Our Go Ahead Eagles v Feyenoord predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest match odds.
Go Ahead Eagles
Go Ahead Eagles will be wanting a better result here following a 1-0 Eredivisie defeat in their last game at the hands of NEC.
In that game, Go Ahead Eagles managed 47% possession and 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. NEC had 17 attempts at goal with 7 on target. Ibrahim Cissoko (92') was the scorer for NEC.
A common feature of recent Go Ahead Eagles games is the number of nil scores.
From their prior six clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would have lost.
Heading into this fixture, Go Ahead Eagles have not won against Feyenoord in their previous 2 league games.
In their last fixture, Feyenoord drew 2-2 in the Eredivisie tie with PSV Eindhoven.
The only scorer from Feyenoord was Cyriel Dessers (86', 96'). Cody Gakpo (16', 29') scored for PSV Eindhoven.
The stats tell the story, and Feyenoord have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 6 goals in total. At the back, Feyenoord can certainly do much better. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, however.
Going into this contest, Feyenoord are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: Go Ahead Eagles
The Go Ahead Eagles boss Kees van Wonderen will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash thanks to a completely healthy group available to choose from.
In our view, Trots aan de IJssel will probably employ a 4-4-2 formation for this game, handing starts to Andries Noppert, Boyd Lucassen, Gerrit Nauber, Jay Idzes, Bas Kuipers, Mats Deijl, Philippe Rommens, Luuk Brouwers, Ragnar Oratmangoen, Inigo Cordoba and Isac Lidberg.
Team News: Feyenoord
From a largely healthy group, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Feyenoord boss Arne Slot to contend with. Justin Bijlow (Foot surgery) won’t be in action. Tyrell Malacia will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
From our viewpoint, De club aan de Maas appear most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 formation, starting the game with Ofir Marciano, M. Holmgren Pedersen, Gernot Trauner, Lutsharel Geertruida, Ramon Hendriks, Fredrik Aursnes, Jens Toornstra, Jorrit Hendrix, Patrik Waalemark, Bryan Linssen and Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
We feel that in this game, Feyenoord have it within them to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
However, Go Ahead Eagles might well find it a difficult task to get goals of their own but we think it’s quite likely that they will be converting at least once here, too.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 1-3 margin for Feyenoord at the end of the match.
