  • Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam)

Feyenoord have mostly been right behind giants PSV and Ajax in recent years, but it looks like they could finally take the lead in the Eredivisie this season. The Club on the Meuse, as this club is nicknamed, was in great form just before the interruption of the championship and it seems that the one-month break due to the World Cup disturbed them, as they drew 1-1 against Utrecht and missed a nice opportunity to detach from the competition, so that their points gap remained the same and amounts to only three points compared to PSV and Ajax, who are breathing down their necks.

Meanwhile, PEC Zwolle left the Eredivisie quite easily last season for the first time in 10 years, finishing in last place, so their primary goal will be an express return to the company of the best. As things currently stand, the "Blauwwingers" are certainly stepping towards the return to the elite rank, since at the moment they occupy the second place (direct promotion) in the Eerste Divisie table (second tier) with 41 points won, which is seven points more than the third-placed Maastricht and only three points behind the current leader Heracles, with a match less.

Feyenoord vs PEC Zwolle Betting Tips: BTTS - NO

In addition to undeniable quality, tradition is also on Feyenoord's side, bearing in mind that the Rotterdam club have celebrated against PEC Zwolle in each of their last six clashes, including both last season (4-0 at home / 2-1 away).

If there is one stadium that is a real nightmare for PEC Zwolle, then it's "De Kuip". Namely, Feyenoord have hosted them 14 times so far, and as many as 13 of those ended in favor of the Rotterdam club, with one draw.

To make matters worse for the guests, the popular "Blauwwingers" not only did not achieve a single triumph at "De Kuip", but also failed to shake the net of Feyenoord for 11 years, so it is no wonder that the hosts are clear favorites.

Feyenoord definitely turned their stadium into an "impregnable fortress" this season. The Rotterdam club are still unbeaten at home in all competitions (W7, D3), keeping seven clean sheets from 10 home games.

PEC Zwolle managed to jump the first hurdle in this year's KNVB Beker. They narrowly beat third division side Hardenberg 1-0, but it looks like their story from this tournament ends here, as Feyenoord is a huge bite for them.

Feyenoord, the second most trophied club in the KNVB Becker with 13 trophies won, last climbed to the top of this tournament five years ago, so the Rotterdam club will aim to finally end that drought. The difference in quality is evident, so we hope that Feyenoord will be dominant in every segment and achieve a clean victory.

Key centre-back Gernot Trauner suffered a serious knee injury during the winter break and could miss a significant part of the second half of the season. His absence opens the door to Jacob Rasmussen.

What also worries coach Arne Slott is the injury to midfielder Quinten Timber. He got injured in the last warm-up game before the continuation of the competitive season, and his return is still unknown.
