Feyenoord appear to have done the hard work in Switzerland last week and will be hoping to avoid any dramas as Luzern attempt to salvage some positive from the tie.

Feyenoord Preview – Are Feyenoord set to assert their dominance and put another big score on their opponents?

Arne Slot was much sought after following his successful time in charge of AZ. He led that Alkmaar club to top spot in the curtailed season of 2019/20 and had them going well again last season until agreeing a pre-contract with Feyenoord and being relieved of his duties. That time out the game might be a blessing in disguise for both coach and club as it would have allowed Slot to dedicate six months to prepping before taking over at De Kuip.

Slot’s first competitive game in charge of Feyenoord was against KF Drita from Kosovo. They eventually seen that opponent off courtesy of a 3-2 win at home following a goalless first leg. Feyenoord had to rely on Guus Til to score a hat-trick including a 90th minute winner to prevail. Til is known to Slot from their time at AZ and the midfielder has made a perfect start at his new club – Til also scored twice in the first leg against Luzern.

Feyenoord to score in both halves
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 10 August)

There’s a lot of new faces in this squad including Alireza Jahanbakhsh who has joined from Brighton. The Iranian will look to fill the boots of Steven Berghuis who made the move to arch rivals Ajax in the summer. Berghuis reached double figures in the Eredivisie in each of his last four seasons.

Feyenoord’s confidence will have been boosted further following a 2-1 win against Atletico Madrid in a friendly game at the weekend ahead of their league campaign starting on Sunday.

Luzern Preview – Could Luzern avenge the first leg defeat and restore some pride?

Luzern’s qualification campaign for the Europa Conference League began against Feyenoord and it looks like it will come to an end against the same opponent. A 3-0 loss at home (regardless if away goals count or not) is not giving much hope they can reach the playoff stage and continue their European journey.

Despite finishing in fifth place in the Super League last season, Luzern qualified for this competition via winning their first ever Swiss Cup. It was a notable achievement for Fabio Celestini.

It’s been a challenging start to proceedings this season, though. Luzern find themselves second bottom with just one point from their first three games. Conceding goals is a major issue for them so far having allowed nine goals in three league matches as well as the same number shipped last week.

Celestini will be realistic enough to know this tie is probably beyond them so it’s about ensuring pride is intact and Luzern are able to concentrate on picking up results and points in their domestic campaign which continues away to Servette at the weekend.

Feyenoord vs Luzern Betting Advice

This tie is essentially over and it’s just about playing out this second leg. Feyenoord have shown already there are goals after Berghuis and will be looking to continue that form ahead of the league campaign starting this weekend and the likely matching against Elfsborg or Velez for a place in the group stages of the Europa Conference League.

Luzern will feel this is beyond them barring miracles but they will want to shore things up after a really leaky start in defence.


Key Facts – Feyenoord vs Luzern Betting Tip

  • Feyenoord have started life well under new coach Arne Slot and should progress with a minimum of fuss
  • Luzern are conceding three goals per game on average so far this season
  • The winners of this tie will face either Elfsborg of Sweden or Bosnian outfit Velez for a place in the group stage


There are goals in this one on the evidence we’ve seen so far. Feyenoord should stroll to victory and take them to do so with at least three goals in the match.
