Key Highlights

Feyenoord’s Unbeaten Start to their Eredivisie Campaign

Feyenoord have been in good form early on as they look to establish the platform to defend their domestic title. The reigning champions have played four times in the Eredivisie and are unbeaten. They have drawn twice and won twice.

Arne Slot and his charges opened their domestic campaign with an uninspiring 0-0 at Fortuna Sittard. The champions had to contend playing three-quarters of the match with 10 men after Bart Nieuwkoop was sent off in the 25th minute.

Feyenoord were held to a 2-2 draw away to Sparta Rotterdam before they bounced back in style with two consecutive wins.

The first win came in the 6-1 demolition of Almere before a commanding 1-5 win away to Utrecht last week served to underscore the genuine quality in Arne Slot’s side as they prepare to open their Group E Champions League campaign against Celtic.

Feyenoord’s form indicates that they are in a good place and will look to extend their good form into their Champions League group action on Tuesday.

Celtic’s Flying Form in the Scottish Premiership

Celtic are the pacesetters in the Scottish Premiership as they top the table after four rounds of fixtures. They have won three times and drawn once. Celtic have scored eight goals and conceded three times.

They have also kept two clean sheets, highlighting their defensive solidity and dynamism going forward. Striking the right balance between attack and defense will be central to their chances of getting something when they travel to the Netherlands to face Feyenoord.

Brendan Rodgers will be worried that his side have scored just once in their last two matches in the Scottish Premiership. They drew 0-0 at home to St. Johnstone and won 0-1 away to Rangers. 

Getting his side to be fluid and to bolster the attacking potency of his team will be high among the priorities Brendan Rodgers will be working on ahead of the trip to De Kuip on Tuesday. He knows that a good start will be important to bolster their chances of getting out of the group.

Injury Report

Feyenoord

Arne Slot will be without the suspended center-forward Santiago Gimenez for the match against Celtic.

Feyenoord will also be without the injured Justin Bijlow (wrist), Ayase Ueda (foot), and Bart Nieuwkoop (knock).

Celtic

Brendan Rodgers will be without the services of Stephen Welsh (ankle), Cameron Carter-Vickers (hamstring), Maik Nawrocki (hamstring), Reo Hatate (calf), and Liel Abada (thing muscle problem).

The absentees mean the gaffer must find the right personnel and shape to take on the Dutch champions on Tuesday.

Prediction

Feyenoord, playing in front of the De Kuip crowd, will look to dominate the ball, play progressively and on the front foot, and force Celtic back through pressing and counter-pressing. 

Brendan Rodgers will look to make his side difficult to play against while staying true to their playing style and principles. While they will not be too open in their approach, they will look to be on the front foot when on the ball.

Feyenoord will have too much for the Scottish champions; the Dutch side will win the match and take their first points in Group E.
