Manchester City – Feyenoord – UEFA Champions League: 21st November 2017
Let’s say City is already qualified and has an enviable offensive game, with Sane, Jesus and De Bruyne in full form. Lately, Pep Guardiola has also resolved the team’s defensive problems, and the fighters feel more and more comfortable when rivals attack. Even without Mendy, Delph and Sterling, the hosts should defeat a troubled adversary. Feyenoord will not play Van Heijden, Botteghin and Van Beek, injured, and Giovanni van Bronckhorst will hardly line up a first “11” competitive on Etihad.
Feyenoord received 12 goals in 4 rounds of the group
City has 4 wins in 4 games so far and on the tour it was comfortable to “De Kuip”. Feyenoord has four defeats in all matches and did not rise to the expected level, especially due to the lack of experience of the batch players. With 12 goals in 4 games, the Dutch will find it very difficult to keep the gate untouched while moving away from Manchester. Feyenoord comes after two consecutive draws in the championship, both 1-1, and white-red have been awarded in the last 7 official matches! It’s a pretty worrying statistic.
City comes after a clear 2-0 on Leicester’s court, a match in which the guests dominated the game with maturity and scored in the key moments of the game. With the exception of the draw (0-0) of the League Cup with Wolverhampton, “citizens” have a long series of wins and marks an automatic match match, so anything else besides a high score Tuesday night would be a surprise! In the tour was 4-0 for Pep Guardiola’s team, which will keep some players in this game.
