Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over RKC, Feyenoord will look to melt Ajax’s advantage in the standings when they face Emmen on Matchday 4. The Rotterdammers are eyeing their third win of the process, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the visitors. Summer signing Danilo, who found the net in the last league fixture, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Dick Lukkien’s troops, on the other hand, did well to beat Utrecht 3-2 in round 3, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Feyenoord, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. In their last encounter in Rotterdam the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out. Both Metehan Guclu and Maikel Kieftenbeld are injured for the away side.
