The 2020-21 edition of the Dutch Eredivisie continues this weekend as Willem II face off with Feyenoord on Sunday afternoon.
The match goes down at the Konig Willem II Stadion, and will see the home side looking for an upset win against Dick Advocaat’s undefeated side, who are currently third in the Eredivisie table.
Willem II vs Feyenoord Head-to-Head
Feyenoord were able to do the double over Willem II during the 2019-20 edition of the Eredivisie. They won 0-1 at the Konig Willem II Stadion back in September 2019, and then picked up a 2-0 win at the De Kuip Stadium in March.
Coincidentally, the game was one of the final Eredivisie fixtures before the 2019-20 season was curtailed due to Covid-19.
In the current campaign, Feyenoord are unbeaten with two wins and a single draw to their name, while Willem II have picked up one win, one loss and one draw. They’ve also been eliminated from the Europa League by Rangers.

Willem II vs Feyenoord Prediction
This could be a trickier test for Feyenoord than it initially appears on paper, as Willem II are a pretty solid side with some decent talent available to them.
However, Dick Advocaat’s side have been in excellent form lately and have plenty of goal threats available to them. An away win is the most likely outcome in this encounter.
