Feyenoord are in great shape, they are defending a title in Dutch Eredivisie and are only team with maximum number of points there after four rounds, they are also most effective team in league with 12 goals scored while defense was also on high level, after starting victory in Super Cup over Vitesse after penalties they achieved continue with great results, in last round defeated Heracles on the road and fully deserved points in that game, however tonight in first round of Champions league group stage they will host strong Manchester City and i just doubt that will manage to avoid convincing defeat.
Feyenoord played in Europa league in last campaign but they disappointed there and failed to reach knockout stage, they collected only seven points out of six rounds and it won't be easy to achieve better results in strong group with Napoli and Manchester City but still should be able to end at least as third and continue in Europa league. Despite hosts are in great form i doubt that can earn points against strong guests which are coming here to win. Goaleeper Vermmer (0/0), defenders Nieuwkoop (0/0), Haps (3/0), forwards Jorgensen (4/1) and Basacikoglu (1/0) won't be available for this match due to injuries.
Manchester City on the other hand are in good form and here are coming after great victory over Liverpool, they had a bit of luck since had one player more on the pitch since 37th minute but still that was great victory, their third in Premier league out of four rounds, only in duel with Everton got a draw but there missed large number of chances and deserved more than only one point. To this game Citizens are coming as huge favorites, they reinforced their squad during this summer and have big ambitions for this season, i have no doubts that tonight can achieve another victory.
Visitors are one of candidates for the title in Premier league and that battle will be very exciting while also are main candidates for leading spot in Champions league group F, they are team which play great offensive football and i'm sure that can outplay Feyenoord tonight and extend their winning streak. Citizens have big ambitions for this season and they are in good form at this moment, i believe that here won't have much troubles to collect all three points. As for absent players, defender Kompany (3/0) and midfielder Toure (0/0) will both stay out while goalkeeper Ederson (4/0) is still in doubt after injury in last game with Liverpool.
Feyenoord had perfect start of the new season but now are facing with very strong opponents and i just doubt that can achieve positive outcome, simple difference in quality of these two sides is just to big, Manchester City seems great at the moment and everything except their convincing victory would be a surprise here.
