Feyenoord vs Utrecht Prediction & Betting tips
Feyenoord will play a home match against FC Utrecht on Sunday-afternoon. If the visitors still want to seriously throw a fourth place, then this game must be won by them.
Feyenoord did something this week that is not very common in football. The Rotterdammers left for Marbella to finish a training camp there. Normally, these camps are only invested in preparation and in the winter break. Whether it has been successful will mainly be judged after the cup final against AZ Alkmaar, which will be on the program next week.
In recent weeks, Feyenoord – which is in fact playing a season that is not very good enough – shows some signs of recovery. Thus, the last four games were all won. Last week, the Rotterdammers were too strong for FC Twente (1-3). Steven Berghuis was goal scorer in Enschede, although he also took his fifth yellow card of the season, which caused him to be injured. ‘We have enough players who can play there,’ Giovanni van Bronckhorst spoke about the possible replacements of Berghuis. Perhaps Jean-Paul Boëtius moves to the right flank and Sam Larsson starts on the left.
FC Utrecht came last week no further than a 3-3 draw in the home game against ADO Den Haag. Despite Zakaria Labyad only scoring the equalizer in injury time, it was a disappointing result for the Domstedelingen. The deficit to number four Feyenoord increased to five points, with four games to play. A win in Rotterdam is therefore required. ‘In the event of a win, we can fall behind on two points and it will be a few more exciting last matches,’ trainer Jean-Paul de Jong reckoned correctly.
Gyrano Kerk, the goal scorer in the previous confrontation between both teams (1-1), is suspended for a game after his fifth yellow card. Yassin Ayoub, who transfers to Feyenoord in the summer, has been with the group all week long and can be deployed on Sunday. There are no new absences at Utrecht. However, there is the three that has been out of circulation for a long time.
