Feyenoord vs Willem II
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick-Off at 18:45 UK / 19:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord are going through another underwhelming Eredivisie campaign. They are nowhere near total challengers PSV and Ajax even though they did show strength in some matches against both heavyweights so far in the season.
De Club aan de Maas dropped too many points against weaker teams which is why they sit third with a 12-point deficit to second-played Ajax. Most of these slip-ups came on the road where Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men won only 3 of 13 games in the division.
Feyenoord were much more consistent in their own backyard. They won 11 and lost just 1 of 12 home outings in this term of Eredivisie. Such record explains the 1.20 odds offered by the bookies for Feyenoord’s win here.
Feyenoord vs Willem II: Head-to-head
Willem II held De Club aan de Maas to a 1-1 draw in the first head to head encounters in this term of Eredivisie.
Feyenoord were previously on an eight-win thread against Tricolores.
Willem II failed to find the back of the net in five of past seven encounters against Feyenoord.
De Club aan de Maas were super dominant in the history of home matches against Willem II (21 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats in 25 games in Rotterdam).
Feyenoord vs Willem II: Prediction
Willem II had their ups and downs so far in the season, but they can generally be satisfied knowing they are on a safe distance from the red zone. Adrie Koster’s troops hold 11th position in the league standings.
They dispatched De Graafschap 3-2 in front of the home crowd seven days ago. The win was inspired by teenager Alexander Isak who completed a brace on the evening.
Swedish youngster is a terrific addition to this Willem II squad and he already has four goals in seven appearances for Tricolores. Willem II have been very easy to break down in recent travels as they shipped seven goals in back-to-back away losses to Vitesse and Heerenveen.
Knowing about Feyenoord’s dominant form in Rotterdam, we can’t but back a comprehensive victory for the hosts in a high-scoring affair.
