The 42-year-old former Dutch international, who guided the team to the Eredivisie title last season, is looking forward to going up against Pep Guardiola’s expensively-assembled City side at De Kuip in the Group F opener on Wednesday.
Van Bronckhorst feels the Premier League side have the credentials to win the Champions League, but he believes that his Feyenoord side can secure a result in the encounter.
He said: “It’s a big challenge to play against a club that can win the Champions League. We form a good collective and we know that we can certainly get a good result at home. We have often beaten big teams here in recent years.”
He added: “The best scenario? That we win of course. A win is possible, that is always possible. But we have to be realistic. It will be very tough because we are really going to play a top team.
“We have looked at City’s strengths and at where we can get some joy. For us it’s about keeping it tight and capitalising when we can break out.”
Striker Andy Williams could make his first Doncaster appearance for nearly four months in Monday's League One Yorkshire derby at home to Bradford.
Jamal Campbell-Ryce could be part of Carlisle's squad for the match against Crawley.
