Feyenoord vs Ajax Match Preview
Feyenoord will be hoping the announcement that manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst is leaving the club at the end of the season will galvanise their players against Ajax.
Van Bronckhorst, who took charge of the Rotterdam club in the summer of 2015, guided them to the Eredivisie title in his second campaign but they have subsequently fallen well adrift of Ajax and PSV Eindhoven’s level.
The former Arsenal and Rangers midfielder has indicated to the club’s board that he wants to try something different and he should not have too much difficulty in acquiring an attractive job elsewhere in Europe.
At present, Feyenoord are in third position in the Dutch top-flight table, 11 points adrift of second-placed Ajax who are neck and neck with PSV in their quest to capture the crown for the first time since 2014.
Erik ten Hag has taken the famous Amsterdam club into the Champions League knockout stage and they are unbeaten since September, currently scoring goals for fun (see stats above).
With Feyenoord having only taken one point from the last nine available, all against teams below them in the league, this game looks destined to end in an Ajax victory – although the news of Van Bronckhorst’s impending departure may just engineer an improved performance from the home team.
