Groningen hosts Feyenoord in round 21 of the Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 24th at Euroborg (Groningen)
The sixth Groningen will host one of the closest rivals from above. The Green-White Army lags behind it by four points, so there is a good chance to reduce the gap in a head-to-head meeting. It will put a lot of pressure on the motivation of Groningen, which is one of the strongest home teams in Holland. Danny Buijs' charges suffered only two defeats in eleven home rounds. Even the leader of the championship, Ajax, was forced to capitulate in Groningen. The current level of the team's game should also be taken into account: it suffered only three defeats in the last 10 rounds, and two of them were on the road. One can summarize: Groningen is an unyielding home team that is not in a game crisis and has overwhelming motivation for the upcoming match.

Feyenoord is in 4th place. But recently, only home matches have helped the team to stay in the top four. Dick Advocaat's charges are actively losing points on the road. In the last five away rounds, the team managed to suffer four defeats and gained only one victory over the crisis-ridden Sparta. Two matches with a well-organized middle peasant in the person of Heerenveen can be a good example of Feyenoord’s instability in away matches. First, Feyenoord came to this middle peasant on January 27 and lost with a 3:0 score in the championship. And on February 17, Dick Advocaat and his guys opposed Heerenveen in the quarterfinals of the Dutch Cup. Despite the overwhelming motivation, Feyenoord suffered another defeat from the middle peasant (4:3). The team's problems lie in too weak defense.
It will be a meeting of two approximately equal rivals, where one should take into account a strong bias in motivation in favor of the hosts due to their worse tournament position. It is worth considering the nature of the teams' game at home and away. And we think that Groningen will manage to gain at least a draw.
Prediction for the match: Groningen to win with +0.5 handicap
