- Feyenoord have suffered just one defeat in their last 24 outings
- Roma are on a run of just two wins in their last 11 away fixtures
- Feyenoord are unbeaten at home in the Europa League this season
Can Feyenoord continue their strong form?
It continues to be a thoroughly impressive season for Feyenoord, who are eight points clear at the top of the Dutch Eredivisie and have suffered just one defeat since late October.
That loss was a 2-1 cup reverse against Ajax earlier this month, but they bounced back at the weekend by beating RKC Waalwijk 5-1, an eighth successive league victory.
Arne Slot’s side are therefore in good form, especially at De Kuip, where they have suffered a solitary defeat in 21 outings, including three victories and a draw in four Europa fixtures.
On top of that, they are looking to gain revenge for their Europa Conference League final defeat to Roma last season, so will certainly have the bit between their teeth for this encounter.
Roma’s away form is cause for concern
Roma on the other hand sit in third place in Serie A, aided by wins in their last two matches against Torino and beleaguered Sampdoria.
Prior to that, though, Jose Mourinho’s side were on a run of just two victories in six, while they have only picked up a couple successes in their last 11 away matches.
That streak includes four defeats, against Napoli, Cremonese and Lazio in the league and Salzburg in this competition, one of two losses in five Europa League away fixtures, winning only once.
I predict that Feyenoord will win this game, with a 2-0 home victory my correct score prediction.
