Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on De Kuip when Feyenoord and Twente face each other in the Eredivisie derby on Sunday. The hosts haven’t lost any of their last three home games and will aim to keep on climbing the Eredivise standings. Nonetheless, this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the Rotterdammers. Summer signing Danilo will pose a big threat to the opposition back-line as he has scored six goals and assisted one more this season, which makes him the leader of the Eredivisie goal-scoring chart. Both Quilindschy Hartman and Patrik Walemark are out of contention since the duo struggles with illness.
The Tukkers, on the other hand, will be aiming to build on a 3-0 win over fellow playoffs-chasing Vitesse, and they are likely to go all guns blazing against yet another top-table side. Anyhow, there is a big value on betting on both teams to score since both sides have been sharp in front of goal in the first half of the season. All Denilho Cleonise, Daan Rots and Dimitrios Limnios are sidelined with injuries, whilst Michal Sadílek faces race against the clock to be fit for this fixture.
Highlighted Player (Alireza Jahanbakhsh):
Born in Jirandeh, Iran on August 11 1990, Alireza Jahanbakhsh is a footballer who plays for AZ Alkmaar in Holland. Before AZ, Jahanbakhsh played for NEC in the Eredivisie, but he began his youth career at Payam Alborz Qazvin. Speaking of his senior debut, he made it with Damash Tehran in the 2010/2011 season.
In 2011 he moved to fellow Iranian club Damash Gilan and it has to be noted that he scored 10 goals in 44 appearances in the league for the club. The AZ Alkmaar winger, who is used as an attacking midfielder as well, scored 21 goals in 33 appearances in the Eredivisie in the 2017/2018 season. Speaking of his international career, Alireza JahanBakhsh scored two goals for Iran on the road to Russia and he will represent his homeland at the 2018 FIFA world cup finals.
Due to his style of play, Jahanbakhsh has always been compared to legendary Iranian footballer Mehdi Mahdavikia.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
