Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Feyenoord play host to Excelsior at their De Kuip on day 14 of the new Jupiler League campaign. The Rotterdammers aim to stay in the title race, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the bottom-table side. Feyenoord have turned their stadium into a real fortress, but the favourites will have to prove their worth on the field. Head coach Arne Slot can count on all of his first-team regulars for Sunday’s encounter.
Excelsior, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing three of their last four league fixtures. Since the Kralingers have already suffered five defeats on the road this term, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Feyenoord’s party in Rotterdam. There are no fresh selection worries in the away team ahead of the trip to the principal port of the Netherlands.
