De Club aan de Maas lost 4-0 to the Slovakian side on Thursday evening, meaning the continental campaign is most likely over for them ahead of the rematch in front of the home crowd in Rotterdam.

What is particularly interesting is that such a dreadful performance came just days after Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men produced a strong defensive showing in the Super Cup victory over last year’s Eredivisie champions PSV.

Can the Dutch giants bounce back from such a horrific loss when they take on the recently-promoted De Graafschap side on Sunday afternoon at Stadion De Vijverberg?

De Graafschap vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head

  • This will be the first H2H match in two years for these two sides, following De Graafschap’s return to the elite class of the Dutch football.
  • Feyenoord were much more successful over the course of history winning 20 out of 28 matches against Superboeren.
  • Feyenoord bagged two or more goals in each of last four wins over De Graafschap.

De Graafschap vs Feyenoord: Prediction

The hosts earned the promotion through the Eerste Divisie play-offs in May. They dispatched Almere City 3-2 on aggregate thanks to a narrow 2-1 win in front of the home crowd.

However, the head coach Hen de Jing has reasons to be worried ahead of the season opener knowing that his men offered underwhelming showings in pre-season friendlies.

The Graafschap lost three and drew one of last four games even though the opposition mainly included lower-division sides.

Feyenoord were thriving in the final third during the off-season and they should really be in position to take advantage of the easier fixture to grab a statement victory at the start of the new campaign.

The Robin van Persie has been one of the standout performers in the pre-season and he should have plenty of space to deliver in the final third here.

The away win is the main bet at 1.57, while you can alternatively back van Persie to score anytime at the odds of 2.00.
