Eredivisie leaders Feyenoord should be expected to maintain their lead at the summit of the division when they host NEC at Stadion Feijenoord. 

Following a 1:1 draw with great rivals Ajax this past weekend, Feyenoord remain on top of the Eredivisie, two points clear of second-placed AZ and three clear of PSV. Champions Ajax remains fifth but very much in contention, just 5 points behind De club aan de Maas.

Feyenoord vs NEC Nijmegen Betting Tips: Feyenoord to win

Sunday´s draw with Ajax extended Feyenoord´s unbeaten run to 10 league matches with 6 wins and 4 draws achieved since a 4:3 loss at PSV in September. That defeat remains the only blemish on their Eredivise campaign this far.

On their own patch, Feyenoord have a similar kind of record with 5 wins and 3 draws in 8 league matches played this season, and they will be fancied to extend their unbeaten run with the visit of an NEC side currently ninth in the league standings. 

While the away side have enjoyed a decent run of form that sees them unbeaten in each of their previous 5 league games, the visitors have struggled on their travels, particularly in front of goal, with just two goals scored in their last 7 away Eredivisie matches. NEC had bagged 4 on the road on the opening day but have since failed to offer much of an attacking threat away from home. 4 of those 7 games did finish level, suggesting NEC are not the easiest side to beat.

Historically, Feyenoord have a strong record in this fixture. Unbeaten in their six most recent meetings, the hosts have also won each of their last 5 home games against NEC, including an enthralling 5:3 victory when last meeting at the Stadion Feijenoord.

With that in mind, we´re confidently backing Arend Slot´s side to maintain their strong home form with another three points against a shot-shy NEC.
