Feyenoord vs De Graafschap
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam).
Pregnant women and cardiac patients from Doetinchem should avoid this game. The Stadium Club put six past Ajax just a week before. Imagine what they will do against the absolute worst team on the road. Henk de Jong and his men really do deserve medals for undertaking this trip.
I Lancieri had opened the scoring at the De Kuip the last time Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men lined up in front of their fans. Almost everyone thought it would be a routine win for the mighty visitors. But no one was ready for what awaited next. One by one, the hosts scored six goals against possibly the best team in the Netherlands. By the time the final whistle was blown, the scoreline read 6-2.
And to this stadium is where the Superboeren’s next trip is. They remain the worst away team with the least points secured (2), least goals scored (2), and the most goals conceded (27). God have mercy on their souls.

Feyenoord vs De Graafschap Prediction
These are two squads from the extreme ends of the table. The Pride of the South is one of the famed ‘Big Three’ along with PSV and Ajax, while the Super Farmers are already prepared for their exit to Eerste Divisie. On top of this, De Stadionclub plays with home advantage. There’s no possible scenario in which the visitors would survive this tie.
They have not won a single official game on the road this season. In the league, all they have managed till now is just two points, from two measly draws. And both stalemates came against lower-tier teams. In every other away tie, the team suffered losses.
Now, they are up against a team that has lost just a single game at home in 2018/19. The hosts have recorded 18 wins from their last 20 appearances at this stadium. Of the two games that they failed to win, one was a draw in the Europa League.
This Saturday, expect the guests to concede in both the halves and to lose both of it as well. Count them lucky if they are able to get a peek at the opposition goal post.
