Feyenoord will start on Thursday without Marcos Senesi in the Conference League match in De Kuip with Union Berlin.

The Argentine defender is injured and will be replaced by Lutsharel Geertruida.


Luis Sinisterra and Guus Til are fit enough to start with the Rotterdam team.

Line-up Feyenoord

  • Bijlow;

    Pedersen, Trauner, Geertruida, Malacia;

    Toornstra, Til, Kökçü;

    Jahanbakhsh, Linssen, Sinisterra.

Lineup Union Berlin

  • Luthe;

    Jaeckel, Knoche, Baumgartl;

    Trimmel, Moehwald, Khedira, Proemel, Puchacz;

    Kruse, Awoniyi.

The 24-year-old Senesi, who was substituted against RKC Waalwijk (2-2) in the second half, is also not on the bench.

Geertruida was allowed to fill in twice in the Conference League and is first in the starting lineup against Union Berlin.

There was a question mark behind the names of Til and Sinisterra.

The Colombian missed the home game with RKC due to international obligations and did not return to Rotterdam completely fit.

Slot indicated at the press conference on Wednesday that Sinisterra was being tested in training and given his starting position, he successfully passed that test.

With the return of Sinisterra, Cryriel Dessers moves to the bench and Bryan Linssen starts the attack.

With Sinisterra, Slot has a major player back.

The attacker is the most valuable player for Feyenoord in this European campaign with five goals and four assists.

In addition to Sinisterra, Slot also has Til, who was injured against RKC on Saturday.

The four-time international forms the midfield of Feyenoord with Orkun Kökçü and Jens Toornstra.

Furthermore, trainer Slot sticks to his trusted names.

Baumgartl base at Union, Becker on the bench

At Union Berlin, which is fifth in the Bundesliga, there is a basic place for defender Timo Baumgartl, who is rented from PSV.

Sheraldo Becker is on the bench with trainer Urs Fischer's team.

The 26-year-old Surinamese international has been playing for Union since 2019, which took him over from ADO Den Haag.

The duel between Feyenoord and Union Berlin starts on Thursday at 6.45 pm in De Kuip.

The match is led by Georgian referee Giorgi Kruashvili.

The other game in Group E of the Conference League, Maccabi Haifa-Slavia Prague, also kicks off at 6.45 pm.
