The hosts started the new season in a dreadful fashion, losing 2-0 away at De Graafschap and they have already ended their European adventure losing 5-1 on aggregate to Slovakian Trencin.

Even though it’s still too early in the season, another defeat could ring for the alarm bells in Rotterdam. This is why a win over Excelsior would be of a huge significance for De Club aan de Maas ahead of a tough away fixture with Heerenveen in the third round.

The Kralingers, on the other side, enjoyed a fine spell of form in pre-season, but they failed to bring it to the inaugural official game of the season.

They bagged seven goals in back-to-back wins in friendlies against NAC Breda and AZ, but only to be held by recently-promoted Fortuna Sittard to a 1-1 draw eight days ago in front of the home crowd.

Feyenoord vs Excelsior: Head-to-head

  • Feyenoord have a brutal head to head record against Excelsior.
  • De Club aan de Maas won 17 of 20 meetings with Excelsior who have never managed to leave Rotterdam undefeated (11 wins in 11 games there for Feyenoord).
  • It is interesting to note that only one of last six head to head matches saw goals at both ends.
  • Feyenoord won each of last four home games against the Kralingers by at least three goals difference (30-4 total goal difference at Stadion Feijenoord).

Feyenoord vs Excelsior: Prediction

Based on everything written above, the standout bet would be Feyenoord to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.75.

The hosts are massive favourites if we look at the H2H record, but they’ve been very easy to break down at the start of the season which is why we believe the visitors should score a goal on the occasion.

The Kralingers bagged as many as seven in last two friendlies against Breda and AZ.

The Over 2.5 goals FT should really be a banker at the 1.47 odds, though. Three or more goals were seen in each of last five H2H games between these two sides in Rotterdam.

Feyenoord vs Excelsior: Bet Tips

  • Feyenoord to win & BTTS @ 7/5 (2.40)
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1/2 (1.50).
