Feyenoord vs Groningen Prediction
Feyenoord's loss to AZ Alkmaar saw them fail to take advantage of Ajax's rare slip-up in the title race. In light of that, they will welcome a return to their home turf where they have one of the best records in the league.
Groningen are, however, capable of causing an upset and their compact style of play means that the hosts might not get enough space to exploit. Nevertheless, we are backing Feyenoord to secure a comfortable victory in addition to a clean sheet.
Prediction: Feyenoord 2-0 Groningen
