Our prediction for this match:
Feyenoord play host to Levante at their Stadion Feijenoord in a friendly game. The Dutch side have been scoring goals for fun in pre-season as they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Fenerbahce following a 5-0 win over Basel. Feyenoord are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Levante and we predict that they are going to give fans some cheer this weekend. Los Levantinos, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Bournemouth in their first warm-up game of the pre-season and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Feyenoord’s party in Rotterdam. It is well known that Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s troops have turned their stadium into a real fortress and we believe that they are going to record a routine win over the La Liga side.
