Feyenoord coach Arne Slot made two changes on Wednesday for the competition match with NEC. Attackers Santiago Giménez and Javairô Dilrosun are in the base at the expense of Danilo and Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
Jahanbakhsh and Danilo were still at the kick-off against Ajax (1-1) on Sunday, but now have to take a seat on the bench. Igor Paixão, who opened the score against Ajax, is left winger.
Mats Wieffer, Orkun Kökçü and Sebastian Szymanski again form the midfield at the leader of the Eredivisie. Winter reinforcement Neraysho Kasanwirjo is entitled to play, but is sitting on the bench in De Kuip. Quinten Timber, who made his comeback against Ajax (1-1) on Sunday as a substitute, is again reserve.
Slot holds on to Marcus Pedersen, Lutsharel Geertruida, Dávid Hancko and Quilindschy Hartman in the back. Defender Gernot Trauner is still injured.
Feyenoord wants to expand its lead over the competition against NEC. PSV lost 1-0 at FC Emmen on Tuesday. AZ and FC Twente are currently playing against Go Ahead Eagles and Vitesse respectively. Ajax will receive FC Volendam on Thursday.
