Feyenoord vs FC Twente Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Feyenoord will be looking to begin their title defence in style when they welcome FC Twente at the Stadion Feijenoord on Sunday at lunchtime. Feyenoord head into this tie high on confidence following their penalty-shootout win over Vitesse in the Dutch Super Cup last weekend. On the other hand, FC Twente lost 2-0 on the road at Mainz 05 in a friendly game last weekend. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Feyenoord should be able to kick off their Eredivisie campaign with a victory here as their home form over the past eight months have been impeccable, and they also managed to beat Twente in each of their last three home meetings. Meanwhile, FC Twente had a terrible pre-season campaign, and it seems that they have major problems in finding the back of the net. I’m expecting Feyenoord to score at least two goals here and to keep a clean sheet.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord won their first Eredivisie title in the last 18 years last season and they also managed to collect their first piece of silverware this season, winning 4-2 on penalties over Vitesse in the Dutch Super Cup on Saturday. However, I’m expecting Feyenoord to struggle a bit this season as they have sold two of last season’s best defenders for a total fee of €29 million, as Terence Kongolo joined Monaco while Rick Karsdorp moved to Roma. The Rotterdammers have spent some of this money on five new players. They brought in Steven Berghuis from Watford for €6.5m, Ridgeciano Haps from AZ Alkmaar for €6m, Jeremiah St. Juste from SC Heerenveen for €4.8m, Sofyan Amrabat from FC Utrecht for €4m and Jean-Paul Boetius from Basel for €1.5m. In addition, Fiorentina’s right-back Kevin Diks has joined Feyenoord on a one-year loan deal. Feyenoord’s pre-season campaign has been decent as they have won three and lost one of their four friendlies. The Rotterdammers can definitely count on their home form ahead of this tie as they are currently on a 13-game winning streak across all competitions. In addition, Feyenoord have won their last three home meetings with FC Twente in the Eredivisie, scoring ten goals while conceding just once.

Feyenoord Team News

Dylan Vente, Cheick Toure, Bart Nieuwkoop, Sven van Beek and Bradley Jones are all doubts, but Kenneth Vermeer is still out through injury.

FC Twente Preview

Meanwhile, it seems that FC Twente have carried on their disappointing form from the previous Eredivisie campaign into their pre-season. They have only won two of their nine friendlies, but the most worrying fact is that they have failed to score a single goal in their most recent five fixtures. Last season, they have missed the Europa League places due to their poor run of form towards the end of the campaign, as they lost five of their last six league fixtures. They still finished in a comfortable 7th position in the league table with 45 points after 34 rounds. In terms of transfers, Twente have sold Kamohelo Mokotjo and Mateusz Klich this summer for a total fee of €2.7m while they only paid €400,000 for Tom Boere from FC Oss. However, Haris Vuckic, Alexander Laukart, Marko Kvasina and Danny Holla all came on free transfers. FC Twente have struggled to pick up victories on the road last season and their away form over the past ten months has seen them win just five victories in their last 20 away games across all competitions. In addition, Twente have suffered defeats in each of their last three visits to the Stadion Feijenoord, conceding at least two goals in each of these.

FC Twente Team News

Nikola Gjorgjev is the only doubtful player for Twente ahead of this tie.
