Feyenoord vs Trencin Analysis for Prediction

Feyenoord faithful travelled 1240 kms to watch their team’s first competitive match of the season, but they left the beautiful city of Trencin with bags full of disappointment.

The full-time scored read 4-0, in favor of AS Trencin, a team finished 5th in Slovakia’s Fortuna Liga last season.

Things then went to worse for the Dutch side this weekend, with their opening league game of the campaign ending in another defeat. Graafschap, a promoted side for the season thumped them 2-0.

Is Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s position as head-coach under threat, so early in a season?

On the flipside, there is plenty of positives in Trencin camp, with the team coming to Netherlands on the back of 4 wins and 1 draw from 5 Europa League fixtures this season, scored 12 and conceded just 2.

The Slovakian outfit do presents substantial threat while playing on the road as well (4 wins & 1 loss); despite starting most of the Europa League games as huge underdogs.

To sum it up, Feyenoord have little chance to turn this game in their favour, further weighed down by the absence of injured Nicolai Jorgensen and Renato Tapia.

Feyenoord vs Trencin Match Background

Dutch giants Feyenoord have been in good form recently where their pre-season matches have gone very well, losing just 1 game and this should give the team lots of confidence coming into this crucial Europa League qualifier.

They will take on Slovakians Trencin and Feyenoord at least over 2 legs will be expected to qualify and participate in the play offs.

Trencin scored 5 goals in the 2nd qualifying round to get here, so they won’t be goal shy but this is a big step up for the Slovakian side and they will know it.

Their small ground only holds 3.500 and they will need everyone to be on their side on Thursday night.
