Feyenoord vs FC Emmen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.45 UK/ 16.45 CET
Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord had been enjoying their lonely stay in the third position for quite some time. The position affords a direct entry into the Europa League at the end of the season, and with Ajax and PSV in ominous form, that’s the best anyone could hope for. But now, Alkmaar has been slowly and steadily chipping away at their lead and is currently just three points away. Feyenoord has to act now.
Emmen is in the relegation zone, but not by a large margin. They are just one point off safety and have several teams going through bad patches just above them. If the team could pull off some decent performances in the remainder of the season, they can avoid disaster come this summer. But the plan will have to wait at least till next week, considering they are taking on Feyenoord, and on the road nonetheless.
