Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Dinamo Zagreb at Stadion Maksimir, Feyenoord will be looking to record their first win of the process when they host Wolfsberger at their De Kuip. The Eredivisie outfit have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, but they are surely capable of beating the Austrian outfit in Rotterdam. It has to be noted that Feyenoord scored 12 goals in total in the previous five home games in the Europa League.
Wolfsberger, on the other hand, shared the spoils with CSKA Moscow in the opening match of their Europa League campaign. The likes of Kuttin, Schofl, Sprangler, Vizinger, and GIorbelidze are all likely to miss the game with injury, and seeing that Wolfsberger experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Rapid Wien at the weekend, home win should be considered. Marcos Senesi is banned for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Steven Berghuis):
Born in Apeldoorn, Netherlands on December 19, 1991, Steven Berghuis is a Dutch winger who plays for Feyenoord in the Eredivisie. Berghuis played for the likes of Vitesse/AGOVV, WSV Apeldoorn, and Go Ahead Eagles during his youth career before joining Twente in 2009.
The 183-cm-tall footballer continued playing for the Reds at senior level. After ending his loan spell with VVV-Venlo, Steven Berghuis joined AZ Alkmaar in the summer of 2012, and three years later signed a deal with the Premier League club Watford. After making no more than nine appearances in the English top flight, Berghuis moved to Feyenoord in August 2016, and he has been playing De club aan de Maas ever since.
His main position is right winger, but he is capable of producing fine displays as both left winger and attacking midfielder as well. He made his Netherlands debut on May 27, 2016 in a 1-1 draw with the Republic of Ireland.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsberger):
Welcoming their rivals at Lavanttal-Arena, Wolfsberger are an Austrian side that compete in the Bundesliga, the Austrian top flight. GAM FC footballers wear black and blue shirts and black shorts when playing on home soil, whilst white is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Wolfsberger finished the 2018/2019 Austrian Bundesliga in fourth position in the standings and, as a result, they booked their place in the Europa League group stages for the first time ever. The Lavanttal-Arena outfit were placed in Group J, alongside Borussia M’gladbach, Roma and Istanbul Basaksehir.
GAM FC did well to win the Austrian First League in the 2011/2012 season, with the team finishing the process six points clear of second-placed Altach, but they have yet to win the Austrian Bundesliga trophy. It has to be noted that SV Ried and AT SV Wolfsberg are considered the club’s fiercest rivals.
