Next Thursday, Feyenoord will start the preliminary rounds of the brand new football tournament: the Conference League. The team of trainer Arne Slot travels to the FC Drita in Kosovo for this. Do you think Feyenoord will win and advance to the next round?
It is the first round in the Conference League for Feyenoord. Drita has already survived the first round and can now play against Feyenoord. The Conference League works the same as we are used to in the Champions League and Europa League. Four preliminary games will be played, followed by the group stage and knockouts. The final is decided in one match and played at a neutral venue.
Head 2 Head
Feyenoord has never visited Drita before. The team from Kosovo has also never been to Rotterdam before to play against Feyenoord. Therefore, Thursday will be the first meeting between these two teams.
Current form Drita FC
Drita played the previous Conference League against FK Decic, a team from Montenegro. Trainer Nuhiji’s team won 0-1 against Decic and also won 2-1 at home. Last season, the team finished second in the Superliga, the highest football competition in Kosovo.
Current form Feyenoord
Feyenoord has had a successful practice campaign. The match against AEK Athens was won 3-1. It was 1-1 against the Belgian KAA Gent, but the Feyenoord players left a good impression against Werder Bremen and Zurich. Only the Swiss Young Boys lost 2-0.
Which team do we aspect as winner
The first Conference League match of Feyenoord should be doable for the Rotterdammers as far as we are concerned. Our betting tip is 0-2 for Feyenoord in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo. The odds overview below gives you an indication of the average odds that the bookmakers use.
