Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Cars Jeans Stadion will host Sunday’s football game between Den Haag and Feyenoord, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Den Haag are stuck at the bottom of the standings with 16 points on their account, and, as a result, they have slim chances of securing the Eredivisie survival. The rock-bottom side are low on confidence following a 3-0 loss to Fortuna Sittard, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s clash.
The good news for the hosts is that Suriname international Shaquille Pinas returns from suspension. Feyenoord, on the other hand, aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Den Haag. Even though key midfielder Steven Berghuis is out of contention through suspension, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Rotterdammers.
Highlighted Player (Ravel Morrison):
Ravel Morrison is a product of the Manchester United football academy, who played for various European clubs before joining Den Haag in 2020. Morisson spent his youth career at Man Utd, but he did not see any game action with the Red Devils in the Premier League.
The attacking midfielder played for the likes of West Ham, Birmingham City, QPR, Cardiff City, Lazio, Atlas, Ostersund, Sheffield Utd, and Middlesbrough before moving to the Netherlands. Morisson made his Den Haag debut in a 2-0 loss to Vitesse on October 18, 2020. Speaking of his international career, it has to be noted that the Den Haag No. 5 has four caps with the England U21 team.
He played for the U16, U17, and U18 teams as well. Ravel Morrison has a dual citizenship, and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Jamaica at senior level.
Highlighted Team (Feyenoord):
Back in 1908 football club Wilhemina was founded in the pub De Vereeniging and they played their home games in blue-sleeved red shirts and white shorts. The club’s name was changed to Hillesluise in 1909 and soon they became RVV Celeritas.
Finally, in 1912 the club got a name SC Feijenoord. Feyenoord won their first Eredivisie trophy in 1924 and 75 years later they clinched their 14th domestic trophy, finishing the season 15 points clear of second-placed Willem II. De Trots van Zuid play their home games at De Kuip and the capacity of the venue is 51 117.
The club’s fiercest rivals are Ajax and the two teams face each other in der Klassieker. The likes of Craig Bellamy, Gerrard Fox, Wouter Bos and Raemon Sluiter are notable supporters of the club. It is well known that football legends Johan Cruyff, Ruud Gullit and Peter Houtman all played for Feyenoord in the past. De Trots van Zuid play their home games in red-white shirts and black shorts.
