Sunday’s Eredivisie action comes to a close, with Breda’s visit to Rotterdam to face one of the classic Eredivisie sides, Feyenoord.
Feyenoord put their opening day woes to bed after registering back-to-back Eredivisie wins over Excelsior (0-3) and Heerenveen (5-3). However, the free-scoring Rotterdammers will not take anything for granted here against a Breda side who completed their first-ever league double over the hosts last season.
Taking into consideration Feyenoord’s tremendous home form in their last 19 games (W15, D3, L1) across all competitions, this one is looking very predictable already. Coupled with Breda’s run of just one win in their last 15 away Eredivisie games (W1, D6, L8), it becomes difficult to foresee the visitors coming away with anything here.
In their most recent away games against last season’s top four, Breda have conceded 12 goals. This is quite a concerning stat, considering AZ put five past them on the opening day. So too is the fact that Feyenoord boast a goal difference of +88 at home to Breda across their 49 league meetings at De Kuip.
Players to watchJens Toornstra bagged his first two goals of the season last time out – the midfielder has scored 22 goals in 66 Eredivisie appearances over the past two seasons for Feyenoord.
Breda’s Mitchell te Vrede needs to forget about his penalty miss last time out as he comes up against his former club.
Stat attack: Instability? Breda’s class of 2018/19 became just the third Eredivisie team in history to start a different goalkeeper for each of their first three games.
The teams are on a combined run of 16 Eredivisie matches (out of 19) that have each produced over 2.5 goals in total.
This could end up being a long afternoon for the visitors, who have won here just once in 49 league visits (W1, D13, L35).
