The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Feyenoord to Win

Feyenoord have reached the Europa League group stage in each of the last two seasons and the Dutch outfit will expect to coast through the qualifiers to make the same phase of the inaugural Europa Conference League this year. Drita meanwhile, have little continental experience to draw from and we recommend opposing them when a much stronger Feyenoord team visits the Stadiumi Fadil Vokrri.

Over 1.5 Feyenoord Team Goals

Feyenoord may have lost key performer Steven Berghuis to Ajax this week, however, they still have enough firepower to blow holes in the Drita defence on Thursday. With players like Bryan Linssen, Jens Toornstra and Lutsharel Geertruida in the XI, Feyenoord carry goal-threatening stars all over the pitch and they averaged 1.77 goals per 90 minutes across three competitions last term.

Over 2.5 Goals

Feyenoord provided plenty of entertainment last term and their domestic and European fixtures averaged a healthy 2.9 goals during their gripping campaign. The net rattled nine times in Feyenoord’s final pair of pre-season games which suggests Arne Slot’s men will be just as easy on the eye in 2021/22 and the over 2.5 goals market is worth backing again on Thursday with that in mind.

Drita vs Feyenoord Match Preview 

Drita

Drita finished as runners-up in the Football Superleague of Kosovo last season and secured European football for the third time in four seasons as a result. Coached by former Macedonian international Ardian Nuhiu, The Intellectuals squeezed past Montenegrin minnows Decic in the previous round of the competition, winning 3-1 on aggregate.

Feyenoord

A new era dawns at Feyenoord this week as Arne Slot takes the reins for a competitive game for the first time having replaced legendary coach Dick Advocaat in the hotseat. Feyenoord’s preparations were hit by the loss of prolific midfielder Steven Berghuis to bitter rivals Ajax, though they made an interesting acquisition in Iranian winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who returned to the Netherlands following an unsuccessful stint with Brighton in England.
