Excelsior vs Feyenoord by Meese

Excelsior seems to be in a pretty decent form now, as the team comes from their third consecutive victory, winning a bit surprisingly away from home against NEC Nijmegen two weeks ago with a 1:0 result in the most recent Eredivisie game.

Only goal was scored in 58th minute via van Duinen, in a very defensive game where neither of the teams risked more and the final result could have been very different actually on some other day. Excelsior climbed up at the table with these three victories, being now six points above relegating placed Sparta Rotterdam and Nijmegen, with just two rounds till the end.

Excelsior should be playing in 4-2-3-1 formation, with Duinen as central striker, plus Hasselbain, Ribeiro and Elbers as offensive midfielders. Central midfielder Hicha Faik (22/4) should be only injury absentee for the home team this time out.

Feyenoord managed to record another victory two weeks ago, in their latest Eredivisie clash as the team visited Vitesse and took a three pointer following a 2:0 victory, without much of the problems experienced. They entered the game very strongly, took the double lead with goals from Jorgensen inside first thirty minutes (in tenth and 28th minute) and sealed the defeal early.

They played the rest of the match somehow in order to save energy for next clashes, as the team now scomes from two consecutive victories (previous also with a 2:0 result at home against Utrecht), as the team now has four points more than second placed Ajax, with just two rounds till the end. This means that the team will be lifting the title in case they managed to take a victory in this one, so without any doubt, that's their only target for this one.

Visitors should be set in 4-3-3 formation, with Berghuis and Toornstra on the wings, plus Jorgensen as central striker this time. Central defender Sven van Beek is missing due injury and didn't play so far in the season, while injured is also offensive midfielder Bilal Basacikoglu (23/0).

  • Feyenoord have won their last 9 matches against Excelsior.
  • Feyenoord have scored at least 3 goals in their last 7 matches against Excelsior.

A victory for Feyenoord would secure them a title of Dutch championship this season and under such circumstances, I see them being complete favorite for this one. Additionally, the game should be as open as possible in some kind of festival atmosphere.

    Until 2015 Excelsior was a satellite club of Feyenoord and Feyenoord gave them money and players, so no chance for surprise here! They will be the champions of the Netherlands after this round :))
