Feyenoord and Maccabi Haifa will trade tackles at De Kuip in a matchday six fixture in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.
The hosts come into the game on the back of a resounding 5-0 home win over Sittard in the Eredivisie. Brian Linssen starred with a brace and two assists in the rout.
Maccabi Haifa were equally rampant in a 4-0 away victory over Nof Hagalil. Four different men got on the scoresheet for the visitors.
They will turn their attention to continental action, where they have already been eliminated from the running in Group E. Feyenoord have already booked their spot in the knockout round and will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the competition.

Feyenoord vs Maccabi Haifa Prediction
Feyenoord are significantly superior to Maccabi Haifa and are favorites to secure all three points. The visitors have struggled to raise their standards on the continent and their poor attacking returns suggest they might not trouble the hosts.
Their defensive solidity saw them keep a clean sheet in the first leg but such heroics are unlikely to be repeated. We expect Feyenoord to secure a victory at home.
Prediction: Feyenoord 2-0 Maccabi Haifa
