Line-up Feyenoord

  • Marciano;

    Pedersen, Trauner, Senesi, Malacia;

    Aursnes, Kokcu, Til;

    Toornstra, Linssen, Sinisterra.

The 32-year-old Marciano has already played two games for Feyenoord this season.

The goalkeeper, who was taken over transfer-free from the Scottish Hibernian FC last summer, also did so in the Conference League, also as a replacement for Bijlow.

He has not yet appeared in the competition.

Bijlow was found to be infected with the corona virus last Tuesday.

This was a new setback for the Rotterdammer, after he dropped out of the Orange squad with an injury last week for the crucial World Cup qualifier against Norway.

Furthermore, trainer Arne Slot sticks to his trusted position.

That means Marcus Pedersen, Gernot Trauner, Marcos Senesi and Tyrell Malacia are in the defense and Frederik Aursnes, Guus Til and Orkun Kökçü occupy the midfield.

Jens Toornstra, Bryan Linssen and Luis Sinisterra are at the forefront.

Feyenoord faces an important evening in the Conference League.

With at least a draw against the number two in the group, the team from Rotterdam is assured of the group win and a place in the eighth finals of the third European club tournament.

Slavia Prague-Feyenoord starts on Thursday at 6.45 pm and is led by Finnish referee Mattias Gestranius.

Unlike in the Netherlands, fans are welcome in the Eden Arena in Prague.
