Feyenoord vs Venlo / Eredivisie – This is a match from the 11th round of the Dutch Eredivisie, and it will be played in Rotterdam between the third Feyenoord and eighth Venlo, which has 10 points backlog after 13 games played.

Feyenoord vs Venlo begins 06.12.2018 at 20:00 CET
However, the team of Feyenoord is now welcoming this clash with Venlo in a much better mood, with the proviso that their confidence increased after they last weekend celebrated on this same field in a big derby with 2-1 over the current PSV. However, they still lag 10 points behind, while the second Ajax is eight points away, so this is practically an impossible mission for coach van Bronxhorst and his players when it comes to struggle for title, even though they have one match less than the mentioned duo.
On the other hand, they now have a six-point advantage over the fourth Heracles, which means they have further strengthened their third position and now can welcome the team of Venlo completely relieved of any pressure. Especially because Feyenoord gas only recorded victories on their field this season, so they will certainly be very offensively oriented on Thursday night, with three new points, although they will probably not be able to count on defensive players Botteghin and Hapsa, midfielder Clasie and striker Jorgensen because of injuries.
Probable lineups Feyenoord: Bijlow – St.Juste, van Beek, van der Heijden, Malacia – Vilhena, Ayoub – Berghuis, Toornstra, Larsson – van Persie
As for the team of Venlo, they are currently in eighth place on the table, which is a very good placement for them, given that they struggled to survive in the Dutch elite rank last season. But they ended up just one step above the relegation zone, and to make sure that does not happen again, they had been much more engaged since the start this season, and they were even in the positions that lead to Europe for a while.
However, only one pint won in the previous four appearances has brought them the eighth place on the table, with the same number of points as the seventh Alkmaar. Otherwise, Venlo was defeated last weekend with 4-1 by Heracles, so coach Steijn will probably reach for some changes in the starting lineup now against Feyenoord. We should also add that he will not be able to count on the midfielder van Ooijen because of suspensions, while defenders Dekker and Janssen and midfielder Post are out of action due to injuries.
Probable lineups Venlo: Unnerstall – Rutten, Promes, Roseler, Borgmann – Susic, van Bruggen, Seuntjens – Opoku, Mlapa, Grot
