Feyenoord vs Twente
Netherlands – Eredivisie, Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick-off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: De Kuip, Rotterdam.
Following the photo finish in the previous season, Feyenoord welcome Twente at De Kuip in their first Eredivisie game of the season.
Feyenoord had a shy preseason as they only took on two serious European teams – SC Freiburg, who beat them 1-0 and Spanish Real Sociedad, whom they beat with the same result.
However, Feyenoord have started off their season perfectly. Lifting Super Cup title after the penalty shootout raised the self-confidence of the whole team.
In addition to the domestic league, the home team will compete in UEFA Champions League, which will significantly burden them in the title defense.
Jones and Vermeer are out due to injuries while Toure and Vente are under the question mark.
Twente had a horrendous preseason. They only managed to beat two lower-league sides with serious teams causing massive troubles to them.
They drew Nordsjaelland 1-1 and Hanover 0-0, but they were easily outplayed by Everton, Bristol City and 1. FSV Mainz 05.
This season, Twente planned to fight for one of the top six spots in Eredivisie but taking their preseason into an account, they will be happy with a top half finish despite their ambitions.
Feyenoord vs Twente: Head-to-head
Feyenoord were excellent against Twente in the last five games wherein they recorded maximal performance of five victories. They allowed only two goals in the aforementioned five games.
Feyenoord vs Twente: Prediction
Feyenoord first match of the season could be crucial in their title defense. Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and even AZ Alkmaar are already breathing at their necks and the last season perfectly illustrated that every point could be crucial. The home side is definitely able to cover -1.75 handicap, plus the motivation is high and De Kuip is expected to be full.
