The match between Vitesse and Feyenoord just might have the Cup final this season. Still, take two teams from Arnhem and Rotterdam each other before, namely in the quarterfinals. The Rotterdam are cup holder, but will still be more focused for this season to win the dish.
Vitesse: Draw visiting FC Groningen
Vitesse won the first game after the winter break convincingly FC Twente 3-1, but lost last round of play the team from Arnhem points in Groningen. In the Northern Leases Stadium watched the Arnhem after just six minutes at a disadvantage to an unfortunate own goal by Kelvin Leerdam. The Vitesse was unable to make all the equalizer before half, but four minutes after the tea break Navarone Foor drew the score level. The 24 year old midfielder born in Opheusden made so that the people of Arnhem a point about loved sent to the duel in the far north, but Foor was four minutes before the final whistle with red directly from the field.
Vitesse especially suggested in the first half disappointments against FC Groningen and according schmuck Kelvin Leerdam was Vitesse coach Henk Fraser fierce in the rest: “The rest we got our thunder, everyone individually about it.” Captain Guram Kashia received apparently most of its thunder Henk Fraser, because the captain was substituted at halftime. Fraser was absolutely not happy with the performance of his experienced defender, “Sometimes you try to irritate people. For me, the irritation was very high and I think I also have to make decisions. ”
Fraser must put it against Feyenoord without Navarone Foor. Foor lacks both the game against Feyenoord as against AZ on Sunday by his red card last weekend. Where Foor thus a suspension on his pants after his appearance in the Northern Leases Stadium, where Fraser against Feyenoord can just sit on the bench. The trainer kept referee Jeroen Manschot last weekend fooled, because Fraser Vitesse goalkeeper Eljoy Room had come up with an injury, but the KNVB does not examine the Fraser trick.
Probable lineup Vitesse
Cream; Leerdam, Kashia, van der Werff, Miazga; Nakamba, Yeini, Baker; Rashica, van Wolfswinkel, Tighadouini.
Feyenoord: Competition has probably the priority
Although none Feyenoord player will admit, the Premier League is obviously the top priority for the locals. Last season, Giovanni van Bronckhorst did along with his team to win the KNVB Cup, but the people of Rotterdam at the time were already disabled at this time in the title race. This season is not the case, and Van Bronckhorst sees his team at the top in the Eredivisie. The Rotterdam won last weekend laborious 1-0 Willem II but are now again one step closer to the first championship since 1999.
After the game in Kerkrade against Roda JC (0-2) Feyenoord last weekend also win at Willem II. Both the game against Roda JC Kerkrade as the game at De Kuip against Willem II was not great and that realizes van Bronckhorst too. “Against Willem II we were sloppy and we made wrong choices.” Said Feyenoord coach that is not satisfied with the results after the winter break. Feyenoord currently still five points ahead of pursuer Ajax and Rotterdam thus come closer to the title. Although there are still fifteen races on the program, Eljero Elia would have not even mentioned the title. “The scale, which is still very far away, we must continue to look good from match to match.” Said the winger who was important last matchday with the assist on Jens Toornstra.
The victory at home against Willem II again marked the fifth consecutive victory for Feyenoord. The Rotterdam went this season only four times back and lost in the league only one game – Go Ahead Eagles made in early November for the first lost match Feyenoord. Incidentally, the Rotterdam knew before the winter break, three days after the won cup match against ADO Den Haag, Vitesse 3-1 win at De Kuip.
