There is some rather strange symmetry in the way both Manchester City and Feyenoord have performed over the course of this Champions League campaign. While Pep Guardiola’s side have won every game, scoring 12 and conceding just three, Feyenoord sit bottom with a 100% record of their own, but losing all of their games and scoring 3, conceding 12.

This one should be among the easiest to call on paper. City are breaking records in England this season and are beginning to look like genuine European contenders too. As the stats show, they have been scary in attack this season and a big reason for that is the huge array of options at Guardiola’s disposal. Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane have all been amongst the goals this season and the boss knows he can pick any of them to do the business when selected.

Although Jesus scored at Leicester at the weekend, we think Aguero will feature and be the man to lead City to another comfortable win at the Etihad Stadium.

Form

Both domestically and in Europe, City have been imperious all season. They are averaging over three goals per game in all competitions and look almost impossible to stop all season. Their double header against Napoli was expected to be their biggest Champions League test, but they past both games with flying colours, scoring four in the Stadio San Paolo last time out. Defensively, they are looking a little weaker than earlier in the campaign, but with that 100% record still in tact in Europe, they are looking like going all the way in the biggest competition of all.

There could hardly be more of a contrast for Feyenoord, who have barely competed in any of their Champions League games on their return. Funnily enough, it was they who were top seeds after an impressive Eredivisie title success under former Barcelona defender Gio van Bronkhorst, but it appears even that defence has been a disaster. Having played 12 games, they are 11 points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven, who have a game in hand and sit in 6th place. It is certainly tough to muster up a case for backing them against arguably Europe’s most impressive team right now.

Team News 

City will be without John Stones, who suffered a thigh injury in the win over Leicester at the weekend, meaning Eliaquim Mangala will get a likely start alongside either Vincent Kompany or Nicolas Otamendi in defence. Raheem Sterling is a minor doubt with back trouble but could feature, while Benjamin Mendy remains the only long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Feyenoord could find themselves in something of a defensive injury crisis with three centre backs unlikely to play. Jan-Arie van der Heijden has an unknown ‘wound’, as does Mats Knoester, and Eric Botteghin has a knee problem which has kept him out since September.
