Feyenoord Preview – Could Feyenoord gain a rare win over rivals and edge ahead of the in title race?

Arne Slot is aroun six months into his time in charge of Feyenoord and it’s been an impressive reign to date. There was a lot of controversy when Slot agreed to take over having been in charge of AZ but his showing exactly how he managed to get the Alkmaar club challenging for titles. Feyenoord come into this match in third spot and just a point behind leaders PSV. It’s their best start to a campaign for some time but the know this is the acid test.

Slot’s team are now unbeaten in their last nine league matches with six wins in that time. Their last defeat in the Eredivisie was on the 3rd of October away to Vitesse.

5/2
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Monday 13 December)

It is at home where Feyenoord have been particularly impressive. They are looking for a seventh straight win at the De Kuip in all competitions where they have not lost this season. Their last home loss was against Ajax back in May so they know what to expect as their biggest rivals come to town on Sunday.

Since that defeat, Feyenoord have played 11 home games in the league and they have won all but one of those – so they could barely have done any better in response to that heavy loss. It’s now the time to see whether they have what it takes to beat the champions.

Ajax Preview – Can champions bounce back after a disappointing home loss last time out?

Ajax made history in this year’s Champions League by becoming the first Dutch team to take maximum points from the group stage. They were imperious throughout and will face Benfica in the knockout stage next year. Despite that excellent showing in Europe they have not had it all their own way domestically. Last weekend’s home defeat to AZ means they are now off top spot.

Considering this is a team who have conceded only four goals in the league all season it is somewhat of a surprise to see them not steaming ahead of their rivals.

Away from home the champions have been excellent. They remain unbeaten with five wins and two draws, conceding just one goal. Their last away game in the league was also in Rotterdam as they edged past Sparta 1-0. Erik ten Hag will know his team will be in for an even tougher assignment this time around.

That applies particularly to Steven Berghhuis who made the switch to Ajax from Feyenoord in the summer. This will be his first return as he looks to contribute alongside the in form Sebastien Haller who has scored 20 goals between domestic and European competition so far.

Feyenoord vs Ajax Betting Advice

There is absolutely no love lost between these two sides but this match is particularly intriguing due to how close the Feyenoord are to Ajax this season. A win for the hosts would be more significant than just the three points, equally, if they don’t get anything then it will mean the status quo remains and they will be in Ajax’ shadow.

Ajax have won the last four meetings without conceding a goal whilst Feyenoord have won only one of the last 11 head to heads – losing the other 10.
