Feyenoord wants to revanch itself on Wednesday on a visit to sc Heerenveen in the quarter finals of the TOTO KNVB Cup Tournament.

The Rotterdammers lost no chance at the end of last month with 3-0 against the Frisians in the Eredivisie.

"I do have the feeling that this is alive within the group," says trainer Dick Advocaat on the Feyenoord website on Tuesday.

At the same time, he expects an eager Heerenveen again.

"They also know that they are in the cup final with two victories."

Midfielder Orkun Kökçü agrees with the words of Advocaat.

"We know that we have to take revenge on that 3-0. We will do everything we can. If you win, you will be in the semi-finals. There are only three games left and you can already qualify European."

For Feyenoord, the KNVB cup is perhaps extra important, because the winner directly qualifies for the group stage of the Europa League.

The team is currently in fifth place in the league, which means participation in the play-offs at the end of the season for a ticket in the preliminary rounds of the new Confererence League.

"Wednesday's game is very important, but also through the league we can still qualify for European football. We are also still in the race there," said Advocaat.

"The quarterfinals are the most important game of the season at the moment. It's a shame that, like the whole season, we live in our own bubble. Normally you are approached at the office, or along the training field. Now there is hardly any. staff present, while our training sessions are closed. But with us in the staff and selection this match is very alive. "

sc Heerenveen against Feyenoord starts on Wednesday at 6.45 pm in the Abe Lenstra Stadium and is led by referee Siemen Mulder.

The winner takes on Ajax in the semi-finals in-house.

The game should have been completed last week, but was then canceled due to the winter weather.

Lawyer fears that the snow and frost have not done the grass with good.

"When we played there in January, the field was already terrible. Now it seems to be even worse, but we have no further influence on that."
