Feyenoord will host PAOK at De Kuip in a club friendly fixture on Sunday. The exhibition game is scheduled to be played across four quarters of 30 minutes each.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a disappointing goalless draw away to Kosovo side Drita in their Europa Conference League qualifier on Thursday.

PAOK picked up a 2-1 victory over another Dutch side Heracles in a friendly on Wednesday. Nelson Oliveira scored a first-half brace to give the Greek side the victory.

Up next for Feyenoord will be the second leg of their tie with Drita, then another friendly with Den Haag before resuming competitive action in the Eredivisie.

Feyenoord vs PAOK Prediction

The unique format of this exhibition game means that several players are likely to be given a run-in, thereby affecting the rhythm and tempo of the game.

However, Feyenoord coach Arne Slot has more quality players at this disposal and home advantage could also factor in for the Eredivisie outfit.

We are predicting a victory for Feyenoord in a thrilling game with plenty of goals.

Prediction: Feyenoord 3-2 PAOK
