Both Teams to Score

Last week’s slip-up at AZ aside, Feyenoord have been stacking up the wins in the Eredivisie of late, though Arne Slot’s side haven’t quite matched their results with clean sheets. Indeed, Feyenoord have kept only three in their last eight league assignments – a record that suggests Go Ahead could notch against them on Saturday. Feyenoord are ferociously consistent in attacker however, netting in 21 out of 24 Eredivisie fixtures this term, so back both teams to register.

Over 2.5 Goals

Feyenoord are prone to leaving the door open in defence, which in turn requires them to be prolific further up the pitch to compensate. The combination of factors has produced over 2.5 goals in 67% of their Eredivisie matches in 2021/22, while 70% of their last ten runouts in Rotterdam have also seen three or more goals. Similar levels of excitement are on the cards on Saturday for the visit of Groningen and we recommend sticking to the over 2.5 goals line with that in mind.

Orkun Kökçü to Score Anytime

Turkish midfielder Orkun Kökçü is enjoying a fine campaign with Feyenoord and the 21-year-old has added more goal-scoring threat to his game in recent weeks. Incredibly, the highly-regarded schemer has scored five times in his last five Eredivisie appearances and Kökçü’s hot streak could be worth backing in the anytime goalscorers market against Groningen.

Feyenoord vs Groningen: Match Preview and Team News


Feyenoord’s 2-1 defeat at AZ last weekend felt significant and now Arne Slot’s side have a real job on their hands to hold on to third spot ahead of their recent conquerors. De club aan de Maas have a superb 75%-win percentage in Rotterdam this season however, and even without injured pair Cyriel Dessers and Reiss Nelson, Feyenoord are well-equipped to push for another positive result at home on Saturday.


Groningen have just finished a run of games against three of the Eredivisie’s bottom four, though their haul of four points from the nine on offer in those tests is far from impressive. Danny Buijs’s outfit are languishing in mid-table and with little other than pride to play for between now and May, motivation could become an issue for his players.
