Feyenoord Rotterdam – Statistics & Current Form
You might think Feyenoord Rotterdam is in chaos, at least at management level. Almost all bosses are currently only ordered interim. The only constant right now is coach Jaap Stam, who has taken the helm for only a quarter of a year. As a player, he was often the tower in battle and now he has to be a coach in Rotterdam as well.
It’s not bad at all. Especially at home Jaap Stam can not complain about the latest results. Feyenoord Rotterdam is still undefeated in their five competitive matches this season. In general, there was only one defeat in the eleven games in the young season, namely in the Europa League at the Glasgow Rangers.
Here and there, however, one remixed too often, because the team of Jaap Stam overall does not seem very stable. Many experts expect significantly more from this team in terms of quality in the squad. Nevertheless, we are considering using the odds of winning at home in the match between Feyenoord Rotterdam and AZ Alkmaar.
However, Feyenoord will have to be 90 minutes rather than last weekend in Emmen. Just twelve minutes later, Rotterdam beat Orkun Kökcü and Luciano Narsingh 2-0. Already at break Emmen had compensated and went after an hour even in the lead.
Only in the sixth minute of stoppage succeeded substitute Jens Toornstra the goal to 3: 3-final. These are games that no coach likes to see.
“Maybe we’ll be able to deliver a game with a little less drama on Thursday.” – Jaap Stam
That’s why Jaap Stam hopes his team will make a more confident showing on Thursday, without any dramatic moments.
Basically, Jaap Stam will not have to make any personnel changes. Maybe Jens Toornstra has earned a place in the starting eleven. It is only important to concentrate on work. In any case Feyenoord will have to do without Sven van Beek due to injury. Probably the young Colombian Luis Sinisterra can not make a comeback.
Expected formation of Feyenoord Rotterdam:
➱ Vermeer – Haps, Botteghin, Ie, Karsdorp – Tapia, Fer – Larsson, Kökcü, Berghuis – Narsingh
➱ Coach: Stam

Alkmaar – Statistics & Current Form
AZ Alkmaar has high standards. The team has some players who have a lot of experience, sometimes in the national team or in foreign leagues or even the Champions League. Therefore, it is not surprising this season that the team of Arne Slot is in the upper third of the Eredivisie.
Maybe someday an attack on the top of the table will be possible. For this, AZ is apparently still lacking in constancy at the moment, especially in foreign countries. In the last four away games Alkmaar had only one win after 90 minutes. After all, you could qualify with a 4-1 after extra time in Antwerp for the group stage of the Europa League.
Overall, just in the distance at AZ still a lot of air is up. As a result, the bookmakers, with their odds in the match between Feyenoord Rotterdam and Alkmaar, are leaning towards a home victory. Maybe that’s also because of AZ’s appearance last weekend.
At ADO The Hague Alkmaar strove for a happy 1-0 win. It was a game in which neither team deserved to win. So it came in the end well, how it had to come, because by an own goal in the closing phase won AZ with the scarcest of all results.
However, Arne Slot has spared some players. After the three points were bagged, the coach should have done everything right.
“We have a good group, the team is in good shape.” – Jordi Clasie
Such a dirty victory is also good for the psyche of the players. Jordi Clasie therefore states that the group is intact and that the team is in a very good shape.
The newcomer from Southampton, who played in Rotterdam for a long time, is likely to turn his back on the bench at his former club. This could also apply to Pantelis Hatzidiakos, because Fredrik Midtsjö and Ron Vlaar push after their breather in the starting eleven. Dani de Wit will probably stand there, too, despite a nose fracture from the match in The Hague.
Expected formation of Alkmaar:
➱ Bizot – Wijndal, Wuytens, Vlaar, Svensson – Midtsjö, Koopmeiners – Idrissi, de Wit, Stengs – Boadu
➱ Coach: Slot
