Feyenoord are certain of a third-placed finish in the Eredivisie this year, as they sit seven points behind second and six points above Sunday's visitors FC Twente, who occupy fourth spot.

Both sides enter this final game of the domestic campaign in fine form, with Feyenoord on a current 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions, and Twente have lost just once during the same time period.

Match preview

Arne Slot's side have a European final to look forward to at the end of this month, when they face Roma in the Europa Conference League final, and they will want to end their Eredivisie campaign with a win to head into that match.

Feyenoord returned to winning ways last time out on Wednesday, when they secured a 1-0 win against Go Ahead Eagles thanks to Bryan Linssen's 71st-minute strike from inside the 18-yard box.

Having lost just six games all year, and massively improved on their points tally from the previous campaign, Feyenoord will perhaps be disappointed that they could not finish in the top two and secure a Champions League qualification spot.

Sunday's hosts will be confident about securing a final win of the domestic season given that their are on home soil, where they have lost just twice this year and conceded only 13 goals, among the best records in the division.

Slot's team are likely to have more possession this weekend, as they have averaged more accurate passes per match than Twente this season, although, the visitors will be a threat in front of goal.

Twente have netted 25 goals in 16 away matches this year, and they added another three goals to their total tally for the season with victory against FC Groningen on home soil last time out.

Vaclav Cerny opened the scoring in the first half of that encounter, before Dimitrios Limnios netted himself a brace in the second period to seal a comfortable win for the hosts.

Ron Jans's side have been more vulnerable to leaking goals, though, on their travels, seeing 10 more goals fly past them away from home compared to their record on their own patch, and with Feyenoord's in form side, that could spell danger for Twente this weekend.

Twente have also bettered their performance from last year, collecting 24 points more this time around compared to last season, finishing six places higher in the division also, suggesting that they can reflect on this campaign in a positive manner.

Feyenoord and Twente could not be separated in the reverse fixture in November, when they both settled for a 0-0 draw, while Sunday's visitors secured victory in the last meeting against Feyenoord in the Dutch Cup.

Team News

Feyenoord goalkeeper Justin Bijlow has been sidelined since March due to injury, and the 24-year-old will remain absent meaning that Ofir Marciano will continue between the posts.

Slot utilised his squad's strength and depth in midweek, making seven changes to the starting 11 that lined up last weekend, but Marcos Senesi is expected to come back into the heart of defence in place of Lutsharel Geertruida.

Luis Sinisterra could also return on the left wing, potentially replacing Alireza Jahanbakhsh, with Patrik Walemark retaining his position in the starting lineup on the other flank.

Twente winger Virgil Misidjan featured off the bench last time out but does remain a doubt for this match, although, he is likely to be named among the substitutes again.

Jans made two changes to his side in midweek and that seemed to be the correct recipe for his side to bounce back from defeat, so Twente could name an unchanged team, with Mees Hilgers remaining in the heart of defence alongside captain Robin Propper.

Feyenoord possible starting lineup:
Marciano; Hendriks, Senesi, Trauner, Pedersen; Hendrix, Aursnes; Sinisterra, Toornstra, Walemark; Dessers

FC Twente possible starting lineup:
Unnerstall; Smal, Propper, Hilgers, Brenet; Sadilek, Zerrouki; Limnios, Vlap, Cerny; Van Wolfswinkel

We say: Feyenoord 2-1 FC Twente

With both teams certain of their final league positions ahead of this final match of the campaign, there is not a lot to play for, but Feyenoord will be looking ahead to their European final.

Perfect preparation for that match will be to secure a win this weekend, and being on home soil Feyenoord are backed to claim the three points, although, Twente could make it difficult for the hosts.
