Tonight, the Eredivisie continues with four matches, of which Feyenoord-Vitesse is the most eye-catching. View the probable lineups and the injury news of all matches from Saturday and Sunday below.
NEC – Heracles Almelo (Saturday 6.45 pm)
Specialties NEC: The biggest question at NEC is whether trainer Rogier Meijer sticks to the 5-3-2 system or opts for 4-3-3. This is especially important for defender Rodrigo Guth and striker and club top scorer in the Eredivisie Ali Akman. NEC is still missing Édgar Barreto, Jonathan Okita and Joep van der Sluijs this weekend.
Special features of Heracles: Delano Burgzorg has recovered from his groin injury, but is not yet ready to play an entire game. He sustained the injury in early December. Marco Rente is suspended, his replacement in the center of the defense is Sven Sonnenberg.
Feyenoord – Vitesse (Saturday 8 p.m.)
Specifics Feyenoord: Arne Slot misses left winger Luis Sinisterra, who was injured before the winter break. The Colombian is training again and hopes to be available again next week in Nijmegen against NEC. Reiss Nelson will replace him against Vitesse.
Specifics Speed: Adrian Grbic stands for his debut with Vitesse. The Austrian striker can hope for a base place in the top match against Feyenoord. ,,He is fit and ready to play,” says trainer Thomas Letsch. ,,He has continued training at Lorient in recent weeks. He also got in here effortlessly. So he can start. He’s in the squad anyway.” Letsch officially has the complete group of players for the squatter in the Kuip. But in the winter there have been corona cases in the Arnhem camp. The club is keeping the names secret for privacy reasons.
FC Twente – SC Heerenveen (Saturday 8 p.m.)
Particulars FC Twente: FC Twente is disappointed that the appeal against the suspension of Michal Sadilek has not been successful. “You have justice and crookedness,” said trainer Ron Jans. “You miss a certain football atmosphere in such a profession, but that has been a point of discussion at the clubs for years.” Also absent: Ramiz Zerrouki (Africa Cup), Vaclav Cerny (corona), Wout Brama, Kik Pierie and Jody Lukoki (all injured).
Details Heerenveen: Erwin Mulder injured his thumb in September, but now that he has recovered, he will not get his place in Heerenveen’s goal back. Xavier Mous made a good impression as a replacement and trainer Johnny Jansen has therefore decided that he will keep his base place.
Go Ahead Eagles – RKC Waalwijk (Saturday 9 p.m.)
Special features Go Ahead Eagles: Go Ahead Eagles has a major setback at the restart of the competition in the Eredivisie, tomorrow evening in the important game with RKC. Spaniard Marc Cardona will be sidelined in the coming weeks with a muscle injury in the thigh. Giannis Botos will also remain on the sidelines for a long time with an ankle injury.
It makes the list of absentees at Eagles considerable. In addition to the suspended Joris Kramer, Martijn Berden (knee surgery) and Comoros footballer Yacine Bourhane, who is active in the Africa Cup, are also missing. Greek defender Aventis Aventisian makes his debut in the match selection at Go Ahead.
Special features RKC Waalwijk: RKC misses Saïd Bakari, who participates in the Africa Cup with the Comoros. Last week’s corona cases (five) have now returned in the selection of coach Joseph Oosting.
FC Utrecht – Ajax (Sunday 12.15 pm)
Details FC Utrecht: The 21-year-old Fabian de Keijzer makes his official debut in the top match against Ajax. He is the new first keeper, so it was decided this winter break. Former first goalkeeper Maarten Paes is going to look elsewhere: he is about to leave for Dallas FC in the Major League Soccer.
Special features Ajax: It is expected that it will not be that bad for Ajax in terms of corona cases. It is still unclear whether Lisandro Martínez will be fit in time for the clash in Utrecht. Like Mohammed Kudus, the Argentinian resumed training during the aborted training camp in Portugal. Noussair Mazraoui trained fully with that again.
FC Groningen – PSV (Sunday 14.30)
Special features FC Groningen: Asset Melayro Bogarde, rented from Hoffenheim for six months, may already make his debut for FC Groningen on Sunday. Furthermore, goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh is ‘just’ under the bar against PSV. In recent weeks, the battle for the place in the goal has been open again. Reserve keeper Jan Hoekstra gets the chance to prove himself midweek in the cup against NEC. Radinio Balker, Neraysho Kasanwirjo and Daleho Irandust are not available.
Specialties PSV: After a tumultuous and messy winter break, PSV wants to defend the lead in Groningen. There are quite a few uncertainties, because Armando Obispo can also start in the back. Perhaps there is an important role for Ritsu Doan, who made the switch from Euroborg to Eindhoven in 2019. Ryan Thomas (knee), Eran Zahavi (knee), Noni Madueke (hamstring), André Ramalho (ankle) are missing with injuries, Ibrahim Sangaré this month with Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup.
SC Cambuur – Sparta (Sunday 14.30)
Cambuur details: Newcomer Patrick Joosten (rented from FC Groningen) can immediately start working for Cambuur, which is largely protected from corona. Several players have been quarantined last week. David Sambissa and Issa Kallon are active in the Africa Cup and Mitchel Paulissen replaces Robin Maulun, who has not trained often after an infection.
Particulars Sparta: In times when corona does not pass by Sparta, it is unclear until shortly before the kick-off against Cambuur which players trainer Henk Fraser can use. It is certain that captain Adil Auassar and goalkeeper Maduka Okoye are missing from Leeuwarden tomorrow. The striker Adrián Dalmau who came over from FC Utrecht and the midfielder Youssef Namli hired from the Russian FK Krasnodar will probably make their debut.
Fortuna Sittard – AZ (Sunday 4.45 pm)
Specialties Fortuna: Fortuna Sittard can use the new goalkeeper Michael Verrips for the first time during the home game against AZ on Sunday. He normally starts directly in the starting line-up. This is at the expense of Yannick van Osch, who was the first choice under the bar of trainer Sjors Ultee until the winter break.
Special features AZ: Bruno Martins Indi will miss the resumption of the Eredivisie due to the aftermath of a foot operation. It is difficult to estimate how long he will be out of circulation. Sam Beukema is his most likely replacement. The popular summer addition would then start in the base for the second time this Eredivisie season.
