Feyenoord and AZ will perform without major surprises in the starting line-ups on Sunday in the mutual top match in Rotterdam.
Calvin Stengs is fit enough to start with the Alkmaarders.
The attacking midfielder was in doubt due to a minor upper leg injury, but is available for coach Pascal Jansen, who continues to stick to his usual starting line-up from the past few weeks.
For central defender Bruno Martins Indi, the match against Feyenoord will be a reunion with the club where he went through the youth academy and played more than a hundred official matches between 2010 and 2014.
Feyenoord coach Dick Advocaat chooses the same starting line-up against AZ as last Sunday against Ajax, when the team from Rotterdam lost 1-0.
Ridgeciano Haps can once again start as a left winger, which means that Bryan Linssen and Luis Sinisterra are watching from the couch.
In rush hour, Nicolai Jørgensen is preferred over winter head Lucas Pratto.
At 4.45 pm, referee Allard Lindhout will kick off in De Kuip.
Feyenoord is number four one point ahead of AZ, which occupies fifth place.
