Feyenoord will have to do without goalkeeper Justin Bijlow for the time being. The keeper has broken his wrist and therefore misses the top match against PSV on Sunday.
Feyenoord reports in a short statement that Bijlow is out of circulation “for a long time”, without giving a time indication. The 26-year-old goalkeeper suffered a wrist fracture on Friday during a training session for the top match against PSV.
Bijlow’s long-term absence is a major downer for trainer Arne Slot. The six-time international of Orange has not yet missed a Feyenoord game this season and was without injury for the first time for a longer period of time.
Last season, Bijlow missed many matches due to a foot injury. Second keeper Ofir Marciano therefore came to twenty official matches. In the 2020/2021 season, Bijlow also had to miss many duels due to injuries.
Wellenreuther will normally do the honors under the bar in the absence of Bijlow. The 27-year-old German is rented from Anderlecht this season. The German previously played for Willem II for several years and therefore already has a hundred Eredivisie matches to his name.
The top match between Feyenoord and PSV starts on Sunday at 2.30 pm and is led by referee Danny Makkelie. The team from Rotterdam currently has four points more than PSV and can make an important battle for their own audience in the title fight.
