Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on De Kuip when Feyenoord and Slavia Prague face each other in Group E derby. Feyenoord have been scoring goals for fun in the Eredivisie of late, but they played out a goalless draw with Maccabi Haifa in their Conference League opener. All Diemers, Nelson, and Pedersen are likely to miss the game with injuries, while Nigeria international Dessers is pushing for a start. The opposition defenders should have duo Sinisterra – Til at bay.
Slavia Prague, on the other hand, have established themselves as the dominant force in the Czech top flight. The Red and Whites did well to beat Union Berlin in their first group game, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Hovorka, Hromada, Kacharaba, Kudela, Provod, and Takacs are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Fer):
After spending four years at Feyenoord, Leroy Fer joined FC Twente in 2011. On 13 July, 2013 Norwich City chiefs closed a four-year deal with Fer for a fee in the region of £4.4 million. The Dutch midfielder made 30 appearances for Norwich and he scored three goals for the Carrow Road outfit.
Following Norwich’s relegation from the elite division, the highly rated footballer went on to join Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2013/2014 campaign. The Dutch footballer scored eight goals in 48 appearances for QPR, but on 1 February 2016 he was sent on loan to Swansea City. Fer made his move to Swansea permanent five months later.
Leroy was born on 5 January, 1990 in Zoetemeer, Netherlands and he is 188 cm tall. His parents are originally from Curacao and his father Lesley was a baseball player. Speaking of his individual awards, Leroy Fer was named Rotterdam Talent of the Year in 2008.
Highlighted Team (Slavia Prague):
Slavia Prague is considered one of the most famous teams in Czech Republic. The Cervenobili won the Czechoslovak First League on 13 occasions and they lifted their fourth Czech First League in 2017. Despite winning the domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season, Slavia Prague eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League group stages as they were beaten by APOEL of Cyprus in the play-offs. Sparta Prague are regarded as Slavia’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the Prague derby.
The club was founded on November 2, 1892 and it has to be noted that the club was initially focused on cycling. In March 1896 Slavia Prague recorded their first ever victory, with the team beating AC Prague 5-0. The Cervenobili play their home games at Eden Arena and the capacity of the venue is 19.084 (football). Slavia Prague are well known for their red and white shirts and white shorts.
