LONDON Aug 4 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen edging back slightly at the open on Tuesday, with commodity shares under pressure from a recent drop in oil prices and concerns over China, which is the world's biggest metals consumer.

Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 to open down by 25-30 points, or 0.3 percent lower. Germany's DAX was seen opening down by 30-39 points, or 0.3 percent lower, while France's CAC 40 was expected to open down by 20 points, or 0.4 percent lower.

European equities had risen on Monday, shrugging off a slump in the Greek stock market which re-opened after a five-week shutdown, as some strong corporate results supported the broader market.
