Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Feyenoord play host to NEC at their De Kuip in the Eredivisie round 7. The Rotterdammers aim to build on splendid back-to-back wins over PSV (4-0) and Heerenveen (3-1), and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the newcomers. Brian Linssen should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in the midweek triumph, but a man to watch in the home team will be fellow midfielder Guus Til, who scored a brace against Heerenveen.
Talented England attacker Reiss Nelson remains in the recovery room, while Mark Diemers is rated doubtful for the match. NEC, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Utrecht, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s game. All Proper, de Wolf, and van Eijden will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Fer):
After spending four years at Feyenoord, Leroy Fer joined FC Twente in 2011. On 13 July, 2013 Norwich City chiefs closed a four-year deal with Fer for a fee in the region of £4.4 million. The Dutch midfielder made 30 appearances for Norwich and he scored three goals for the Carrow Road outfit.
Following Norwich’s relegation from the elite division, the highly rated footballer went on to join Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2013/2014 campaign. The Dutch footballer scored eight goals in 48 appearances for QPR, but on 1 February 2016 he was sent on loan to Swansea City. Fer made his move to Swansea permanent five months later.
Leroy was born on 5 January, 1990 in Zoetemeer, Netherlands and he is 188 cm tall. His parents are originally from Curacao and his father Lesley was a baseball player. Speaking of his individual awards, Leroy Fer was named Rotterdam Talent of the Year in 2008.
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.
