Feyenoord missed an opportunity to go six points clear at the top of the table as they were held by Utrecht in a draw last time around. They will be hoping though that this next trip to Groningen does not result in a similar scoreline. Their hosts are 22 points behind them on the points table right now with just three wins from 15 games played, seven fewer wins than their counterparts. Feyenoord have also managed to win or draw seven of their eight away games this season, which is the second-best record in Eredivisie when it comes to away form. Two of Groningen's three wins this season have come at this venue, so they might as well expect to salvage something on Sunday.

Groningen vs Feyenoord Betting Pick #1: BTTS

Groningen might be miles behind Feyenoord right now in 2022-23, but they have always given a very tough fight to their first-placed opponents. There has been no clear result (draw) in the last three meetings between these sides, and that is in fact a commendable feat for the home side. So, we believe that irrespective of whether they lose this game or not, Groningen will at least get one goal on the noon to celebrate. Moreover, Feyenoord have a poor defensive record off late too, conceding against four of their last five opponents, which goes well with our anticipated event.

Pick #2: Feyenoord to win

Utrecht did well to hold Feyenoord to a draw, but we do not believe that the Eredivisie leaders will blow up this chance to extend their lead at the top of the table. Groningen are far below Feyenoord's on-paper as well as on-field capabilities and the visitors should get their 11th win in 16 games, to move asteer of Ajax and PSV who are breathing below their necks at this moment. They have also scored 20 goals in their 8 away games played, the most in the league, and so outscoring Groningen after a goal conceded would not be a problem either.

Groningen Team News

Swedish striker Paulos Abraham will not be available for this big game against Feyenoord as he continues to recover from the muscle injury he faced a few weeks ago. The absence of defenders Nordin Musampa and Marin Sverko will also be impactful, as that leaves Groningen a bit thin at the back. Dennis van der Ree has no other unavailability to cater to, so this will be a decent first team that he could field against the best team in the land right now.

Players to watch: Ricardo Pepi (6 goals and 2 assists), Laros Duarte (17 chances created this season), Neraysho Kasanwirjo (1.3 interceptions per 90 mins)

Feyenoord Team News

Versatile midfielder Quinten Timber is out from this away trip to Groningen, as he is not fully match-fit after recovering from his leg injury. Timber, who can play as a defensive or attacking midfielder as well as a right-winger, will surely be available for selection in the next home game though. Austrian centre-back Gernot Trauner will also be unavailable for Arne Slot as the coach continues to be the favourite to win his first Eredivisie title (and Feyenoord's title after a long time too).

Players to watch: Danilo (8 goals and 2 assists), Orkuk Kokcu (36 chances created this season), Marcos Lopez (2.9 interceptions per 90 mins)
