Feyenoord Rotterdam – Roda Kerkrade – Another duel of this Dutch qualifier winner where the host is a favorite to win. It is also shown by the table on which the current champion is quite far from the leader, but the fifth, while Roda in the fall zone is in the foreground with the same number of points as the “kicker”. Interestingly, both teams have been in the quarter finals, while in the championship of Feyenoord there is a series of four games without defeat, and Roda is three wins without a win. At the end of October, these rivals met for the first time this season and the match ended with a score of 1: 1.
It is already certain that Feyenoord will not defend the title last season, as the defeat for the leader is huge, but there is still a struggle to be the second and finish a new placement in the Champions League, which has not been shown this season, the only victory over Napoleon, when everything had already been resolved. The championships were good at the start, they were even first on the table for a while and then they broke into the crisis, five wins failed to beat anyone and in that row were four times losing while they lost on their field in the derby of Ajax.
It was also the last defeat, but there are too many unresolved results and therefore they have a great backlog before two wins again and with Heerenveen they just moved home, to declare Sparta in the derby with 7: 0. In the cup they won 3: 1 against Heracles and can be said to be in a good rhythm, but without hurt Hapsa, Botteghina and Neloma.
Roda has been in great trouble since the start of the season and will be happy if they manage to preserve their first-legged status because they have only triumphed so far. Immediately at the start it was clear that there was a struggle for survival because they lost the first six matches. Later they had another negative series of five games without a win, and now they are three wagers without triumph. In the Cup they went well and reached the quarterfinals, though in the eighth finals they had for the lower-level team, so it was no surprise that they had passed.
At the beginning of December they beat Heerenveen for the last time in the field with 2: 1, then with Groningen and two defeats, the team from the bottom of the table, Den Haag and Venla. The guests at the Den Haga had two leads and lost again with 3: 2, and Venlo beat them with 1: 0. On the list of injured are Paulissen, Djim, Gotz and Kum and could be a change compared to last round.
