"We should not underestimate them, because it is difficult to say anything about the qualities of both teams now. In any case, I hope that we are able to impose our will on them."

Feyenoord-IF Elfsborg a few seconds ago

Setup!

The Rotterdam defense should in any case pay attention to Jeppe Okkels at Elfsborg.

The attacker was presented to the Swedish team as the replacement for Jesper Karlsson, who left for AZ.

Okkels has now shown to have scoring abilities.

He was accurate twice in the previous qualifying round against Velez Mostar from Bosnia and Herzegovina. 



Line-up IF Elfsborg:

Rönning;

Larsson, Väisänen, McVey, Strand, Römer, Holst, Gojani;

Alm, Frick, Okkels.

Setup!

Is Jahanbakhsh indeed fit?

Feyenoord's line-up gives the answer: yes.

The winger is just kicking off in an otherwise little changed line-up.

One difference compared to the Eredivisie match with Willem II: Jens Toornstra goes back to midfield due to the return of Jahanbakhsh, while Fredrik Aursnes who is not eligible to play has to watch.

Line-



up Feyenoord:

Bijlow;

Pedersen, Trauner, Senesi, Malacia;

Toornstra, Kökçü, Til;

Jahanbakhsh, Linssen, Sinisterra.

"What is the position of Feyenoord?", that is indeed the big question of the Rotterdam fans.

Is Alireza Jahanbakhsh actually fit enough to play?

📲 'What is Feyenoord's position?!'

Anderlecht-Vitesse · a few seconds ago

Setup!

At Anderlecht, two Dutch players appear at the kick-off: Wesley Hoedt and Joshua Zirkzee.

The pair did not start the season with the Belgian record champion extremely well.

In the Belgian league, two of the four matches were won.



Anderlecht line-up:

Van Crombrugge;

Murillo Bermudez, Delcroix, Hoedt, Sergio Gomez, Amuzu, Cullen, Olsson, Refaelov;

Zirkzee, Raman.

Anderlecht-Vitesse · a few seconds ago

Setup!

In the run-up to Anderlecht-Vitesse, the biggest question marks were behind the names of last season's trendsetters: Oussama Tannane and Riechedly Bazoer.

Tannane is again fit enough to return to the match selection, but he is not at the kick-off.

Bazoer is 'normal' in Thomas Letsch's starting line-up.



Vitesse line-up: 

Schubert;

Dasa, Bazoer, Oroz, Hajek, Wittek;

Bero, Gboho, Tronstad;

Darfalou, Frederiksen.
