Feyenoord will look to build on the last weekend’s win when they host RKC Waalwijk in round 13 of the current Eredivise season at De Kuip, on Sunday night (IST).
Four wins, five draws and three defeats; that’s how Feyenoord have performed so far this season. It’s fair to say, that the team of this profile, Feyenoord have had a very average season. But the home team will take confidence from their last weekend’s performance where they looked a well-knit unit from on both ends of the pitch. They ended their three-game winless run with a convincing 0-3 win against VVV-Venlo last weekend. That was their second clean sheet of the season.
RKC Waalwijk, on the other hand, are propping up the table heading into this match. They have just one win in the first 12 games, with them losing 10 of those games. But interestingly, the visitors recorded its first win of the season last weekend when they beat Heracles, a team in the top half of the table, 2-0 to earn all three points fo the first time. Still, there is a lot of work to do for Waalwijk in its pursuit of safety. As things stand, six points separate them from the relegation play-offs.
Visitors: RKLC Waalwijk
Match Timing: November 10, 09:45 PM
Venue: De Kuip
Steven Berghuis: Of the 22 goals Feyenoord have managed from the first 12 games, seven have come from Steven Berghuis’ boots, including the in the last two games. Certainly a man-in-form.
Sam Larsson: He may have fired blank in the last six league games but Larsson is a very important player in this team.
Luciano Narsingh: The 29-year-old is a very good passer of the ball. He remains a threat in front of the goal.
While from Waalwijk, Stijn Spierings and Clint Leemans are the most in-form players.
Feyenoord: Sven van Beek is the only player on Feyenoord’s injury list at the moment. We expect Dick Advocaat to make little or no changes to the line-up which featured last weekend.
RKC Waalwijk: The visitors have a clean bill of health with all the first-team players available for selection.
Feyenoord have won six of its last 8 meetings against Waalwijk.
Waalwijk are without a clean sheet in away games this season, while thye have conceded at least twice in the last six matches on the road.
Both the teams come into this match with winds on their sails after recording elusive wins in their respective games last time around. But Feyenoord have a good home record against Waalwijk and will look to keep it that way.
