see them stamp their mark on a competition that they could blossom in this term.
