Feyenoord won their first title since 1999 last season, but can they retain the trophy after a busy summer of outgoings? They managed to win the Dutch Super Cup against Vitesse last weekend, can they build on that with a victory over Twente? After putting together an impressive record against this weekend’s opponents, the reigning Dutch champions should get off to a strong start on Sunday afternoon.
Having won the last four matches between these two to nil, Feyenoord are likely to cruise to a victory on Sunday. They’re deserved favourites given the strength of their squad compared to Twente, especially after winning 88% of their home matches last term. That form is likely to continue here, even if Feyenoord aren’t favourites to recapture the title this term.
The champions have invested in their defence during the summer to ensure they don’t drop off at the back. They were hard to breach last term, winning to nil in 47% of their home matches. We can see them having a similar record this season, while they’re likely to kick off the season with a clean sheet since they’re hosting Twente.
The visitors drew a blank just seven times last season, but they failed to score in both meetings with Feyenoord. They failed to score five times on the road, while they lost to nil at three of the top six sides, including defeats at the top two. We expect a home win to nil here once again, which seems like great value at evens with bet365.
One man to keep an eye on here is Jens Toornstra, who had an impressive scoring record last season. He hit 14 goals from midfield last season, which all came at De Kuip. He scored those goals across 16 league starts at home for the champions, including a strike in a 2-0 win over Twente last term. We’re backing him to find the net here once again, he’s priced at 7/4 with bet365 to find the net. We’re also backing a 2-0 home win at 11/2 with bet365.
