Feyenoord vs Standard Liege, a group G match, will be played on Thursday at 18:00 UK time, at the De Kuip stadium in Rotterdam. Feyenoord is fourth on the table, while Standard Liege is second, after one match played.
The Dutch team started the European season with a 2:0 defeat against Sevilla. This season started badly for them. After being second at the end of the previous domestic championship, this season they are only at the 12th spot on the table after seven rounds. They are going into this match to redeem themselves for a slow start in Europe and in Eredivisie. A comfortable victory against Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday should boost their confidence.
Khalid Boulahrouz and Lopes Cabral are reportedly injured for this match.
Standard started the European season successfully, with a comfortable win against underdogs Rijeka. In Jupiler league, things don’t look good for them. They are already nine points behind leading Anderlecht. The problems appeared mostly in the back, as they have conceded eight goals in their last 4 matches in the domestic league.
Standard, apparently, have high hopes for their Europa League participation, and their team isn’t strong enough to play two strong competitions at the highest level. So, maybe they will focus on this competition rather than the Jupiler league.
Ronnie Stam, Eyong Enoh and Jonathan Viera are reportedly injured or this match.
Feyenoord vs Standard Liege Match Prediction
The last time Feyenoord has beaten Standard they went on to win a European trophy. The home team hasn’t conceded a goal in their last three matches against Belgian teams. That, and the problems that Standard has with their defense, gives them an advantage in this match. So the surest thing is to bet on the home team.
