The 2020-21 Eredivisie campaign continues this weekend, and on Sunday afternoon, RKC Waalwijk face off with Feyenoord.
Dick Advocaat’s Feyenoord side currently sit in fourth place in the Eredivisie table after a strong start to their season.
Waalwijk, meanwhile, are in 13th place after winning just one of their opening five matches.
RKC Waalwijk vs Feyenoord Head-to-Head
Waalwijk have found life in the Eredivisie tricky in 2020-21. Their season began with a 0-1 defeat to Vitesse, and they followed that with further losses to Ajax and Utrecht.
A win over Heracles steadied the ship somewhat, and their last match saw them secure a point against PEC Zwolle on Wednesday.
Feyenoord, meanwhile, are unbeaten in domestic competition, winning three and drawing two of their opening five games. In midweek, they drew an away match with Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.

RKC Waalwijk vs Feyenoord Prediction
Feyenoord are on a strong run right now, with top scorer Steven Berghuis on fire. He’s scored six goals in his five Eredivisie matches in 2020-21, and given Waalwijk’s penchant for leaking goals – they’ve conceded nine in five – you wouldn’t bet against him scoring again in this match.
Overall, this looks like it should be a comfortable win for Dick Advocaat’s team.
