Over their past 6 games, a total of 24 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 4 goals per game) with 18 of them accredited to De club aan de Maas.

- are unbeaten in the league by FC Twente in their previous 10 games. A long run without a loss.
- have not been beaten in their last 9 league matches at home. It's been impressive.

Ron Jans's FC Twente have seen their goal attempts be successful a total of 7 times throughout their latest six matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes comes to 8.

A combined total of 18 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 15 for De club aan de Maas and 3 for De Tukkers. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.

Team News: Feyenoord
Christian Conteh (Knock), Tyrell Malacia (Hip Injury), Uros Spajic (Ankle Injury), Luis Sinisterra (Knee Injury) and Sven van Beek (Ankle Surgery) won’t be playing for Feyenoord gaffer Dick Advocaat.
We are thinking that De club aan de Maas may well opt for a 4-3-3 system for the game, beginning the first half with Justin Bijlow, Ridgeciano Haps, Marcos Senesi, Lutsharel Geertruida, Bart Nieuwkoop, Mark Diemers, Leroy Fer, Orkun Kökcü, Brian Linssen, Nicolai Jorgensen and Steven Berghuis.
Team News: FC Twente
With a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, FC Twente boss Ron Jans does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash.
We reckon that De Tukkers will likely utilise a 4-3-3 system, starting Joel Drommel, Tyronne Ebuehi, Julio Pleguezuelo, Xandro Schenk, Jayden Oosterwolde, Wout Brama, Godfried Roemeratoe, Jesse Bosch, Vaclav Cerny, Danilo Pereira da Silva and Queensy Menig.
It’s likely that FC Twente will have a tough assignment to get a goal against a Feyenoord side who will most probably set up a big win.
We think that it’s going to be a very comprehensive 3-0 win for Feyenoord by the conclusion of the match.
