Feyenoord vs Vitesse
Date: Sunday, 30th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord have long forgotten their August disappointment as they have gone from strength to strength since then. August was a bit of a nightmare for Feyenoord as they failed to qualify for Europa, losing 5-1 on aggregate to Trencin and also lost 2-0 to De Graafschap in the opening day of Eredivisie.
Feyenoord have now gone unbeaten in 6 competitive games, winning 5 of these games. They are 5 points behind leaders PSV as they have 13 points and are currently in the 3rd spot. Feyenoord are the 3rd joint highest scoring team with 14 goals to their name, this shows they can finish off any team if given the chance.
This was evident in their 4-0 win against Gemert in the midweek KNVB cup on Thursday night. They will hope to continue with their good run this weekend.
Vitesse have had more draws in this Eredivisie season so far, they have drawn 50% of the games played won twice and lost once. This have kept them in 7th spot with 9 points and 9 points behind Feyenoord.
This is the 3rd game between Vitesse and a top team, they lost 4-0 to Ajax and drew goalless against AZ. It will be good if they avoid a defeat in this game and thus boost their confidence for the Heracles game next week.
In the midweek, Vitesse crossed the KNVB first round as they defeated Volendam 2-1 away from home on Wednesday. This is a harder task for them and we don’t see them out playing Feyenoord.
